Leeds are being investigated by the FA after Brentford’s Sergi Canos and Bryan Mbeumo appeared to be struck by objects thrown from the home end at Elland Road.

Referee David Coote included the incident, which occurred during Brentford’s 2-2 draw with Leeds on Sunday, in his match report.

The FA have studied Coote’s report and have launched a probe into the behaviour of the Leeds fans.

Canos was celebrating scoring to put Brentford 2-1 up with Mbeumo in a corner in front of the home fans when what looked like at least one plastic bottle was aimed at them.

Canos fell to the ground, holding the back of his head, and Mbeumo also rubbed his head.

Leeds could be punished by the FA if their investigation concludes they did not do enough to prevent their fans’ misbehaviour.

Brentford boss Thomas Frank claimed he was unsure what happened with Canos and said: “I have not spoken to him, I don’t know what happened.”

There was a volatile atmosphere at Elland Road on Sunday and director of football Victor Orta was involved in a furious bust-up with a Leeds fan.

Orta then had to be restrained within the directors’ box as he attempted to get to the fan after the final whistle.

Leeds also had to apologise for the behaviour of some of their fans after last Tuesday’s win over Crystal Palace when they taunted the Eagles’ on-loan Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher with homophobic chants.

Bamford’s goal on his return after 11 weeks out with an ankle problem helped him put his injury hell behind him and afterwards he opened up on the depths of his frustration.

The England striker was initially only supposed to be out for four weeks when he damaged his ankle against Newcastle on September 17.

But he was sidelined for nearly three months and he says it was hard to accept when it kept dragging on.

“It’s been frustrating because it’s one of those injuries that can drag on,” he said. “There’s no actual specific time scale, it’s all down to the individual.

“It was frustrating because I set my sights on coming back each match for the last six matches, so yeah, it was a frustrating period, but now I am out of it, it seems it has gone fast.”
