'Clueless', 'Nooooo' – Leeds fans fume at one Heckingbottom decision v Derby
Paul Heckingbottom left star attacker Samu Saiz out of his starting XI for the Championship clash against Derby on Wednesday evening and fans aren’t happy.
Leeds’ star attacker returns tonight for the first time since his six-match suspension for spitting and Heckingbottom had hinted that he might ease him back into action gently.
However, fans are still not happy to see him sitting on the bench tonight.
The team news was announced on the official Leeds Twitter page on Wednesday evening ahead of the 7.54pm kick-off.

Leeds are desperate for three points to keep their faint play-off hopes alive but Derby will be looking for the decisive victory that would take them back into the automatic promotion places.
And Leeds fans are convinced that Saiz is the man to help them come out on top.
Here are the best reactions from disgruntled Leeds fans:
Where’s my boy Saiz?????????

442 against Their 433. No Saiz starting. Anita dropped after a really decent showing. Not great from heckingbottom. Less than convinced so far.
