Leeds United head coach Steve Evans comments on Chris Wood and Sol Bamba.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that striker Chris Wood and defender Sol Bamba need to do more.

“There’s no-one in British football who didn’t think Chris Wood was a fantastic signing for the football club,” Evans told The Yorkshire Evening Post.

“The big fella needs to give us a lot more than he’s doing. Our captain (Bamba) needs to give us a lot more and I thought he did in the second half against Blackburn.”

Wood joined Leeds from Premier League outfit Leicester City in the summer transfer window.

The New Zealand international striker has scored five goals and created 14 chances in 13 Championship appearances so far this season.

The 23-year-old has a pass accuracy of 63% and a shot accuracy of 29%, and has won 42 headers, one dribble and four tackles.

Bamba played for Leeds on loan from Palermo during the second half of last season and joined the West Yorkshire outfit on a permanent contract in the summer.

The 30-year-old central defender has created three chances in 14 league matches so far this season.

The Ivory Coast international has a pass accuracy of 79% and a shot accuracy of 17%, and has won 54 headers, 11 dribbles and 28 dribbles.
