Evans makes his Antenucci feelings clear, provides injury update on key duo

Mirco Antenucci

The Leeds boss has been discussing the 2-1 win over Bolton.

Leeds United boss Steve Evans says the club are 'really pleased' for Mirco Antenucci after his double against Bolton.

The pressure had mounted on Leeds and their manager after a very poor string of results but a 2-1 win over Bolton has alleviated some of it.

At Elland Road, a much-improved United side took all three points and Antenucci was responsible for both goals.

Evans feels the Italian worked hard and that both of his strikes were of 'great quality.'

Meanwhile, the Scot revealed that Liam Cooper was taken off with a hamstring issue. The Leeds defender was in form against Bolton but was taken off by Evans.

And Lewie Coyle's injury is currently being assessed, meaning Leeds aren't quite yet up to date on how serious his problem is.

Leeds travel to Cardiff City for their next Championship clash and will need to build on the Bolton win if this result is to mean anything going forward.
