As Leeds clung on to their lead, Bielsa was forced to substitute his substitute Tyler Roberts with the defender Luke Ayling. Bilic added: “We definitely deserved to score one goal. I am very proud of our performance, especially in the second half.”
Leeds goalkeeper Casilla played even though the FA are investigating a claim from Charlton that he racially abused their on-loan West Brom player Jonathan Leko on Saturday. Bielsa said: “I couldn’t give an opinion about this because it is for the authorities but we reject any act of racism.”
