Leeds United set unwanted club record in defeat against Brighton

Leeds Untied lost 2-1 at home to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Leeds Untied set an unwanted club record of 11 consecutive home matches without victory as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat at home to Championship table-toppers Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Whites have endured a terrible start to the campaign, winning just two of their 11 matches and overseeing six home games without victory.

Uwe Rosler was tasked with taking Leeds forward in the summer, yet the former Brentford manager has so far failed to implement his style to good effect and things are starting to look ominous.

After previous disappointments against the likes of Ipswich Town and Birmingham City, Elland Road reached boiling point on Saturday as Leeds suffered a third straight home defeat to Brighton.

The hosts had their chances after Liam Cooper cancelled out an early Brighton opener, but Bobby Zamora’s 89th minute winner sucked the life right out of the once feared club.

The last time Leeds tasted victory in the Championship on their own turf was way back in March, a 2-1 victory over Ipswich masterminded by now Rotherham United boss Neil Redfearn.

The Millers’ newly-appointed manager may not have been the most favourable man to guide Leeds over the coming years, yet his short tenure certainly looked brighter than the current proceedings.

President Massimo Cellino has a lot to answer for at Elland Road, with the decision to replace Redfearn with Rosler one which has already seen the likes of Alex Mowatt and Lewis Cook suffer.

Up next for the Yorkshire outfit are back-to-back away games at Fulham and Bolton Wanderers before they host Blackburn Rovers on a Thursday October 29.
