Steve Evans' blunt assessment of Leeds defeat, sends firm message to players

Elland Road

The Leeds head coach has been reacting to his side's 4-1 loss to Huddersfield.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans pulled no punches with his blunt assessment of a 4-1 loss to Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.

Stuart Dallas gave the hosts the lead but a shocking second-half performance ended up seeing United lose by three goals.

It was the worst way possible to end a run of three straight wins and Evans sent a firm warning to his players after the game.

Indeed, the Scot admitted that Leeds' defending wasn't good enough and that the fans have been left disappointed by their display.

He continued to emphasise his displeasure with Leeds' defending to the press after full-time...

All the signs were pointing in the right direction for Leeds after three great wins.

But a 4-1 defeat at home will match the frustration many felt after United's 4-0 defeat at Brighton several weeks ago.

If there's one thing Leeds need to sort out next season (there are many), it's their consistency. It's a real Jekyll and Hyde story right now.
