Steve Evans points out what Leeds lacked against Bolton

Leeds United won against Bolton Wanderers in the Championship on Saturday.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has admitted to BBC Sport (17:24) that his side lacked a bit of quality in the final third against Bolton Wanderers.

The West Yorkshire outfit returned to winning ways in the Championship with a 2-1 victory over Bolton at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.

Evans has conceded that Leeds could have done better in the final third, but he was pleased with the overall performance of his players.

"We lacked a bit of quality in the final third but as a group of men they've given this football club everything they had in their bodies today,” the Leeds head coach told BBC Sport (17:24).

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon, hosts Leeds had 54% of the possession, 13 shots of which just four were on target, and earned 12 corners.

The Whites had a pass accuracy of 78%, created 10 chances, put in 34 crosses, and attempted 16 tackles.

Leeds are 16th in the Championship table at the moment with 41 points from 34 matches. Evans’s side are nine points above the relegation zone and have a game in hand.

The West Yorkshire outfit will return to action on Tuesday evening when they take on Cardiff City away from home at the Cardiff City Stadium in the Championship.
