Leeds United fans react miserably to news of televised match

Leeds United discovered on Tuesday that their Championship match against Barnsley will be shown live on Sky Sports.

Thomas Christiansen’s men take on the Tykes on November 25 at Oakwell, and it could be a crucial fixture for the team.

The last time that the pair met at Barnsley’s home ground was in January and the Whites were beaten 3-2 after initially taking the lead through Chris Wood, who joined Burnley in the summer.

With that result seemingly still fresh in some of the fans’ minds, the reaction to Sky’s announcement was not met with much glee.

In fact, some supporters believe that they are destined to lose at Oakwell.

Leeds are going through a disappointing spell after their seven game unbeaten run in the Championship came to an end.

The Whites, who narrowly missed out on a playoff spot last year, have lost three of their last four league outings.

The club have dropped from top spot to fifth, but are only four points adrift of top spot.
