Sol Bamba was found wanting as Leeds United lost to Brighton and Hove Albion.
Leeds United produced an woeful display against Brighton - and their captain was at the heart of it.
Brighton left the Whites shell shocked at half time, already 4-0 up after an impressive display helped by some calamitous Leeds defending.
Leeds were forced into a defensive re-think with Giuseppe Bellusci suspended, and this unsettled their backline.
Scott Wootton was brought back in at right-back, with Lewie Coyle moved out to right wing.
Bamba was caught out for two of the Brighton goals, while Wootton gave away a penalty.
Little is expected from Wootton after his own goal cost the club in the FA Cup, but more is required of Leeds captain.
Bamba has been out of the side in recent weeks but played well in the match against Fulham last week. This was a backwards step.
He saved an almost certain fifth with a tackle late in the second half but by that time it was too little too late.
Fans were brutally critical of his performance. Here is a look at the reaction via Twitter...
The youngsters should be able look at the experienced players for guidance. They won't be looking at Bamba, horror show. #lufc— Nathan Brien (@nath_brien) February 29, 2016
Sol Bamba can't mark a register! Stone Age football down at Brighton tonight #lufc— Matt Gibson (@MattGibson148) February 29, 2016
I'm sure Bamba is a lovely bloke but that's our skipper there. Couldn't organise a piss up in the brewery, let alone our defence. #lufc— Jennifer (@jenbarlufc) February 29, 2016
Come back bellusci. Get that donkey Bamba out of the team #lufc— Paul turner (@Pault19788) February 29, 2016
Sol Bamba. A one man case for Scott Wootton's continued selection. If he's a natural leader, no wonder we're screwed.— Adam J (@Ken_DeMange) February 29, 2016
