Leeds boss brushes off confrontation with Brighton bench

Simon Grayson has played down a confrontation between the backroom staff of Leeds and Brighton during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Elland Road. Robert Snodgrass' late leveller earned Leeds a point and sparked a melee between the dugouts after the hosts celebrated in front of the Brighton's bench.

Grayson said: "There was a bit of passion being thrown around at the end of the game. Glynn (Snodin) got carried away slightly. I think their assistant manager refused to shake his hand."

Grayson also hit out at the tackle on Max Gradel that earned Brighton defender Adam Virgo a straight red card in the 81st minute.

He added: "It looked a horrendous tackle. Max tried to jump out of the way or it could have caused a serious injury."
