Leeds fans react on Twitter as four ex-players score during Fulham draw

Fulham Craven Cottage

A strange night at Craven Cottage saw no less than four ex-Leeds stars net as Fulham drew 2-2 with Wigan.

Leeds United have had their crossovers with Fulham this season - having sold two of their strikers to their Championship rivals.

But Friday night took things to a new level. Indeed, both those ex-Leeds forwards scored for the west London side - while another two former Elland Road stars netted for Wigan Athletic. The Cottagers drew 2-2 with fellow strugglers Wigan, as Ross McCormack, Matt Smith, Jermaine Pennant and Jason Pearce all got their names on the scoresheet.


Naturally, Leeds fans couldn't resist passing comment on the phenomenon and most expressed sheer disbelief. Others rued the sale of Smith and McCormack - while one even managed to bring up the disturbing fact that Pearce has more goals this season than Steve Morison.

The struggles continue for Fulham, as home fans booed boss Kit Symons (who took McCormack off for a defender late on). Wigan, meanwhile, still have an awful lot to do if they are to avoid relegation from the Championship.

Both sides were helped by former Leeds players on Friday, though, and supporters at Craven Cottage were spared a bore 0-0 draw by the quartet. Here's what United fans made of the eventful encounter on Twitter after the game...
