Eddie Gray sends a message to despondent Rosler after German's frank admission

The Leeds icon has offered some support to the head coach after a 2-0 defeat at home to Birmingham City.

Eddie Gray has offered up a telling message of support to Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler after the Yorkshire side's 2-0 loss to Birmingham City at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon, according to the club's official Youtube channel.

Indeed, Rosler made the frank admission after the loss that it is the most disappointed he has been since taking over at Leeds.

But Gray offered him words of encouragement and seems convinced the German is working as hard as he can to get his side firing.

Leeds are without a home win in several months now but the former midfielder and manager portrays the sense that Rosler will continue to get backing as he is going the right way about things.

Gray told Rosler on LUTV: "You've more or less said what we've got to improve. Thanks for speaking to us. I know, from personal experience, it's no good coming up to talk after getting beaten at home.

"But keep plodding away and keep working hard and it will come."

Previously, when asked if it was the most disappointed he has been during his brief time so far at Elland Road, Rosler said: "Yes, because we wanted to give our supporters a win. We are desperate to give them a win. We are doing everything we can to get the team firing. But, for some reason, at the moment, teams don't need to work very hard against us to score."

It's interesting to see what the fans think of the current state of affairs at Elland Road.

Leeds fans are notoriously vociferous and to see their side either lose or draw every week will be frustrating to no end.

Rosler has promised to change things up, though. Does he deserve all the blame for the poor current home form or are things moving in the right direction enough to suggest things will come good in the end?
