Evans explains just how long Leeds have been rehearsing Bamba's set-piece goal

The Leeds boss has been discussing the Ivorian's goal.

Steve Evans says he has been working on scoring from set-pieces ever since his arrival at Leeds United, according to BBC Radio Leeds.

Indeed, Sol Bamba scored a rare goal from a corner against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday afternoon and Evans admits it came about through a lot of hard work on the training round.

The Scot told the BBC: "Since we've come in the door, we've worked on it desperately hard. We chuckled that one has gone to the trees during training. It [the goal] was great to see."

Much was made of this being Leeds' first goal from a corner in years on Saturday and it's clearly a good weapon to have in a club's armoury if they can get it right.

Bamba's goal, alongside Mirco Antenucci's finish, has put United into 12th place in the Championship table and there is the very realistic chance of four wins in a row during Leeds' next clash.

That comes at home, where United host Huddersfield Town for the first of two Yorkshire derbies. After that, Leeds come up against local rivals Rotherham United - and former manager Neil Warnock.
