The Baggies and the Whites lock horns at Elland Road next month but some West Brom fans aren't happy about what they have to pay to get in.

A number of West Bromwich Albion fans have taken to Twitter to criticise Leeds United for the price of away tickets for the Championship clash between the two sides at Elland Road next month.

The Whites host the Baggies on Tuesday 1 October in a clash between two sides fighting for promotion, and with Marcelo Bielsa's side third in the table and Slaven Bilic's charges fourth ahead of matchday seven, it's anticipated to be a hotly contested game.

 

On their official website, West Brom confirmed that they have been handed an allocation of 1,400 for the Elland Road fixture, which is also set to be broadcast on Sky Sports, and adult ticket prices are priced at £39.

The price, particularly for a game on television, has irked quite a few Albion supporters, who made their feelings clear on social media:

West Brom are unbeaten so far in the Championship this season, having won three and drawn three games so far, while Leeds have won four, drawn one and lost one of their six games so far.

The Baggies have Fulham, Huddersfield and QPR up next before the Whites clash, while Bielsa's boys face Barnsley, Derby and Charlton before welcoming WBA to Elland Road.
