In the run-up to their game against Charlton Athletic on Wednesday, Leeds urged their fans to watch the game from the safety of their own homes due to the coronavirus pandemic and its associated social restrictions.

After being criticised for having their players appear to celebrate with fans, the West Yorkshire side claim that they were told an appearance from the stars would help disperse the crowd.

"Following consultation with the Safety Advisory Group and council, Leeds United arranged for a bus to be parked outside the East Stand reception as a contingency to assist dispersal should a crowd congregate at Elland Road, despite a month-long campaign from the club and supporter groups to encourage supporters to stay at home," a club statement read.

"The safety group believed that a brief appearance from the players with the Championship trophy would help to signal an end to proceedings, encouraging fans to head home safely.

"In challenging circumstances, fan safety has always been our priority."
