With Cardiff calling - Leeds can do without allegations their players trashed the Deepdale dressing room after the play-off semi-final win.
It is alleged obscenities were written on the dressing room walls in marker pen, posters stuck up and wash basins wrecked following Leeds' 2-0 victory on the night and 3-1 aggregate win.
A statement from Leeds: 'Following publication of a story alleging Leeds United players trashed a dressing room at Preston, Leeds United have requested photographs to be sent to them.
'We would welcome an opportunity to inspect the photographs referred to and upon receipt of them will hold our own internal investigation into the matter.'
North End chief executive Steve Jackson: 'There was some damage to the sinks, vandalism to the cubicle doors and walls, writing on the tiles and some posters were erected on the walls, which is a minor point but nevertheless it is pre-meditated.
'There's not a lot that can happen. We decided it was best not to bring it to the attention of the media because it could look like sour grapes and that's not the sort of people we are.
'It would be nice to just wish Leeds well in the play-offs and hopefully they'll attain Premiership status, but no doubt they've got the burden of this that they'll have to deal with.
'Our thoughts are to let sleeping dogs lie with this one. An internal investigation is probably an appropriate course of action to be taken by them.
'The photographs are all over the press but if they want us to supply photographs of the graffiti, we're happy to get those sent across.'
