Leeds United’s poor run of form continued on Friday evening, as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa away from home at Villa Park in the Championship.
The West Yorkshire outfit are struggling for results and for positive performances at the moment, and their luck did not improve this evening.
Lewis Grabban, currently on loan from Premier League club Bournemouth, scored the goal for Villa just before the half-hour mark.
The 20-year-old, who can operate as a striker or as a winger, came on in place of Ezgjan Alioski midway in the 66th minute.
Whelan told BBC Radio Leeds at full time (9:40pm, Friday, April 13, 2018): “Don’t get me started on Grot. I don’t think he passed the ball to one of our players since he came on. First one he gave away, second one he put out of play.”
Over the course of the 90 minutes at Villa Park on Friday evening, hosts Villa had 53% of the possession, took 17 shots of which five were on target, and earned five corners, according to BBC Sport.
Visitors Leeds had 47% of the possession, took nine shots of which two were on target, and earned four corners, according to BBC Sport.
