VIDEO: The three errors which hurt Leeds United against Cardiff

Leeds United Crest

Three errors which could have been avoided cost Leeds United against Cardiff yesterday.

Leeds United were well beaten 3-1 away at Cardiff City yesterday as Neil Redfearn saw his side struggle in his first game as the club’s new coach.

Leeds were always on the back foot during the game, as the Welsh side bagged three goals, which will give Redfearn plenty to mull over heading into the game against Charlton this Tuesday.

The first came from a looping long ball, which saw two Leeds players beaten to the ball before Bruno Manga headed into the corner with a lack of strength present in the Whites defence.

The second goal came when Federico Macheda was given too much room on the edge of the box, with both Leeds United centre backs failing to step forward and challenge him, which gave him time and space to get a shot away.

Kenwyne Jones bagged the third goal from another looping long ball, with a lack of communication between Giuseppe Bellusci and Marco Silvestri presenting the striker with possibly the easiest chance he’ll have all season.

All three goals could have been avoided and all three give Redfearn something to mull over during the next couple of days.
