Leeds United trio apologise on Twitter for poor performances

Leeds United

Leeds United's players have spoken out after the defeat to Brighton.

Leeds United boss Steve Evans did not address the media after the club's dismal away defeat to Brighton, but his players have spoken out.

Toumani Diagouraga and Mustapha Carayol both commented on Twitter after the 4-0 loss, offering their apologies, with the new addition from Brentford promising to make up for it.

Lee Erwin, a late substitute, also expressed his regret at the manner of the loss.

Leeds were awful in defeat, conceding all four goals before half time, and any fans leaving early could not have been blamed for choosing to do so.

In an attacking sense the Whites were clueless, having 17 shots at goal with only one landing on target from a Lewis Cook effort in the second half.

Neither Diagouraga nor Carayol were particularly individually at fault for any of the goals, but along with the rest of the team they bear their share of responsibility for the disappointing loss.

Leeds are in 17th position in the table, Cellino's unlucky number, and head coach Steve Evans' promise of a promotion challenge next season appears a long distance away from reach.
