Steve Evans: Leeds home form has been an 'absolute disgrace' in 2015

Elland Road pitchside

Steve Evans is desperate to change Leeds' fortunes at Elland Road.

Steve Evans has told the Leeds United Twitter account that the club's home form in 2015 has been an 'absolute disgrace', and wants to end the pain against Blackburn Rovers on Thursday night.

The Whites have now had two games under new manager Evans, both away from home - and both ended in 1-1 draws against Fulham and Bolton Wanderers.

Evans, who replaced Uwe Rosler as Leeds boss around a week ago, now faces his first home game on Thursday night, with Blackburn Rovers making the visit to Elland Road.

Blackburn haven't been in fine form either this season, but Leeds' biggest problem this season has been their home form, with no wins yet this season, and haven't even won at Elland Road since the 4th of March against Ipswich Town.

That's now over seven months without a win at home, and with Evans set for his first home game, he has issued a rallying cry to fans by saying he wants the stadium bouncing against Rovers - but admits the club's home form has been 'an absolute disgrace'.

Blackburn lost 1-0 to fierce rivals Burnley on Saturday, and manager Gary Bowyer will be looking for a better result on Thursday night.

Yet with Evans keen to make his Leeds side more aggressive, the Elland Road crowd should be rocking - and that should spur the players on to finally record a home win this season.
