Watch: Both Managers Are Sent Off As All Hell Breaks Loose At The End Of Huddersfield V Leeds

Leeds Huddersfield

Sunday afternoon’s match between Championship promotion hopefuls Huddersfield and Leeds ended in chaos in scenes that saw both managers sent the stands.

With the scores tied at 1-1 in the closing stages, Huddersfield defender Michael Hefele struck in injury time to score the winner, leading to wild celebrations from manager David Wagner.

As Wagner was running, he collided with Leeds counterpart Garry Monk, leading to the two managers squaring off and sparking a touchline scrap that saw players and coaches from both sides piling in:

Wagner and Monk were both sent to the stands soon after – but of greater importance to the Terriers, the 2-1 victory and three points take them above their beaten opponents to fourth in the Championship table, nine points clear of Norwich City in seventh.

Monk, meanwhile, will be desperate to ensure heads don’t drop after suffering a second defeat in four games. Leeds have been enjoying their best season in years under the former Swansea manager and still look firmly on course to finish the campaign in one of the playoff spots.
