Leeds United legend Eddie Gray says Burnley loss one of best performances of season

Leeds legend Eddie Gray was impressed with the club's performance in the loss to Burnley.

Leeds United made it four games without a win as they lost to Burnley at the weekend, but a former star saw reason to be positive.

Eddie Gray told LUTV that he felt the team were the better side at Turf Moor, a game they lost 1-0.

They were defeated by a first minute goal conceded to Scott Arfield, and could not bounce back and make their attacking intent count.

Gray also insisted that the lack of a killer instinct in the final third of the pitch was ultimately their undoing, and was reason to be worried.

He said: "It was a disappointing result but probably one of the best performances of the season.

"We played similar, in fact we played better today in general terms than we did at Blackburn.... until we got into the last third.

"There were a couple of big chances, a big centre forward miss, but in the general decision making in last third was not there.

"We were the team that dominated the game, we were the team that tried to play. Burnley were a bit disappointing. That's got to go down to us as well, but when you get on top of teams like that you've got to take advantage."

Decent performances unfortunately count for little in a division as competitive in the Championship if Leeds cannot get the results they need, and the table does not look great for them.

They sit in 15th position, the same placing they finished last season, 20 points behind Sheffield Wednesday who sit in the last play-off spot.
