Referee Scott Duncan, who cleared coins from the pitch before handing them to the fourth official on the touchline, notified the FA in his match report, prompting the governing body to ask Leeds for an explanation.

The Elland Road club were already subject to an on-going investigation after objects were thrown from the same area of the ground, the South Stand, at Millwall players during Leeds’ 3-2 win on March 30.

United are likely to face a financial punishment if the FA decides to bring disciplinary sanctions.
