Steve Evans explains what he wants from Leeds next season

The Leeds United boss is already looking ahead to the next campaign.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has been speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post about his hopes in the Championship next season.

Leeds have been inconsistent since Evans took charge, sometimes putting in performances that suggest they have turned a corner but more often than not following those games up with some lacklustre showings.

Their 2-1 victory against Bolton Wanderers at the weekend was a good reaction to their humiliating 4-0 defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion but they must now build on that when they travel to Cardiff City this evening.

Speaking ahead of that match, Evans suggested that he sees himself in charge for some time to come and is already planning for the next campaign, when he will be hoping to oversee a promotion charge.

“What I want, and what we need to do next season, is to be in a position where a team beating Leeds does teams at the top of the table a favour, rather than us doing favours for others, and I’m only interested in how we play," he told the YEP.

There is no doubt that with the right additions this summer Leeds can challenge for promotion, as they already possess some of the finest young players in the division and Evans showed he can spot a bargain when it comes to incoming transfers with Toumani Diagouraga and Liam Bridcutt excelling since their arrivals.
