Winger states that Leeds United star is Real Madrid bound

Fulham star Tom Cairney took to Twitter to vent his anger at Leeds United fans for allegedly abusing his family during the 1-1 draw between the two sides last night.

Having fallen behind to an early Tim Ream own goal, the Whites dominated large spells of the match and appeared to have equalised midway through the first half when Neeskens Kebano's shot hit the underside of the crossbar and seemingly bounced over the line.

Fulham remain without Lucas Piazon (broken jaw) and fellow forward Floyd Ayite for the visit of Leeds United, which could prove to be a crucial match for their play-off hopes.

"It's big damage for us, it's an important two points that we lost today, but we are going to push harder still than we did tonight".

"We are still fighting for second", said Roofe.

"And the thing is, the pressure is not on us, it's on everybody else. Every point really counts for them and we understand they'll go full-on because the closer they can get (to the top six) and the better results they have against the teams who are there, the more chance they have to go to the play-offs".

Leeds were then reduced to 10 men when Kalvin Phillips was shown a second yellow card one minute from time but the visitors looked home and hosed until Cairney's wonder strike in the 95th minute.

Presently both Huddersfield and Leeds find themselves in the playoff mix; while the Whites are fourth in the table with 65 points from 36 games, the Terriers are three points and a place ahead and also have a game in hand. It was a good point against a very good side. "They will probably deserve it".
