A lot of Leeds United have responded to a tweet from LUFCMOT that shows United’s 3-2 win over Reading on the 16th of April 2016.

Who was sent off in the second leg of the playoff semi-final against Derby County?

The footage shows Michael Hector give the Royals the lead (0:01) before Toumani Diagouraga pulls the Whites level (0:11) and then Chris Wood just about squeezes a header over the line. (0:19)

Reading then equalise through a strike from Deniss Rakels (0:34) before Wood scores his second as he pounces on a long ball forward and a slip from a Reading defender to race through on goal and win the game for Leeds. (0:46)

This footage has drawn a reaction from these Leeds fans.

Do you remember this match?





What do we think?

Leeds finished in 13th that season, and Elland Road looks empty on the footage. It is a far cry from where they are now.

Under Marcelo Bielsa the club’s average home attendance is 35, 321 and they are currently top of the Championship seven points clear of Fulham in third place.

Though this was a good win for Leeds in 2016, we think it is good to see them doing so much better with Bielsa in charge.
