Sol Bamba makes admission about Leeds United's season so far

Sol Bamba claims that Leeds United have regressed over the season so far.

Leeds United centre-back Sol Bamba has told LUTV that his side will be working on their defensive organisation over the international break.

Leeds have two weeks off to work on any issues that have arisen over their start to the season, and Uwe Rosler has a lot to improve. 

The Whites have won just one of their past five fixtures, and Bamba believes that the side need to become more resilient if they are to start climbing the Championship table. 

"I think teams are finding us too easy to play against," he said. "At the start of the season, we were very difficult to beat, we were very organised. At the moment, for some reason, we're not. At home we have to be more resilient, and we have to get a better shape.

"We are good when we have the ball, but we need to get better when we don't have the ball. Hopefully we are going to work on this and get that right."

As a result of their poor form, the international break has come at a good time for Leeds and Rosler will know that he will need to work hard on the training ground over the next fortnight.

Leeds may not be going all out for promotion this term, but with Massimo Cellino as chairman there is always pressure on the manager to pick up results. 

The Whites have managed some quality performances this term - and a win over Derby County was a particular highlight - but they have not been consistent. 

Leeds' have still only been victorious in two league games all campaign, and their recent slump has left them in 16th place in the Championship table.
