Leeds United head coach Steve Evans laments his side’s lack of consistency.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that his side have lacked consistency this season.

Evans has also suggested that for Leeds to avoid the same situation during the 2016-17 campaign, they need to sign better players in the summer transfer window.

“Against the teams higher up the league, we’ve been a bit unlucky at times,” the Scotsman told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “We probably deserved to beat Derby in December and we had enough chances to beat Middlesbrough recently.

“That’s what I mean when I say that on our day we can compete with these sides. Our problem’s been consistency and that really comes down to the fact that the squad needs strengthening.”

One of Leeds’s main problems this season has been consistency, or the lack of it.

The West Yorkshire outfit have failed to put together a run of positive result which would see them launch a genuine challenge for the playoffs.

Evans’s side have given some of the bigger teams in the Championship a run for their money, but they have also dropped points against teams such as Milton Keynes Dons, Charlton Athletic and Fulham.

The Whites returned to winning ways in the Championship at the weekend when they got the better of Bolton Wanderers 2-1 at Elland Road.

Leeds will be looking to build on that victory this evening by picking up all three points from the league game against Cardiff City away from home at the Cardiff City Stadium.
