FA looking into Canos incident after missile thrown at Brentford ace from Leeds crowd


T

he FA are looking into an incident in Brentford’s draw with Leeds that saw midfielder Sergi Canos struck by an object thrown from the crowd.

The Bees drew 2-2 at Elland Road on Sunday and Canos was hit by an object after celebrating scoring his side’s second goal in the 61st minute.

The Spaniard made gestures towards the Leeds fans before an object, believed to be a bottle, struck him.

Canos hit the ground and Brentford players turned to the crowd to voice their displeasure. The FA are aware and looking into the matter.

The incident was part of a lively game at Elland Road that saw Brentford narrowly miss out on claiming all three points.

Leeds took the lead in the first-half through Tyler Roberts, but the Bees went ahead after the break thanks to goals from Shandon Baptiste and Canos.

They had looked set to claim the win, but in the 95th minute substitute Patrick Bamford marked his return from injury by scoring a late equaliser.

“We know it can happen in football but I can’t praise the players enough,” said Brentford boss Thomas Frank. “They gave everything.”
