Steve Evans picks out the three Leeds United results which still frustrate him

Leeds United have managed to pick up 10 points from their last 12 matches.

Leeds United boss Steve Evans has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he is still frustrated with his side’s failure to beat Burnley, Queens Park Rangers and Rotherham United.

Leeds have been in impressive form of late, and they have climbed up to 12th place in the Championship table.

The Whites have taken 10 points from the last 12 available to them, but Evans is still not entirely satisfied.

The 53-year-old boss believes that Leeds should have collected even more points - with three results standing out as being particularly frustrating.

“I’m delighted with 10 points from 12,” Evans said. “Any manager would be. But I still get frustrated looking back at Burnley, QPR and Rotherham because those are games we should have taken three points from, based on performance.

“I don’t think there’s any game we’ve won where any neutral would say anything other than we deserved to win. It’s not annoying. I think frustrating would be the word.”

After Leeds’ matches against Burnley, QPR and Rotherham, Evans stated that he felt his side had been the better side in the contests.

Leeds were beaten 1-0 by Burnley at Turf Moor and 2-1 by Rotherham at the New York Stadium, while they could only pick up a draw against QPR at Elland Road.

Despite these disappointing results, Leeds’ current run of form has still done Evans’ standing at the club the world of good.

When Evans first took charge his appointment was not unanimously welcomed, but he appears to have won over some of the doubters - with many Leeds fans now hoping he will be in charge again next season.
