Here are some of the views of United’s fans on social media....

Neil Summers - ‏@neilyboy1919 - Lots of debate about the penalty decision whilst I think there was contact did O’Kane make the player go down probably not EOK was clearly pulling out of challenge so for me it was a soft penalty #lufc #mot #alaw #weareleeds

Daniel Stewart‏ - @dnstewart67) - All I’m reading is Sheffield fans saying it should have been even points but happy for the three. Looks like bad discipline cost us. Again. And again. And again...#lufc

LUFCARMY‏- @LUFCARMY - Shocking statistic. Leeds are yet to win a game in 2018. That’s 41 days and 6 games without a win. Our last win was Boxing Day. BOXING DAY. #lufc #mot #alaw

Ian Taylor‏ - @RupertTrousers - Dear Mr Heckingbottom, can you please sign Lasogga and ditch Roofe and Alioski. Cheers #lufc

Luke McManus‏ - @Manners93 - Gutted about today. You can still believe play-offs are achievable but the fact is, we’re not good enough. You look at teams like Villa and Derby, we’re no where near. How many players would get into there team? Maybe 3/4? We’re a team full of very average players. #LUFC

topman65 - ‏@baldyman1965 - more pace and power needed for me especially down the channels don’t work the channels at all #lufc

matt sanghera - ‏@MattSanghera - If Lassoga gets the right supply he will be a beast. Sign him up in the summer #LUFC

Nick Giddings - ‏@NickGiddy - I’ve been saying it all season... OKane!!!!!!!!! Terrible performance....... not for for purpose.. not strong and not in the right positions ! #lufc #okane

Alex Farquhar‏ - @AlexFarquhar8 - I’m sorry but O’Kane needs to be dropped he loses his head, gives away a penalty and lets the whole team down after a solid second half display. No captain of mine, neither is coops discipline issue there still. #LUFC #MOT

Lewy Pearce‏ - @LewyPearce - Caught up on the game...Lassoga has been unfairly criticised. Quality striker and clearly loving Leeds! Roofe and Okane nowhere near good enough and shouldn’t even make the bench. Alioski needs a rest, Pablo a baller as always and why is Klich out on loan? Deserved a point. #lufc

martin mullen - ‏@martinjmullen - We lost wood, bartley, taylor and green and replaced them all with worse players. 10th in the league about what we deserve with current squad. Orta picks the signings.. #lufc
