Leeds fans set for protest


Leeds United fans are set to stage a major walk-out at Elland Road today in protest at controversial owner Massimo Cellino's continued interference in team affairs.

The home support will exit en-masse in the 17th minute of the Championship club's game against Hull City.

The have chosen 17 as Cellino, who is currently fighting a second disqualification by the Football League, has said that he has a deep superstition of the number.

This latest protest follows revelations that Cellino forced a tactical change on manager Steve Evans after visiting the dressing room during last weekend's 1-0 defeat to QPR at Loftus Road.

The game was poised at 0-0 at the break, with Charlie Austin heading the winner for the home side just before the hour mark.

Cellino revealed his actions in an interview with the Daily Mail, saying: "Didn't work anyway. We lost the game."

He is not expected to attend today's game.
