Uwe Rosler explains how his Leeds United players have reacted following Ipswich Town loss

Leeds United are looking to recover from defeat by Ipswich when they take on MK Dons.

Speaking to the official Leeds website, Uwe Rosler has admitted that his players are not ‘lying on the floor crying’ following defeat at the hands of Ipswich Town.

The head coach said: “The days are coming thick and fast and we’re now looking at preparation for MK Dons. In the Championship you have to be quick to get over things and not analyse it too deep. We are not on the floor crying because we lost a game of football. We didn’t want to lose, we wanted to carry on our run by winning at home. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen but we’re all professionals.”

Leeds fell to their first loss of the season at the hands of Ipswich on Tuesday, succumbing to a 1-0 defeat at Elland Road.

It was a defeat which showed the frailties in Uwe Rosler’s team, and has raised doubts about his tactical set-up, coaching abilities, and the players brought to the club in the summer.

However, Rosler is not letting the defeat get to him, and the hard working attitude he is hoping to instil in his players has them already looking forward to the next game, rather than ‘lying on the floor crying’ because their undefeated start to the season has ended.

Leeds face MK Dons next, heading to Milton Keynes on Saturday afternoon looking to get back to form by winning their second game of the season. The Dons, promoted from League One last season, are currently sitting one point behind Leeds, although they have lost four games in relation to the one lost by the Whites.

Although an away fixture, many will expect Leeds to defeat their Championship opponents on Saturday, considering their respective statuses in league football, and another three points for the Yorkshire-based club would put them back in the top half of the table.
