Ian Holloway identifies where Steve Evans has already improved Leeds United

Leeds United have won back-to-back matches for the first time this campaign.

Ian Holloway told Sky Sports, during their coverage of Leeds United’s match against Huddersfield Town, that Steve Evans has already made improvements at the club.

Leeds have won back-to-back matches for the first team this season, having beaten Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town in their last two fixtures.

And Holloway has seen signs that the side are progressing under Evans’ leadership, with the former Queens Park Rangers boss paying particular tribute to the defensive work that they have done.

“I think that he’s done some work,” Holloway said. “The back-four is much, much better and the relationship with the midfield four [is also improved]. I didn’t see Huddersfield creating that much at all.”

Leeds beat Huddersfield 3-0, in what was arguably their best result of the campaign to date at the weekend.

The Whites have struggled to pick up wins over the campaign so far, but they deserved the three points against their Yorkshire rivals.

And Leeds will be hoping that the can continue to progress under Evans leadership, with the side now having two weeks without a competitive match, due to the international break.

That time away from competitive action gives Evans a chance to work on any weaknesses he has spotted on the training ground, with Leeds’ next match coming against Rotherham United on 21st November.
