Steve Evans says he's frustrated with criticism of Leeds United

Leeds United have lost their last two matches in the Championship.

Leeds United boss Steve Evans has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that the criticism he and his side have received is underserved.

Leeds have frustrated their supporters after losing against Huddersfield Town and Rotherham United in their last two outings.

However, Evans insists that their last two appearances should not make people forget about the strong run of form his side were in.

"One bad half and one mistake at Rotherham seems to have obliterated the three really good results," he said. "No-one wants to talk about that. People are entitled to opinions, I’d never deny that, and I’m willing to accept criticism but it’s not so normal at Leeds. Criticism level tend to be overly high."

Prior to their latest two losses, Leeds had put together a run of three successive victories.

It was the first time that Leeds had won three games in a row since February 2015, but even that spell of good form does not appear to have convinced everyone that Evans is the right man to take the Yorkshire side forward.

According to the Daily Mail, Evans is set to be sacked by Massimo Cellino at the end of the season, with Leeds set to take a new direction.

The 53-year-old boss has insisted that he still wants to stay at Leeds, though, and he wants to get the side back on track to prove he is the right man for the job.

Leeds’ next match comes against Queens Park Rangers later this evening.
