Gary Rowett explains the impression he got of Leeds fans on Saturday

Leeds United 2

The Birmingham City boss says he could hear Leeds supporters' frustration at Elland Road.

Birmingham City boss Gary Rowett says he got the impression Leeds United fans were a 'little bit frustrated' on Saturday afternoon, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Indeed, Rowett feels his side frustrated Leeds with a good performance and says he could hear the crowd getting restless as City left Elland Road with a 2-0 win at the weekend.

The result continued Birmingham's solid start to the season - and compounded the Whites' home woes.

Rowett is quoted as telling reporters: "We frustrated Leeds, you could hear the crowd getting a little bit frustrated and it was difficult for them to go anywhere. To limit a good Leeds side to probably one clear chance in the game, which Tomasz has made a magnificent save in the first half.

"Then to create quite a lot of great breaks and chances on goal, some of the positions we got in we really probably should have done better. But, to score two goals, I’m delighted and to keep another clean sheet."

Frustration has been a common theme for Leeds at Elland Road recently, of course, with no home win forthcoming for several months.

United are now just three points off the relegation zone, although it's early days. Things are unlikely to get any easier immediately after the international break, however, with Uwe Rosler's men facing table-toppers Brighton.

Birmingham, though, are flying under Rowett - and sit fourth in the Championship table, just four points behind Brighton.

Rowett made an immediate impression at Birmingham that has lasted ever since; Rosler will hope he can make a similar kind of impression with Leeds, just a few weeks later by comparison.
