Hosting the Rugby World Cup seems to be affecting Championship outfit Leeds United.
The Whites’ home ground, Elland Road, hosted the Pool D game between Italy and Canada earlier today.
“It’s an honour (to host) but it’s also been a tough task for us,” Cellino told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“The last month has been hell, the works on the stadium have upset our strategy but I love my country and I was happy to host the Azzurri. The Championship calendar has been amended for the rugby.
“Leeds had to travel to Milton Keynes last week and we will play a second away game in a row tomorrow at Middlesborough.”
Leeds actually won away from home last weekend, defeating Milton Keynes Dons 2-1 at Stadium:mk in the Championship.
The Whites will be playing away from home tomorrow, taking on Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.
It will be a tough test for the Whites, as Boro are in good form at the moment and are on course for a top-two finish in the Championship this season.
Aitor Karanka’s side are second in the league table at the moment with 17 points from eight matches, four points behind leaders Brighton & Hove Albion with a game in hand.
Meanwhile, Leeds are currently 14th in the Championship table with 11 points from eight matches, four points behind sixth-place Burnley with a game in hand.
