Leeds United fans are furious with the referee after their defeat at Millwall

Leeds United fans have been left rueing one crucial decision in their defeat at Millwall on Saturday after the referee decided to send off Gaetano Berardi in the 14th minute.

Managerless Millwall converted the resulting penalty to take the lead before doubling their advantage on the stroke of half time, as Tom Bradshaw fired home a smart finish after good build-up play between Ben Thompson and Shane Ferguson, with the 28-year-old teeing up the striker with a deft backheel assist.

Straight after the break, Leeds pulled one back when Ezgjan Alioski tapped in a Jack Harrison cross, but Marcelo Bielsa’s side could not find an equaliser despite dominating with 71.3% possession in the second half, even with one less player than their opposition.

Several of the Whites’ fanbase took to Twitter to blast the referee for his role in the defeat.

One supporter believed there had to be an anti-Leeds agenda, claiming it is ‘100% cheating’, while another fan said the man in the middle should be demoted as he’s seen better officiating in an Under-9s league.

A further member of the Elland Road faithful called out the Football League for being ‘corrupt’ with one more describing the referee’s performance as ‘shocking.’

Here’s the best of the reaction:
