Leeds United fans angry with O’Kane for getting sent off

Leeds United headed into Saturday’s match against Ipswich Town knowing that a victory would help boost their chances of securing a playoff spot.

Thomas Christiansen’s side, though, did not take a single point at the final whistle as Ipswich earned a 1-0 win.

The major talking point of the match came when the contest was goalless in the first half.

Eunan O’Kane was sent off by the referee in the 37th minute after appearing to headbutt Jonas Knudsen in an off-the-ball incident at Portman Road.

The 27-year-old midfielder was given a straight red card, and after the match, the manager confirmed to reporters that the club intend to appeal it.

The Irishman’s dismissal may have played a huge role in the result as Bersant Celina scored the one and only goal of the game when Leeds were down to 10 men.

On Twitter, Leeds fans gave their thoughts on the incident, and understandably, plenty were furious with O’Kane’s actions.
