Steve Evans drops Leeds United team selection hint ahead of Cardiff City match

Leeds United take on Cardiff City on Tuesday night having failed to win any of their home matches so far this season.

Steve Evans has hinted on Leeds United’s official website that he will make changes to the side’s line-up for the match against Cardiff City on Tuesday evening.

The Whites were beaten 2-0 by Blackburn Rovers in their last outing, and Evans is keen to mix things up in an effort to try and spark his side into life.

Leeds have not won a match at Elland Road all season, with their poor home form a major contributing factor to their struggles so far.

And Evans said: “We’ve got to freshen it up, our performance on Thursday would have dictated that.

“The performance said we would make changes. We were all surprised and flabbergasted – put it however you want – to be two-down in six minutes. That’s hard for any team in world football (to come back from), nevermind a team with the home record that we have.

“We’ve got them in and we’ve kept them nice and fresh because we were aware that some of them have played quite a bit of football.”

Leeds face Cardiff knowing that if they fail to pick up a victory, they could slip into the relegation zone.

That would crown an awful start to their season, where very few things appear to have gone according to plan.

Leeds seemed to be building for the long-term with Uwe Rosler at the helm, but the German manger has already been dismissed and now Massimo Cellino, the club’s owner, has stated his desire to sell-up and move on.

It means that Leeds are moving into a period of uncertainty, and they will have to hope that all the off-the-field goings on do not distract the players from the matter at hand on the pitch – as the pressure is on them to start picking up results.
