Leeds United player ratings against Blackburn: Awful all-round, but Chris Wood the worst

Leeds United lost 2-0 to Blackburn Rovers at Elland Road on Thursday evening.

Marco Silvestri - 6

Despite being ironically jeered by Leeds United supporters every time he caught the ball, due to his poor form of late, there wasn't much he could have done with either of Blackburn Rovers' goals. 

Sam Byram - 5

Partly at fault for the first goal of the evening, and he never managed to show his attacking talents. 

Sol Bamba - 5

Should have done better with the cross that led to Craig Conway's opener for Blackburn. The Leeds defender also picked up a cheap booking for dissent. 

Liam Cooper - 5

Dived in as Blackburn scored their second goal of the evening, and never looked particularly assured against a dangerous front-two. 

Gaetano Berardi - 6

Has been one of Leeds' most consistent players this season, and his form continued on Thursday evening. He put in a solid display. 

Lewis Cook - 6

Played out of position on the left-wing for much of the contest, but he still managed to show more attacking threat than many of his Leeds teammates. 

Luke Murphy - 5

Couldn't get involved in the match, and some of his touches were sloppy. It was obvious that he hasn't played much football this season. 

Tom Adeyemi - 5

The Leeds loanee hit the post early on, but he never managed to get involved after that. 

Stuart Dallas - 5

His Elland Road struggles continued, as the winger couldn't break through the Blackburn defence. He visibly became more and more frustrated as the match progressed.

Mirco Antenucci - 6

Leeds' most lively attacker, the Italian had the Whites' best chance, but he miscued his volley. He still put in a decent performance, though.

Chris Wood - 4

Up against two giant centre-backs, but he didn't pose many problems and looked way off the pace. Carried absolutely no goal threat. 

Leeds' substitutes: 

Jordan Botaka - 6

Showed signs of promise, after coming on as a half-time substitute. 

Souleymane Doukara - 5

Had 20 minutes to impress, after scoring for Leeds' development side in midweek, but constantly gave the ball away when he came on. 

Alex Mowatt also was brought on, but too late to be rated.
