Steve Evans singles out three Leeds stars who should have done better

The Leeds head coach has been discussing the 2-0 friendly win over Wycombe.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans singled out Casper Sloth, Souleymane Doukara and Jordan Botaka as players who should have done better against Wycombe on Friday night, according to the club's official Twitter account.

The Yorkshire club beat Wycombe 2-0 thanks to goals from Lee Erwin and Sam Byram.

But Evans told the Leeds site: "We didn’t do enough in the final third tonight. That’s not the strikers.

"I remember Casper missing a chance. Doukara missed a chance. Jordan should do better, as well."

Weaknesses in the final third have been a common syndrome for Leeds so far this season, with a lack of service and creativity in behind the strikers a particular theme.

It was one of the biggest problems facing Uwe Rosler but Evans already appears to be on the case. United's 1-0 win over Cardiff City wasn't a solution as it took a long-range strike from Alex Mowatt to seal all three points.

Things looked better against Huddersfield, though, as it was being clinical that won the game for Leeds despite conceding large spells of possession.

Against Wycombe, Evans clearly didn't think he saw enough in the final third. He'll hope for more against Rotherham in the Championship - and he'll have plenty of time between now and then to work on that in training.
