Leeds out of the Johnstons Paint thingy

It seems the only reason that Leeds are any good is they are so wound up about that points penalty, that’s what we take from their defeat in the Johnston’s Paint thingy after tepid performance in the FA Cup at the weekend. But there is more to it than that, as the Yorkshire Post reported.

“Goals from Ben Furtcher and former York City striker Andy Bishop were enough to condemn Dennis Wise’s side to a first defeat on home turf in eight months but the first-half double from the Bury duo told only half the story of a thrilling night.

Leeds, who had taken the lead through Leon Constantine after just eight minutes, had to play more than half the game with only 10 men after Filipe Da Costa was sent off on his full debut for a needless kick at a prone opponent.”

Sounds nasty, who’s his manager again? Oh right, of course. But Leeds fans won’t care too much.

Bury now stand just three games from a possible trip to Wembley in the final, though as disappointed as United were at the final whistle the overriding priority this season remains promotion.

And, let’s be honest. That’s a forgone conclusion.
