Wood's Burnley lose to former club Leeds

Leeds United manager Thomas Christiansen is hopeful that the midweek victory over a Premier League side in Burnley gives Whites the confidence to launch a promotion bid this season.

Leeds supporters were left perplexed after 120 minutes of their Carabao Cup clash with Burnley on Tuesday night, when a police officer seemingly advised the referee against allowing the penalty shootout to take place at the away supporters' end of Turf Moor.

The Ladbrokes twitter account featured a tweet reading "Dear Chris Wood & Charlie Taylor, (middle finger emoji), Yours sincerely, Leeds fans".

Former Leeds player Wood scored a late equaliser as his side twice came back from a goal down, only to lose 5-3 on penalties after extra-time. "We have contacted Ladbrokes and are awaiting a full response", the club said in a statement.

Ladbroke's are Burnley's "official United Kingdom betting partner" and they sponsor the Cricket Field Stand at Turf Moor.

A tight, tense contest came to life in the final 10 minutes, with Hadi Sacko putting the visitors in front only for former Leeds favourite Chris Wood to equalise with a cool penalty.

"It's a unusual business, football", Dyche said. 20-odd million they've made for a club (in transfer fees) and they get slaughtered.

Boyhood Leeds fan Taylor destroyed his relationship with numerous supporters after former manager Garry Monk revealed that he refused to play in the final match of last season with a move to the Premier League pending.

Those two have been fantastic servants to Leeds, if I'm honest.
