Cardiff City star, who scored v Leeds United, explains 'strange' feeling at Elland Road

Sean Morrison was discussing the atmosphere, considering the fact there were no Cardiff fans present.

Leeds United's poor run of form since the mystery suspension to assistant manager Steve Thompson continued yesterday, as they were defeated by Cardiff City at Elland Road.

It was a poor performance and perhaps even more disappointing considering the fact the Leeds fans had their home to themselves.

One of the Cardiff goalscorers from the game, Sean Morrison, has now described the odd feeling of scoring with absolutely none of his fans being there to celebrate with him.

The centre-back is quoted by Wales Online as stating:

“It was a shame we didn’t have any fans at the stadium, but hopefully they were happy and smiling wherever they were.

“It felt strange when I turned after scoring my goal. The stadium seemed to go silent. That felt strange.”

No Cardiff fans attended the game after a week long protest from fans over the tickets offered by Leeds for the game. Leeds offered Cardiff 1,000 tickets with an escorted travel system, which was swiftly rejected.

The next offer, of an unrestricted 500 was also rejected and therefore, no Cardiff fans were present.

So it made for a rather bizarre atmosphere at a fixture that is always one of the most heated in the Football League season.

Rather than two sets of fans going at each other in a pulsating fixture, it was just Leeds fans watching their team put in a fairly flat performance.
