Port Vale boss Michael Brown accuses Samuel Saiz of spitting at Joe Davis

Port Vale boss Michael Brown claims that Leeds United midfielder Samuel Saiz spat in Joe Davis's face during his side's 4-1 defeat at Elland Road in the EFL Cup.

Port Vale boss Michael Brown has accused Leeds United midfielder Samuel Saiz of spitting in the face of one of his players during his side's 4-1 defeat at Elland Road in the EFL Cup.

Saiz, signed for a reported £3m from Huesca in July, marked his first appearance in England with a hat-trick, but Brown claims that the Spaniard spat at Vale defender Joe Davis shortly before half time.

"I think the boys lost focus a little bit," Brown, who spent three seasons at Leeds before departing in 2014, told Sky Sports News.

"The guy who scored three goals spits in Joe Davis's face in the 40th minute and it is very hard to take.

"So that certainly knocked us off balance. We asked their staff to take him off, they ignored that and he scored three goals. That is why it was getting a bit heated down in the technical area."

The Valiants also had defender Gavin Gunning sent off in the closing stages of the first-round clash after his foul on Leeds substitute Ezgjan Alioski earned him a second yellow card.
