Steve Evans makes bold promise to Leeds fans, discusses new signings

Steve Evans has promised to produce winning football at Leeds United.

Leeds United boss Steve Evans has told BBC Radio Leeds that he needs a few new signings to make the club 'decent' - but promised winning football.

Evans was downbeat last Thursday as Leeds lost 2-0 at home to Blackburn Rovers, but his side came roaring back on Tuesday night with a 1-0 win over Cardiff City.

Alex Mowatt's stunning long-range strike gave Leeds their first win at Elland Road since March, ending a remarkable eight month wait for a home victory.

Now, new manager Evans - who replaced Uwe Rosler as Leeds boss just over two weeks ago - is looking to kick on having grabbed his first win as Whites boss at the fourth time of asking.

Evans was understandably delighted with the result, and spoke to BBC Radio Leeds about how he can build on the victory and get Leeds moving forward again.

The Scot promised to bring winning football to Elland Road, just as he did with former clubs Rotherham United and Crawley Town, but begged supporters to give him time and allow him the opportunity to bring in some new signings in order to improve his squad.

"We will produce winning football here," said Evans. "Just give us a little bit of time, to get two or three players that I think are good players in the Championship, add to the bunch here and then we'll be decent," he added.

Leeds fans will be hoping that Evans' promise comes true, but additions before the loan deadline and during the January transfer window are vital for Evans, who is looking to finally drag Leeds away from the dreaded Championship relegation zone.
