Toumani Diagouraga sends message to Leeds fans after FA Cup exit

Leeds United suffered a 1-0 defeat to Watford in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Leeds United midfielder Toumani Diagouraga has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to his side’s defeat to Watford on Saturday afternoon.

The West Yorkshire outfit suffered a 1-0 defeat to Watford away from home at Vicarage Road in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Scott Wootton's own goal in the 53rd minute proved to be the difference between two sides.

Diagouraga has expressed his disappointment at the final result on Twitter and has thanked the Leeds fans for their support.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Vicarage Road, hosts Watford had 59% of the possession, took 15 shots of which only one was on target, and earned 10 corners.

Visitors Leeds had 41% of the possession, took six shots of which just one was on target, and earned four corners.

Leeds will return to action on Tuesday evening when they take on Fulham at Elland Road in the Championship.

Steve Evans’s side are 11 points above the relegation zone and 16 points behind Sheffield Wednesday, who are currently sixth and occupy the final playoff spot.
