Leeds hold nerve from the spot to defeat Burnley

Chris Wood, the ex-Leeds striker, scored for Burnley to put them level at 1-1 in the 89th minute before an exciting period of stoppage time brought two more goals.

Ladbrokes, who are the club's United Kingdom betting partner and sponsor a stand at Turf Moor, told BBC Sport: "They were very poorly conceived tweets which we have since deleted".

'We have contacted Ladbrokes and are awaiting a full response'.

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

The message was aimed at former Leeds United pair Charlie Taylor and Chris Wood who both swapped Elland Road for Turf Moor in the summer transfer window.

"It's a odd business, football", he said.

'Those two have been fantastic servants to Leeds, if I'm honest. "But Woody has done fantastically, walking on to our pitch and scoring, and again in the shootout".

Not only that, they have also progressed to the next round of the Carabao Cup and are just one win away from the quarter-finals after beating Burnley away from home on Tuesday.

Leeds made it through at the expense of the Premier League side, winning 5-3 on penalties after the game had ended 2-2 after extra-time, but Dyche did not want to point the finger of blame at Tarkowski.

"We were poor and they played very well", he said. He hit an incredible free kick into the top left and corner which sailed past the helpless grasp of former Preston North End keeper Andy Lonergan. The team sacked the Premier League winning manager, Claudio Ranieri about halfway through the season past year.

After the match finished in a 2-2 draw, the Whites went on to prevail on penalties.
