Leeds United fans react to Lee Johnson’s post-match comments

Leeds United won 1-0 against Bristol City in the Championship on Saturday.

The Whites enjoyed 69% of possession and attempted 21 shots during the game.

After the match, Bristol boss Lee Johnson said that Leeds were the better side of the two, but that the Robins should have had a penalty.

In the second half, Bristol City appealed for a penalty after Luke Ayling dived to stop an Eliasson cross. They asked for a handball to be given, but the referee allowed the game to go on.

Johnson said that it was ‘a stonewall penalty’ and they do not deserve the result.

He said to BBC Sport: “We then came into it a little bit more when we relaxed and started playing. Leeds were still good, they deserved the win today – but we didn’t deserve what happened to us with the [not awarded] penalty decision.

“It’s a stonewall penalty. It’s too big a game to not get those things right. It’s probably just the fear of Leeds away.”

Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Graham Smyth was covering the game, and he posted the report on social networking site Twitter. Many Leeds fans responded to his Twitter post, saying that Johnson always finds something to complain about.
