Having taken all three points off West Bromwich Albion, Leeds United were looking to make it back to back victories as we travelled to The Den earlier today to face Millwall.
It was unfortunately a case of Deja Vu, as the hosts were awarded a very dodgy penalty 16 minutes into the game and they took full advantage to open the scoring from the spot. Gaetano Berardi gave away the penalty and the referee showed him a straight red card for his efforts and they did double that advantage in the 45th minute.
Ezgjan Alioski had got himself on the scoresheet within a minute of the restart, but with that being our only effort on target across the 90 minutes, the three points slip away once again.
Speaking to the BBC following the full time whistle being blown, manager Marcelo Bielsa said of our performance on the day.
“The result should be different. Each time we lose always I find few logical reasons to justify it. For me, it’s always a shame to explain why we lost. I think with 10 men we were better than them. Always, we are trying to explain why what we want doesn’t happen. It impacts the tolerance of the people who are listening.”
