Alioski tweets reaction to penalty snub, Leeds United fans react

Leeds United’s troubles continued on Tuesday night when they took on Derby County at Elland Road.

Overall, the Whites are seventh in the Championship table – a healthy position considering that they are only two points off the playoff places and eight adrift of the top two.

However, Thomas Christiansen’s side were stronger promotion contenders earlier in the season as they spent a spell in the top three during an unbeaten seven-game run.

Since then, Leeds have lost six and won just two, with their recent result ending in a 2-1 defeat to Derby.

Pierre-Michel Lasogga had put the Yorkshire club ahead inside eight minutes, but two second-half goals from Sam Winnall crushed the team’s hopes of victory.

The scoreline could have been different had Ezgjan Alioski been awarded a penalty five minutes before the half-time break after going to ground under the challenge of Andre Wisdom, but the referee waved away the claims.

The 25-year-old winger’s tweet was met with support from fans, but also some negativity.
