Sol Bamba makes a frank admission about Wednesday wondergoal, calls it sloppy

Leeds United AFC Stadium Distant

The Leeds defender wasn't happy with his contribution, despite many feeling Sheffield Wednesday had scored a superb goal.

Sol Bamba says he should have done better during Marco Matias's opener for Sheffield Wednesday at Leeds United on Saturday afternoon, according to BBC Radio Leeds.

Indeed, Wednesday took the lead at Elland Road with a fabulous strike from Matias. But Bamba believes the overall goal was 'sloppy.'

The 30-year-old wasn't critical of Matias's role in rifling the ball into the back of the net but says Leeds - himself included, should have defended better.

And the centre-back also feels Leeds should have beaten Sheffield Wednesday over the course of the 90 minutes.

He told BBC Radio Leeds: "We conceded a sloppy goal, to be honest. We should have done better and got three points at home.

"The finish is great but we should have done better at the start. I thought it was off, I spoke to the ref. But I looked after and it wasn't, I should have stayed with the man, to be honest."

Remarkably, Leeds have now drawn four out of four Championship games. But so frequent has a draw become for Uwe Rosler's men, there isn't really anything remarkable about it at all.

The encouraging aspect for United on this occasion was that it wasn't them giving up a lead. After Sheffield Wednesday's sloppy... wondergoal, Leeds hit back and took the game to the visitors.

Just like last season, there was no eventual winner of this Yorkshire derby - and Leeds are still waiting for their first competitive win under Rosler after the 1-1 stalemate.
