Leeds United fans have been left frustrated in their attempts to watch the team's pre-season friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Leeds advertised that the match would be streamed free-to-view live on the club's football channel LUFC TV.

However, the club's website crashed as viewers tuned in to watch the first half of the game in Schwaz.

It meant many fans missed Luke Ayling's second minute goal that put Leeds in front.

@_jackos: “Bit of a disaster this @andrearadri, we're used to @leedsunitedtv being worse than the pirates, site obviously cant cope with load #lufc”

@Jbennett360 “I've given up. A website that can't handle load, a service that cannot function correctly and an online store were you have to queue. #lufc”

@WayneWellwood: “LUTV is free now so wasn't rocket science that the sheer numbers logging in would be much greater, so disappointing. #lufc

Leeds United apologised to supporters.

The official Leeds United Twitter account said: "The broadcaster in Austria providing LUTV with today's feed is experiencing technical issues. We apologise for this inconvenience."

Leeds fans also missed out on seeing the Whites play in Monday evening's hastily-arranged friendly against Bursaspor in Italy.

The match had been arranged behind-closed-doors but the Turkish club leaked details to their fans.

Some fans were able to find coverage of the game as one Bursaspor fan streamed the match on social media site Periscope using his mobile phone.
