Leeds United coach Daniel Farke was disappointed at the refereeing on Friday night against Rotherham United.

The Whites got off to a fast start, taking the lead within five minutes as Summerville got on the end of a Rutter one-two pass before curling it past the keeper for his seventh goal of the campaign. Rotherham equalized just before half time as Hakeem Odofin hit a strike into the bottom left corner.

There were two main controversial events during the game; Leeds had a goal ruled out for offside and were then denied a penalty after a horrific challenge on Daniel James. These decisions left Daniel Farke furious as he made it known during the post match press conference:

“I was far away, but my view was clear Morrison was 30cm from the ground on James. Fluent attack. Championship, no VAR and it’s always the same. Away game. At home you probably get this all day. Nobody shouting for this away from home. Have to accept it at this level.

Decisions for the home team. Linesman keen to see Bamford is two inches offside.”

The German coach also accepted that Leeds should have been more clinical and finished off the game in the second half, before Rotherham got back into the game:

“Second half credit to Rotherham. Good side. They were very organised. We struggled for 20/25 minutes to create enough chances. Made subs. Formation. Created more than enough to win the game Struijk needs to score with the header. Need a penalty for James. Have to accept Bamford was offside.“
