Ian Holloway's response when asked if he fears for Steve Evans' future at Leeds United

Elland Road East Stand

Leeds United were beaten 4-0 by Brighton & Hove Albion last night.

Ian Holloway has told Sky Sports that he has worried about Steve Evans ever since he took the Leeds United job.

According to the Daily Mirror, Evans' job is now under threat after they lost 4-0 to Brighton & Hove Albion yesterday evening.

Chairman Massimo Cellino left the AMEX Stadium at half-time, sparking rumours that Evans was set to lose his job.

“I’ve worried ever since he has been there,” Holloway said, when asked whether he feared for Evans.

“Tonight, he [Cellino} wasn’t there for the second half. That’s the nightmare you get as a manager - the chairman goes home at 4-0 down. But Steve has to get on with it, he’s big and tough enough.”

Leeds’ performance at the AMEX Stadium was nothing short of disastrous, as they showed a lack of fight throughout.

The Whites went behind early on when Tomer Hemed scored from the penalty spot, before Liam Cooper scored an own-goal moments later.

Things then went from bad to worse, as Hemed smashed in a third, before Lewis Dunk completed the scoring in the 38th minute.

The defeat means that Leeds have now won just one of their last 11 matches, and they have slipped down the Championship table.

Leeds are currently in 17th place in the standings, and they are only nine points away from the drop zone.
