Marcelo Bielsa's side beat Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 at Elland Road on Saturday to establish a three-point cushion in the automatic promotion places, with four Championship games left.
The Blades kicked off two-and-a-half hours before Leeds and ultimately drew 1-1 with Millwall at Bramall Lane, but Chris Wilder's side play first again this Friday.
It's a similar story on Easter Monday when the Elland Road club kick off after United.
And former Leeds boss Redfearn reckons that repeatedly playing second gives the third-placed Blades an advantage.
He told BBC Radio Leeds: "I don't think it's fair, if I'm honest. Particularly for sides going for the same prize and it being such a big prize and what it means.
"Both sides should kick off at the same time. It is an advantage as if Sheffield United get a result it puts pressure on Leeds."
Redfearn definitely has a point and it might be a bit of an oversight by the English Football League. With so much at stake, fairness is of paramount importance and playing three straight Championship games after their rivals play could be considered a major disadvantage.
