A dog appeared to join in the celebrations as Leeds scored the only goal of the game against Wigan yesterday.

A picture from the match at the DW Stadium showed the dog appearing to bark as its owner held his arms up in the air in celebration after Alex Mowatt's 50th minute winner.

The pooch, which appears to be a Labrador, isn't wearing the usual high-vis jacket that would be worn by a guide dog. Therefore the owner would have had to have sneaked the pet past security - how he did so is anyone's guess.

Around 5,000 travelling fans were in attendance for the Championship match but the picture appears to show there were enough free seats to make room for the pet.
