Leeds players Liam Cooper and Lewis Walters Tweet after 2-0 loss

Leeds United 2

The captain and the youngster were solemn on the social network.

Leeds United's good form came to an end last night, as they were defeated comfortably by a Brighton side at the Amex Arena.

After three wins and clean sheets on the bounce they struggled to keep up that momentum against The Seagulls.

The team missed the absent Sam Byram. The right-back by-trade has been filling in at right wing recently, performing very well in the last month or so. But he was injured and sorely missed.

Striker Steve Morison also picked up a knock and could not come out for much of the second half whilst Giuseppe Bellusci was missed at the back.

His replacement was Liam Cooper, who started the game alongside Sol Bamba, but he was not as polished as the Italian has been recently.

After the game the central defender was one of the few Leeds players to take to Twitter and face the defeat. He sent this post out to fans last night - stressing the players would be doing all they can to make up for the defeat when they face Watford at Elland Road on Saturday.

He was not alone in Tweeting. Young forward Lewis Walters also took to his account to Tweet this post.

The youngster has recently returned from a knee injury and has been training with the team before matches - as Neil Redfearn prepares him for life in the first-team of a club like Leeds.

He will be hoping to give Redfearn a wildcard option from the bench going forward.
