Leeds fans fume at Redfearn on Twitter after he overlooks striker

Elland Road East Stand

We compile the best reaction from Leeds United supporters on Twitter after Billy Sharp was left on the substitutes' bench in their defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion.

Leeds United supporters appear frustrated with Neil Redfearn's continued snubbing of Billy Sharp. 

The Whites frontman was left on the substitutes' bench for the entirety of their match against Brighton and Hove Albion last night, despite the Yorkshire side needing two goals to turn the game around.

Leeds were 2-0 down and Sharp looked the natural addition to make, considering his goalscoring record at Championship level.

However, Redfearn turned to Mirco Antenucci, Souleymane Doukara and Edgar Cani ahead of the former Southampton man and it has left most supporters bewildered.

Although Sharp has not had the greatest of times at Elland Road so far - with the frontman scoring just three times in 22 appearances - he is the most proven of any of their attacking options and most fans would like to see him given more of a chance. 

Leeds' strikers have all struggled to find the net with any regularity this campaign and Sharp, therefore, looks amongst their better bets for a goal. 

Here is the best reaction to Sharp's exclusion from Leeds fans last night on social media site Twitter.
