Now that the dust has settled on the 3-2 victory against Millwall, Leeds United fans will be hoping to forget yet another terrible officiating display.
Millwall goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski was clearly time-wasting throughout the first half, and the ball went out in the build-up to the Lions’ penalty – just two in a catalogue of errors by Darren England.
It wasn’t the first time the Whites have been on the end of numerous refereeing mistakes. Look at the penalty against Fulham and Queens Park Rangers’ winner recently.

They were just two of the massive mistakes made, with England even giving the away side a goal-kick despite a clear save from Bialkowski.
Leeds Live recently revealed that Tony Harrington will take charge of the clash on Saturday. The referee has been to Elland Road once this season – the 3-3 draw with Cardiff.
That one was also full of controversy, Harrington giving the Whites a penalty and also sending off Cardiff skipper Sean Morrison for a challenge on Eddie Nketiah.
Leeds fans will be hoping for a much quieter affair on Saturday, and hope that lightning doesn’t strike again from the shocking display of England on Tuesday evening.
Harrington isn’t shy to dish out cards though and has already awarded three red cards this season. He has given 12 penalties, averaging one every two matches – so don’t be expecting a game without controversy on Saturday.
