Tony Dorigo explains what he didn't like about Leeds' latest performance

Former Leeds United defender Tony Dorigo didn't hold back as he assessed his old side after their latest performance.

Former Leeds United defender Tony Dorigo told Radio Yorkshire what he didn’t enjoy about the team’s mid-week performance against Bristol City.

Leeds were looking good for their first Championship win of the season with a 2-0 lead, but conceded in the 89th and 95th minutes of the game to only walk away with a point.

Dorigo didn’t hold back as he laid into his old side for the way he feels they imploded over the second half of the game.

“You can’t sit back, what they need to do is keep playing, keep moving and they didn’t do that, they were sloppy and were hacking it clear and couldn’t control the ball,” he told Radio Yorkshire.

“Leeds just couldn’t control possession and were flashing it left and right – From Leeds’ point of view, it was hugely disappointing.”

A challenge for Rosler

Rosler is likely to be facing one of his biggest challenges since he arrived at the club.

He’s under pressure personally and also needs to try and find a way to take the pressure off of his players.

Their confidence and belief is likely to have been knocked by the performance out in the South West, but the manager needs to stress the positives of what the side did during that game.

Hopefully, the next time Leeds are in a position where they have worked hard to create a lead for themselves, the defence and team in general can show a little bit more resilience, which makes the side very difficult to beat.
