Leeds United fans on Twitter have hit back at Mark Warburton after he seemingly suggested that QPR could have got something from their 2-0 defeat at Elland Road on Saturday.

Tyler Roberts and Jack Harrison scored for Leeds on either side of the half, as Marcelo Bielsa's men picked up a pretty comfortable three points.

 

But Warburton feels that had Jordan Hugill scored his headed chance in the second half, when the game was still 1-0, then it could have been a different game, and Elland Road would have gone 'quiet', as quoted by The Yorkshire Evening Post.

But the Leeds faithful took exception to his comments because they think that the London club didn't really create much from the game, other than through Eze.

They feel that Warburton needs to admit that his team were second best on the day, as they feel that it is sour grapes from the R's manager.

QPR just pipped Leeds to the possession stats during that game, as Leeds had 18 efforts on goal to QPR's six. The away team only forced Casilla to save one shot, as posted by BBC Sport.

At the time, Leeds ended up moving to the top of the Championship table, but they have since dropped into second place because Preston beat Charlton on Sunday.

Leeds can now move out of the automatic places on Monday night that's if fourth-placed West Brom can pick up all three points against Stoke City.
