Leeds and Huddersfield managers sent off in freakish touchline scuffle

HUDDERSFIELD ENGLAND- FEBRUARY 02 Huddersfield manager David Wagner during the Sky Bet Championship match between Huddersfield Town and Brighton & Hove Albion at Galpharm Stadium

Leeds United manager Garry Monk has criticised Huddersfield Town counterpart David Wagner for his actions following the Terriers' late victor in their Championship clash at the John Smith's Stadium this afternoon.

Defender Michael Hefele scored a 90th-minute victor for Town against their Championship play-off rivals, sparking trouble on the sidelines before the final whistle.

Things got a bit feisty after the goal as Wagner had ran half the pitch to celebrate with his players and on the return to his technical area he clashed with Monk.

"I think with the way I play, English football will suit me because it is more direct and easier for my style, I am very quick and have a lot of drive".

"Monk also spoke about what happened at the end of the game, saying: "I hold myself in a certain way and I have humility and respect". This culture is different in Germany.

"Then I went to speak to him".

"It isn't something that I usually do [but] if there was a moment where this could happen, then it was this moment".

Town head coach Wagner raced down the touchline in celebration but clashed with opposite number Monk as he came back past the Leeds bench.

Of the result, he added: "I am not going to make excuses but we are still on the right path".

Isaiah Brown put the home team in the lead in the 27th minute, but Chris Wood restored parity for the visitors on 35 minutes.

"Nothing changes for us and we stay focused".
