It was far from simple, but Leeds United’s hosting of Hull City on Tuesday evening turned into another good night for fans.

A 2-0 victory finally arrived courtesy of an own goal from de Wijs and another Ezgjan Alioski effort as he made it two from two inside of the final 20 minutes of the tie. It’s fair to say Leeds didn’t have it all their own way, and manager Marcelo Bielsa was suitably respectful in his after game comments as the visitors improved after the break and grew into the game, but few could begrudge us victory.

However, it seems some Hull fans did and preferred instead to focus on a non-event involving striker Patrick Bamford. Now, Bamford did collide with their goalkeeper, George Long, during the build-up to the goal but it was accidental at best and plenty would argue it was the goalkeeper who caused the collision as it doesn’t appear Bamford was even looking in his direction.

That, unfortunately, didn’t stop one time Leeds loanee, Eric Lichaj, from seemingly misreading the whole situation.

Unsurprisingly, fans were quick to defend our player, with plenty of images doing the rounds that gave him every possible defence to the accusation.

The less said about some of the comments claiming Bamford then fell on him, the better really.
