‘Most stonewall penalty in history’ – Leeds fans can’t believe Patrick Bamford was denied a spot-kick against Brentford

Leeds were left bewildered when referee Keith Stroud waved away a seemingly-blatant penalty during their must-win clash with Brentford.

The Whites are looking to close the three-point gap to second-place Sheffield United, who beat Hull 3-0 earlier in the day.

And following a bright start, they looked certain to be given a golden opportunity from the spot after Julian Jeanvier clattered into Leeds striker Patrick Bamford.

But despite a clear, unobstructed view of the incident – Stroud was not interested and waved away Bamford’s appeal.
