ANGRY scenes marked the end of a fiercely-contested West Yorkshire derby after Huddersfield Town edged out promotion rivals Leeds United 2-1.

Rival bosses Garry Monk and David Wagner were sent to the stand in stoppage time after Michael Hefele’s dramatic 90th-minute winner sparked furious scenes on the touchline.

Town head coach Wagner raced down the touch line in celebration but clashed with opposite number Monk as he came back past the Leeds bench.

Players from both sides then got involved in the melee as referee Simon Hooper booked Leeds captain Liam Bridcutt and defender Pontus Jansson along with Elias Kachunga for Town.

Town went ahead through sub Izzy Brown with his first touch after coming on before Chris Wood equalised with his 21st of the season.
