Leeds United have picked up more red cards than any other team in the Championship this season.

Leeds United fans are pleased to hear Paul Heckinbottom’s suggestion that he will get tough on any players who step out of line.

Leeds have picked up four red cards in their last five matches, with the Whites now sat at rock bottom of the Championship’s fair play table.

Leeds have picked up more red cards than any other side in the second tier this season.

And Heckingbottom has suggested that Leeds’ indiscipline is a problem which he needs to solve.

“Discipline is a big problem,” he said to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“All for aggression but you have to have control. It will change. Sendings off through lack of control we've got to address. We've done things already.”

Heckingbottom’s comments are very different to Thomas Christiansen’s quotes on the matter.

Christiansen was often accused of being too soft on the team.

And he said, just a matter of weeks ago, to the YEP: “I’m responsible for the team so I will gladly take my responsibilities but it’s difficult to show them how not to take a red card. I cannot be in their minds in the moment that they go to the ground and we are talking about players with experience.”

Leeds fans are delighted to see a change of stance from their new manager, and expressed their pleasure upon hearing the comments on Twitter.

Heckingbottom will take charge of Leeds for the first time this weekend, when his side take on Sheffield United.
