The English Football League has confirmed the penalty shoot-out in Leeds' Carabao Cup win at Burnley was taken in front of home supporters in the interests of crowd safety.

Former Elland Road pair Wood and Taylor faced an early reunion with Leeds fans during the tie at Turf Moor on Tuesday.

All White Chris Wood scored a goal against his old club but his Burnley side still went down to Leeds United in the League Cup this morning.

Burnley are seeking an explanation from their official betting partner Ladbrokes after the firm tweeted an offensive emoji aimed at players Chris Wood and Charlie Taylor.

In a statement, Ladbrokes said: "They were very poorly conceived tweets which we have since deleted. It was only meant to be a bit of fun but failed in that regard".


"We would also like to apologise to any fans that took offence".

Sky Bet Championship side Leeds secured a place in the last-16 following a dramatic 5-3 win on spot-kicks. 20-odd million they've made for a club (in transfer fees) and they get slaughtered.

New Zealand worldwide Wood scored an 89th minute penalty against his former club in a thrilling end to the game, with Pablo Hernandez restoring Leeds' lead from the spot in stoppage time, only for Robbie Brady to cancel dramatically equalise with a stunning free kick.

Boyhood Leeds fan Taylor destroyed his relationship with numerous supporters after former manager Garry Monk revealed that he refused to play in the final match of last season with a move to the Premier League pending.
