Steve Evans has one question he wants to ask Leeds United supporters

Leeds United are currently stationed in 17th place in the Championship table.

Steve Evans has defended his Leeds United transfer record so far in the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Evans has made three additions at Elland Road so far - with Mustapha Carayol and Liam Bridcutt signing on loan from Middlesbrough and Sunderland, respectively, and Toumani Diagouraga signing on a permanent deal from Brentford.

And Evans believes that without his signings in the January transfer window arriving, Leeds could have been dragged back into a relegation fight.

“This is a question for the Leeds fans, of which I am one - but without Digaouraga, without Bridcutt and without Carayol coming in, do they think we would be a in a relegation fight come the end of the season?

“I have only brought three players in and have they improved us? The answer is by some distance.”

Evans is starting to come under pressure at Leeds, with the Yorkshire side making rather slow progress under his stewardship.

While the former Rotherham United manager has certainly guided the Whites away from relegation trouble, they still remain in the lower reaches of the Championship table.

There has also been a distinct lack of entertainment on display at Elland Road of late, with goals proving hard to come by.

Leeds have struggled going forward, and Evans’ failure to sign a striker in January has frustrated Whites supporters.

Leeds’ next match comes against Fulham later this evening at Elland Road, with Evans' side looking to pick up their first win in four matches.
