Leeds United manager Garry Monk has told BBC Radio Leeds that his players are 'very disappointed' after drawing 1-1 with Wigan Athletic on Tuesday night.

The Whites were looking to bounce back from Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Derby County by beating a struggling Wigan side at Elland Road, and after a superb goal from Chris Wood, it looked like Leeds would pick up all three points.

Monk's men led for more than an hour, but came unstuck at the death as Shaun MacDonald hammered home an injury time equaliser to grab a 1-1 draw for Gary Caldwell's men.

Leeds fans, players and staff were unsurprisingly left deflated at the final whistle, as two points had slipped through their fingers in the dying embers of the game.

Leeds must now respond against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, with manager Monk no doubt keen to get back to winning ways after just one point from the last two fixtures.

After Tuesday's draw, Monk told BBC Radio Leeds that he felt the first half was an even affair, but told his players to push forward and get a second half during his half-time team talk.

Monk suggested that Leeds looked like doing just that early in the second half, but couldn't find the second goal – and were ultimately made to pay late on.

The Leeds boss added that the players were 'very disappointed' in the dressing room after the game, but they must now use that experience to make sure they don't concede late on again.

"The first half was quite even to be honest," said Monk. "We scored a really good goal, we showed our quality in that moment, and I spoke to the player at half time about the next step for this group is to try and get that lead and not to take a step backwards, but to kill the game and go and win the game, rather than just get through the game. I think we came out in the second half and did it, and again we had the chances to get that second goal, but we didn't - and we ended up paying the ultimate price."

"It's another experience for them tonight. I think it's time that we've conceded such a late goal in that type of situation. They're all very disappointed in the changing room, it's an experience for all of them and one that they need to make sure they don't repeat," he added.
