The man in question was a homeless Leeds United fan called Andy.

And Marcelo Bielsa's men laid on a treat for the group of friend - romping to a 3-1 win with a barnstorming performance.

And now fellow Leeds fans have praised the the three friends after Connor posted a picture of the group on Twitter.

Along with the picture, he wrote: "Went to Leeds game yesterday and we had a spare ticket so we took a homeless Leeds fan and bought him a few pints what football is all about."

Leeds fans were quick to make Connor and his friends know just what a good deed their selfless act was.

Actor and runner Dean Smith tweeted: "Nice one lads. Really nice gesture. You have to take him every week now we’ve started like that."

Susan Smith said: "Just brilliant, fantastic gesture lads #MOT"

Tony Cox added: "Well done fellas. Nice gesture. If only there were more like you."
