Daniel Farke in 'furious' rage after what happened in Leeds United win v Plymouth

Daniel Farke was furious after an incident that happened in the second half of the Leeds United victory over Plymouth on Saturday (11 November), according to Graham Smyth.

The Yorkshire Evening Post journalist tweeted on Saturday that defender Sam Byram went down the tunnel “under his own steam”, leaving the Whites with no left-back as Pilgrims full-back Kaine Kesler-Hayden attacked that area of the pitch and fired an effort across the goal.

Junior Firpo then came on to replace Byram in what was his first appearance of the season in the 2-1 win over Argyle at Elland Road.


It was a lucky escape for Leeds as Kesler-Hayden exploited the space left by Byram’s absence, but he couldn’t guide his effort on target on 53 minutes.

That would have put Plymouth in with a chance of getting something out of the game with the majority of the second half still left to play.

That would’ve no doubt left Farke even angrier than he already was, but his side weren’t punished and they maintained their advantage following the miss.

The Whites earned that lead in the first half as they put the Argyle defence under all kinds of trouble, with Dan James and Joel Piroe getting on the scoresheet.

The most important thing for the West Yorkshire outfit is that they managed to secure the three points following another solid performance to keep them in the hunt for automatic promotion.
