Bristol City manager Lee Johnson has sent a message to supporters of the South West club on Twitter during the fixture uncertainty but the video has led to many Leeds United fans aiming digs at the Robins boss.
EFL fixtures have been suspended until the 30th of April at the least due to the Covid-19 pandemic, though in truth it remains uncertain what the full length of the delay will be.
Yesterday via the club’s official Twitter, Johnson sent a message to City fans to encourage them to stay home at the moment and to reassure them that his side are working hard to make sure when the season resumes they can hit the ground running and push for promotion.

The Robins boss has emerged as a bit of a villain amongst Leeds fans in recent years, who have not appreciated the odd jibe that he has thrown their way.

Many Whites supporters were quick to jump on the video, aiming digs at Johnson and suggesting that his sofa made him look particularly short.
