Some Leeds United fans believe Derby County star Tom Lawrence deserves a ban

Leeds United feel the authorities have not been fair to their cause in recent months.

Leeds United fans have become fairly upset with the FA and EFL in recent weeks. Many feel the club is being treated harshly when it comes to discipline. Not just with the Spygate scandal. Leeds fans were left aghast when Pontus Jansson was banned for post-match comments about a referee whilst Brentford midfielder Sergi Canos got away with a headbutt attempt.

Then came the Aston Villa melee. Patrick Bamford was banned for two games in retrospect after taking a dive to get Anwar El Ghazi sent off. Leeds fans had no complaints with that. However, Conor Hourihane was not punished for seemingly punching Mateusz Klich in the gut.

Essentially, Leeds fans feel they are not getting the rub of the green from officials and the FA.

It has even led to some conspiracy theories and talk of an agenda against the Elland Road outfit.

Those continued yesterday. Derby County secured their place in the play-offs with an impressive 3-1 win over West Brom. However, an argument has been made that Welsh international Tom Lawrence may have dived to allow Harry Wilson to score his penalty.

It is a tough one to see. On some occasions, it appears former Leeds defender Kyle Bartley makes contact, others it is not so clear. Either way, the Derby man goes down easily.

It led to many a Leeds fan debating the incident on Twitter. Some feel, no ban will be another sign of an agenda considering the fact Leeds now face Derby in the play-offs…


However, one Leeds fan injected a sense of realism into the debate…

Either way, Leeds play-off clash with Derby should be a tasty affair. Leeds fans will hope they overcome all their obstacles to book a date with destiny at Wembley.
