Leeds United Supporters ‘Shushed’ By Sky Sports

Only four of Leeds' 15 games have been on at 3pm this season

Sky Sports have reportedly been implementing technology during Leeds United games which ‘dampens’ the chants of the club's supporters.

Leeds are no strangers to having their games screened on Sky Sports due to the large audiences they can attract, but many fans have become angered at the irregular kick-off times - only 4 of their 15 Championship games this season have taken place at 3pm, with 11 available to watch on Sky - and have subsequently been voicing their displeasure towards the broadcaster during televised matches.

The Daily Mail reports that some Leeds fans shouted ‘Sky TV is f****** s***’ during last weekend’s clash at home to Nottingham Forest, chants which were hushed through Sky Sports' use of dampening techniques.

Leeds will be on television AGAIN on Sunday when they travel to Wigan in the 1.30pm kick-off, so keep your ears peeled for chants…

Should Championship leaders Sheffield United fail to come away from Nottingham Forest with three points on the Saturday, then Leeds know that a win at Wigan the following day would propel the Yorkshire club back up to top spot after 16 matches, with Marcelo Bielsa's men currently boasting a superior goal difference to the likes of Sheff Utd, Middlesbrough and Norwich.

The following weekend Leeds’ trip to promotion rivals West Brom will be screened live by the Sky Sports cameras, before a rare 3pm match against Bristol City on 24th November.

2nd-placed Leeds remain the 4/1 favourites to lift the title, while they can be backed at 5/4 to win promotion.
