Leeds legend Eddie Gray laments the team's passive performances at Elland Road

Leeds United

The Whites are struggling badly on home soil at present.

Leeds United's quest to end their barren run at Elland Road will have to wait another fortnight, following their 2-0 defeat against Birmingham City over the weekend.

Uwe Rosler's team were thoroughly outmatched by the Blues over 90 minutes, in what is largely being seen as Leeds' most underwhelming performance at their home since the German boss took charge.

Speaking to LUTV after the loss, Leeds legend and former manager Eddie Gray didn't hold back in his assessment of the team's struggles at Elland Road; insisting that it needs to be corrected sooner rather than later.

"They've got to get over it quickly," Gray said. "Because regardless of who, or the quality of the opposition that are coming here now, we're always giving them a leg up and a chance."

The Yorkshire outfit return against league leaders Brighton and Hove Albion following the international break, where they will be hoping, against the odds, that their run of seven months without a victory at home can finally be put to bed.

Chris Hughton's side are the only undefeated team remaining in the Championship at present, and are looking very good value to be one of the league's most feared promotion contenders.

A win for them would ensure they maintain their lead on Middlesbrough in first place, while another slip-up on Leeds' part would leave them in an increasingly precarious situation at the bottom end of the table.
