(Video) Leeds United were denied a clear penalty after a blatant handball from a Hull player last night

Leeds United returned to the top of the Championship table once again as a fine low strike from Tyler Roberts did the job against a struggling Hull City side.

Marcelo Bielsa has got the Peacocks playing some classy football since taking over in the summer and more of the same continued against the Tigers with Leeds being the dominant side for most parts of the game. The scoreline could have been much worse for the home team but for some poor finishing from Ezgjan Alioski and Barry Douglas in the first half.

While the travelling supporters seemed pretty pleased with their side’s performance, they were far from happy with the officiating during the game as a Hull player was clearly seen spreading his arm to stop a goal-bound shot from Phillips.

Check out the incident here:

The incident has understandably irked the Leeds support and many took to Twitter to voice their opinion against the poor decision. With the incident coming after a string of poor calls during the defeat to Birmingham City few days ago, some fans are beginning to wonder about a possible bias being developed against their team.

  1. it’s amazing how a team that is top of the table, always have over 60% possession,have so many touches in the opposition box, so many shots in each game and in 13 matches so far this season Leeds are still not awarded a single penalty while 2 were awarded against them , against Stoke and Preston in the Cup. Also in every game contrary to what usually happens to the big teams 50/50 decisions are all given against Leeds. Leeds should protest with the EFL about all this and there are video images proving all this
