Leeds versus Milwall was dubbed as one of those intense encounters of the Championship however certain sections of the travelling support made sure of it to be remembered for all the wrong reasons.
While on pitch affairs didn’t disappoint, providing a nail-biting finish, Millwall fans certainly did.
The Lions didn’t hesitate to remind Leeds of the sad episode in Turkey which saw two of their fans stabbed before their UEFA Cup semifinal against Galatasaray in 2000.
A similar incident had taken place in 2013 when the Leeds Supporters’ Trust registered a complaint against Millwall fans for indecorous chants aimed at the victims of the tragedy in Istanbul yet once again mutual respect was disbanded when it came to claiming bragging rights.
Milwall came away with a 4-3 victory from Elland Road but not before immersing themselves with such a disgraceful attempt at downplaying their opponents.
Check out the video of the vile chanting below –
