Leeds United legend Eddie Gray laid into the club’s current players on LUTV, suggesting they need to do more to achieve positive results in games where they are on top.
Leeds are on a difficult run of form, where they haven’t managed to win a game since they defeat Fulham in the Championship last month.
That’s a run of six games and Gray feels the team’s key players need to ignore the things going on away from the pitch and focus on ending the season well.
“It’s not good enough when you’re not getting results in games where you should be winning comfortably,” said Gray.
“There’s a lot been happening at the football club, which doesn’t help, but you’ve still got to be professional enough as a player to go out there and play and do your job.”
It’s a difficult situation for the squad because they have seen someone suspended from his position in Steve Thompson, who they worked well with, and there has been no official clarification over Neil Redfearn’s long term position.
That uncertainty moves into a very young side and there is a real need at the moment for the more experienced players to step up and make a difference.
However, there have been spells in recent games where the side has been playing effectively, but lacking a little bit of discipline to get over the winning line.
Leeds have two games left; against Sheffield Wednesday this weekend and then at home against Rotherham.
The local rivalry involved this weekend will make the game more intense and it will also be interesting to see how Leeds play if Rotherham need a result on the final day of the season.
