Burnley sponsor apologises after tweet taunting striker Chris Wood

Chris Wood

And not only had Leeds beaten a team from a higher division, the team had made nine changes to the side that had just lost to Millwall in the Championship, as Leeds head coach Thomas Christiansen chose to field an nearly "second string" side in the Cup, just like he did against Newport County and Port Vale.

"The club are aware of the problem".

Ladbroke's are Burnley's official United Kingdom betting partner, but took to Twitter to taunt their players.

All White Chris Wood scored a goal against his old club but his Burnley side still went down to Leeds United in the League Cup this morning.

After the game, the official Ladbroke's Twitter account tweeted an obscene message directed at the former Leeds players.

Leeds supporters were left perplexed after 120 minutes of their Carabao Cup clash with Burnley on Tuesday night, when a police officer seemingly advised the referee against allowing the penalty shootout to take place at the away supporters' end of Turf Moor.

Leeds then themselves had a penalty in injury-time and Pablo Hernandez dispatched it, but Burnley still had time to level things up through Robbie Brady. It was only meant to be a bit of fun but failed, and we have already apologised to Burnley FC. "Twenty-odd million they've made for a club (in transfer fees) and they get slaughtered".

Leeds' Hadi Sacko scored the opener in the 80th minute, before Chris Wood equalised with an 89th-minute penalty, taking the game to extra time.

"I remember my first season at Leeds I was booed for three or four months of the season, I had to overcome that", Wood said, as quoted by the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.
