Prutton suggests it will take time for Leeds to progress under Rosler

Former Leeds United player David Prutton says it's too early to fairly judge his old club.

Ex-Leeds United player David Prutton told Radio Yorkshire why he’s not worried about the club’s start to the season under manager Uwe Rosler.

Leeds have drawn every game they have played in competitive action this season and are still searching for a first win under their new manager.

Prutton has called for patience and has suggested that it’s a progressive process that the players are going through, as they look to adjust under a new manager.

“It’s early season, it would be great to be top of the league and setting the pace, but it’s a slow, steady progression and hopefully it’s a case of being patient – It’s tweaking, not making wholesale changes to the way they play, just adding different parts to the armoury,” he told Radio Yorkshire.

Far too early to judge

Prutton has a point because it’s unfair to make cast iron judgements of Leeds and Rosler with only a handful of games to go on.

Leeds may not have a won a game, but they also haven’t been beaten which suggests there is a real fighting mentality in the side at the moment to take something from every game.

Hopefully that determination can now be backed up by a little potency in attack and the team can start climbing the league table and progressing in positive fashion.

The real test will come in how the side reacts and how Massimo Cellino reacts of the club tastes defeat before that much needed win arrives.
