LUFC View from the opposition manager

Bristol City manager Derek McKinnes felt the referee got one right and one wrong as his side were reduced to nine men against Leeds United.

McKinnes accepted that James Wilson probably deserved his red card in the first half when he pulled back Ross McCormack when he was the last man. McKinnes felt play-acting from the Leeds players swayed the referee when he sent off Yannick Bolassie for two yellow cards in the space of two minutes at the start of the second half.

Speaking on the Bristol City official website , McKinnes said, "James Wilson got a slight touch and we got ourselves in a poor position. He was possibly the last man and I can understand that one.

With Yannick, the same player was involved in both bookings. For the first one, Yannick hasn`t touched him.

"The second one was a coming together. It was really harsh. We can`t point the finger at the referee, but once you go down to nine men, it is damage limitation to be honest.

"There`s a lot of frustration there, because I felt there was a lot of rolling about today from a few Leeds players making a meal of things. There were a lot were challenges than that which went unpunished."


Leeds had already taken the lead through Robert Snodgrass before Wilson was giving his marching orders.

Late goals from Ross McCormack and Luciano Becchio secured a comfortable 3-0 win for Leeds against the nine men of Bristol.

The two sending offs make it five players have been sent off against Leeds in the last five championship games.
