Dean Smith has criticised the length of the grass at Elland Road, with the Brentford boss claiming that Leeds United’s grass was too long during yesterday’s contest in West Yorkshire.
Phil Hay from the Yorkshire Evening Post was delivering updates from Smith following yesterday’s game, with the Brentford boss particularly unhappy with the length of the grass at Elland Road.

Brentford were beaten 1-0 by Leeds yesterday, with Liam Cooper’s first-half header all that was between the two sides, who still hold slim play-off hopes heading into the final 12 fixtures of the season.

Yesterday’s result didn’t effect Leeds’ position in the Championship table, with Heckingbottom’s side still in 11th, but now just five points adrift of the top-six.
Likewise, Brentford were non-movers, with the Bees sitting 10th, but now just a single point above the Whites, with the race for the play-offs beginning to gather pace.
Smith’s comments come as a bit of a surprise, and perhaps reflect his disappointment at the result at Elland Road.
It was a tight contest, and Brentford will feel like they deserved something off the back of their first-half performance.
However, the grass will have been the same length for both sides yesterday, which should be given some consideration by Smith.
