Millwall Football Club celebrate winning promotion to the Championship

By Harvey Byrne

Leeds fans have aired their disappointment on Twitter after Millwall defeated local side Bradford in the play-offs on Saturday afternoon.

The two sides met each other at Wembley for the League One play-off final and it was a close-fought encounter, but a goal from former Whites forward Steve Morison ensured that Neil Harris’ side would be playing in the Championship next season.

It now means that rather than a short trip across Yorkshire to Bradford Leeds fans will now be faced with another trip down to London to face Millwall.

This has noticeably caused a lot of disappointment among the Elland Road support on social media with many keen to see more local fixtures.

Meanwhile, others took to lay into former striker Morison, who had an underwhelming two years at Leeds between 2013 and 2015.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Leeds last faced Millwall in February 2015 at Elland Road in the Championship with a goal from academy graduate proving decisive in the 1-0 win.

Fans will now be hoping for a similar score line when the two sides meet again next season as Garry Monk’s men look to win promotion themselves.
