Police interfered to decide on Burnley vs Leeds penalty shootout

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.

Liam Cooper has revealed that one of Leeds United's big aims this year was to get off to a good start as they began in a slow manner last term.

A spokesman for Burnley said: 'The club are aware of the problem.

"Maybe I got the changes wrong, but I was expecting a lot more from my players". Finally he was asked about the fitness of players Pontus Jansson, Liam Cooper and Matthew Pennington and he responded with "They will probably all be in (the squad)".

However, Williams said, the downgrade was "arguably questionable on the basis of recent economic and financial development". Many outsiders are skeptical that China will act to rein in credit growth at the expense of economic growth.

The teams remained deadlocked during extra time, but Leeds were able to hold their nerve and claim a 5-3 win on penalties after they buried all five attempts with Andy Lonergan's save from James Tarkowski's effort being the difference maker.

"Unbelievable", he said on BBC Radio Leeds, when asked how the first two months of the campaign have been for Leeds. That is where we're still shifting forward, that final moment of real quality.

The Poland worldwide was excellent in the middle of the park against the Premier League side as Leeds booked their place in the fourth round after a penalty shootout victory, and he may well now feature in many fans' lineup for the visit of the Tractor Boys at the weekend.

Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen, whose side can now harbour hopes of a cup run to go with maintaining top spot in the Sky Bet Championship, reserved a special word of praise for his goalkeeper.

The 26-year-old is enjoying the best year of his career having also won May's Giro d'Italia, his first Grand Tour success. Today was less surprising, I think I was one of the favourites but then it's even more hard to make it and stay calm.

Leeds eventually knocked Burnley out of the competition on penalties after the game finished 2-2. "My expectations of him were fulfilled".
