Steve Evans on what he told his Leeds players at half time

Leeds United played out a goalless draw with Charlton Athletic in the Championship today.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has revealed on the club’s official Twitter page what he told his players during the half-time team talk today.

The Whites played out a goalless draw with Charlton Athletic away from home at The Valley in the Championship.

The performance of Leeds in the first half was far from impressive, but the players stepped up their game in the second 45 minutes.

Evans has revealed what he told his players at half time and has also claimed that the West Yorkshire outfit could have won 4-0.

“The first half, the game was intense without real quality," Evans told BBC Sport. "I was frustrated with the first 45. We didn't lack effort but I asked the group to work smart after the break.

"I thought the second half was absolutely stunning. 4-0 wouldn't have done the performance justice. It just didn't seem to go in.”

Over the course of the 90 minutes at The Valley, visitors Leeds had 56% of the possession, took 18 shots of which just three were on target, and earned eight corners.

The Whites are now 18th in the Championship table with 23 points from 20 matches, seven points above the relegation zone.

Leeds will return to action on Thursday evening when they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers away from home at Molineux in the league.
