Leeds United fans have been angered by derby County defender Richard Keogh’s comments to Derbyshire Live after their play off semi-final.

Leeds beat Derby 1-0 at Pride Park, but the game was not without controversy.

Derby initially had a penalty given when Jayden Bogle was brought down in the box, but after consultation with the assistant referee, Leeds were given a free-kick instead.

 

And Keogh was not happy with the role that Leeds’ team played in getting the decision overturned.

"We get told that you shouldn't surround the referee. They had every player round the referee, which is why I stepped in,” the Derby man said.

"It's the referee's call and he changed his mind.

"When I asked him, he just said he had changed his mind.”

Leeds supporters have hit back at Keogh though, suggesting that he is being very hypocritical, as there were moments when Derby also put pressure on the referee.

Leeds scored their goal against Derby thanks to a well taken finish from Kemar Roofe.

Roofe was sent through on goal by Jack Harrison, and he dispatched the ball well from close range.

Leeds and Derby will meet again at Elland Road on Wednesday evening.
