Former Leeds United player Terry Yorath feels the side have moved on from last season.

Former Leeds United midfielder Terry Yorath told Radio Yorkshire that he feels his old team’s performance against Burnley last weekend was a vast improvement on the football the team played last season.

Leeds eventually finished 15th in the Championship under former manager Neil Redfearn and Yorath was encouraged by what he saw during Uwe Rosler’s first competitive match in charge of the team.

“It was a vast improvement on the football we played last season and I and the other 20,000 have to be happy with that – You could have thought it’s a difficult start to the season, especially with the expectations of the fans, but I think we’ve come out of it well,” he told Radio Yorkshire.

Encouraging signs

There were a number of encouraging signs for Leeds to take forward from the match against Burnley, with the players seeming to have already adjusted to the way that Rosler wants them to play.

Leeds played a good brand of possession based, quick football which was difficult at times for Burnley to deal with.

It was encouraging to see the new signings fitting into the team quickly and easily, with the side generally much more attractive to watch.

The one thing that Rosler will want to see improve over the coming weeks is the defensive discipline, with the back four unable to see out the three points last weekend.

Leeds need to be able to protect positive position against the more difficult teams they will face in the Championship, if they want to have any sniff of promotion this season.
