Leeds fans bemoan poor officiating after QPR score despite handball

Leeds’ recent misery continued in their visit to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium as they slumped to another defeat, meaning they are now on a run on just one win in eight games.

Such a sequence of results is threatening to derail their promotion bid, with the likes of Brentford and Fulham breathing down their necks, but the game against QPR could have been a lot different if a key decision went their way.

The R’s winning goal came in the first half when Nahki Wells bundled home following Eberechi Eze’s blocked free-kick, but the ball appeared to hit the striker’s arm before he found the net.

Luke Ayling led the players’ protests to the referee on the pitch but plenty of fans shared their sentiment and voiced their complaints with the officials for what they believed was a very poor decision.

To make matters worse Leeds could have had a penalty when the match was still goalless, with Helder Costa appearing to be tripped in the penalty area.

Some supporters believe those poor decisions may have been down to what they label the “London curse”, a theory which has some truth to it given the Whites’ recent results in the capital.
