Carlisle United defender Peter Murphy has made himself a target for Leeds United fans as he suggests that the Elland Road side show “arrogance.”
Murphy’s comments come just 2 days ahead of the playoff semi-final first leg, and with Gary McAllister claiming he was “content” with his promotion matchup, Leeds in general were destined to get someone’s back up, again!
Murphy said: “Leeds will probably say they're happy to be playing anybody because they don't think they should be in this league.
“Hopefully that little bit of arrogance will work in our favour and if we do get promoted it will be all the better.
In a rare positive moment, he added:
“Leeds have a very good squad and we know we'll have to step up our game. You expect to play good sides in the play-offs.
It soon wore off:
“But that's where Leeds are disrespecting us a little bit, saying they are happy to play us.
“According to Leeds, everything has gone against them this season - they shouldn't be in this league, the 15 points deduction and so on.
“If Leeds are such a big club, and if we are the underdogs, that's the way it's got to be. Everyone is expecting them to win and there's no pressure on us.”
With a bit of luck, Brunton Park will see Carlisle finished off before the second 90 minutes even have to be played.
