Leeds United are sitting outside of the automatic places on goal difference after their win against Blackburn Rovers over the weekend.

Leeds United supporters have admitted on Twitter that they do agree with Tony Mowbray that the officials over the weekend weren't at their best at Elland Road.

Blackburn Rovers suffered a 2-1 defeat against automatic chasers Leeds, with striker Patrick Bamford ending his goal drought by opening the scoring from the penalty spot. 

 

There's no doubt that Leeds were the better team on the day, but Mowbray was left unimpressed with the performance of the officials as he thinks that it didn't help Blackburn's cause. 

Certain sections of Leeds fans admitted that Mowbray is right in what he is saying and that the refereeing was a little generous towards them.

But others did point out that Leeds haven't had the rub of the green when it has come to officiating this season, as they pointed towards that penalty against Milwall.

Added with that, some thought that managers cannot be hypocrites in accepting soft decisions that go for them and then moaning about those that go against them. 

In terms of quality, there's no doubt that Leeds were streets ahead of Mowbray's side, who conceded five minutes after Bamford had put them ahead when Jack Harrison continued his good form in front of goal. 

That result meant that Mowbray's side are sitting in the bottom half of the Championship table, whilst Leeds are marching on and are level on points with second-placed Preston North End.
