Liam Cooper offers message to Leeds fans who need hope for next season

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United haven't won in four Championship games now.

Leeds United defender Liam Cooper has told BBC Radio Leeds that the fans need to stick with them after four games without a victory.

The Whites lost 1-0 away at Burnley on Saturday afternoon, meaning it's now just one point from a possible 12, having lost to Huddersfield Town, Rotherham United and Burnley, picking up that solitary point with a draw against Queens Park Rangers.

Manager Steve Evans is fighting for his future at Elland Road with his contract expiring at the end of the season, and fans have been left demoralised by the recent run of form as the season draw towards its close.

Fans will now be weighing up whether to buy season tickets after another chaotic and ultimately disappointing season at Elland Road, and some supporters need some sort of hope if they are to renew their season tickets.

Now, defender Liam Cooper has been asked by BBC Radio Leeds what he would say to those fans who are contemplating their season ticket renewals, and the centre back simply urged fans to continue supporting them even after a poor run of form.

Cooper admitted that the Leeds players are hurting right now, but they are trying everything they can to win games and finish as high up the table as they can, with just six league games left until the end of the season - something which could spark change at the club regarding Evans' future.

"Just stay behind us," said Cooper. "We know they're hurting at the minute, and we're hurting as well, but we're doing everything we can in our power to get a result and turn it around. We want to win as many games as possible, and as professionals, we want to finish as high up the league as possible, so we'll certainly be looking to do that," he added.
