Liam Cooper expresses frustration on Twitter following Leeds defeat

Leeds United lost 1-0 to Brentford on Saturday and defender Liam Cooper has since taken to social media to have his say on the result.

Leeds United defender Liam Cooper has expressed his frustration on Twitter following the club’s 1-0 defeat to Brentford on Saturday.

Neil Redfearn’s side saw their four-match undefeated streak come to an end when Alex Pritchard scored the only goal of the game, but Leeds fans were left to rue some questionable refereeing decisions.

Had Leeds won they would have made it three wins on the bounce but they saw three penalty appeals waved away by official Graham Salisbury.

Striker Billy Sharp’s failure to be awarded a spot-kick was the hardest to take as Pritchard scored what proved to be the match-winner soon after, and now Leeds’ captain has sent a message on his official Twitter account regarding the match.

“Can’t say what I want to!!!,” Cooper wrote. “But think we are all thinking the same!! Got to dust ourselves down and look to Tuesday! You fans were awesome!”

Cooper has played every minute of Leeds’ last 13 Championship matches and he looks to be developing an impressive partnership with recent loan signing Sol Bamba.

And while they were unable to get another much-needed victory under their belts this time out, Redfearn’s men must now turn their attention to their match away to Reading on Tuesday evening.
