Steve Evans makes an encouraging comment about Leeds players

Leeds United are struggling for wins in the Championship at the moment.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that there is no lack of effort from his players.

The West Yorkshire outfit’s recent results have been disappointing, and the performances have been less than impressive.

The Whites were hammered 4-1 by Huddersfield Town at Elland Road in the Championship last month.

Then at the start of April, Leeds went down 2-1 to Rotherham United away from home at the AESSEAL New York Stadium, and on Tuesday evening they played out a 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers.

Evans believes that the players are fully committed, but has admitted that there are individual errors being made.

“I don’t think there’s one player in the dressing room who doesn’t remain focused on trying to win games or get in the team,” the Leeds head coach told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “It’s never about effort or commitment. It’s just about doing things a little bit better.

“I’ve said to the players that it’s basic errors which are costing this team a lot of points. It’s different individuals week in, week out and I’m included in that. We all have to be better.”

Evans’s comments will be encouraging to the Leeds fans, as they make it clear that the players are committed to the cause.

The Whites will not get relegated and will not finish in the top six of the Championship this campaign.

Leeds are likely to finish in mid-table and their season is virtually over, but it appears that the players are putting in the effort.

If the Whites stop making individual mistakes, then they should be able to put together a run of positive results.
