The Leeds United team bus was stuck in a nightmare traffic jam on Friday afternoon on their way down for the game at Reading this weekend.
The bus had been on the road for at least seven hours after a lorry had jack knifed on the M40 around 1pm.
The journey that would usually take around four hours was still ongoing after the lorry blocked two lanes after shedding its load, which meant the closure of four junction`s southbound meaning a huge diversion.
Members of the first team squad were due in Oxfordshire on Friday night to attend the Thames Valley on the road supporters club meeting but had to send their apologies through Peter Lorimer as they were still sat in traffic.
