Burnley demand explanation from Ladbrokes after sponsor taunts players

League Cup round-up: Irish pair involved for Brighton

However, Leeds will look forward to the challenge another Premier League opponent will offer them, after Christiansen's side made a strong start to the 2017/18 campaign in both the Sky Bet Championship and Carabao Cup.

Scott Arfield and Ashley Barnes were also guilty of missing from close range but the game only sprung into action after some second-half substitutions as Wood replaced Sam Vokes and Brady also entered under the radar, but it was Sacko who broke the deadlock for Leeds.

"The club are aware of the problem".

'We have contacted Ladbrokes and are awaiting a full response'.

The tweet in queston has since been deleted by Ladbrokes and, speaking after the loss, Burnley boss Dyche admitted that it was insane for Leeds fans to be calling Wood and Taylor all the names under the Sun due to the amount of cash that the duo brought in to Elland Road as a result of their sales.

With just 2 minutes of stoppage time left and with the game set to go to extra time James Tarkowski pulled Kemar Roofe away from the ball and a penalty was awarded.




'It's a unusual business, football, ' mused Dyche. Twenty-odd million they've made for a club [in transfer fees] and they get slaughtered.

The betting firm have since apologised: "They were very poorly conceived tweets which have since been deleted".

"Maybe I got the changes wrong, but I was expecting a lot more from my players".

Those two have been fantastic servants to Leeds, if I'm honest.

It was a largely uneventful game, before an incredible end to the 90 minutes.

Extra time passed with no further goals and so a shootout was needed to split the teams. The team sacked the Premier League winning manager, Claudio Ranieri about halfway through the season a year ago.
