Steve Evans reacts to Leeds draw, says exactly what Uwe Rosler did

The Leeds head coach was responding to his side's 1-1 draw at Bolton.

Steve Evans says Leeds United went home disappointed on Saturday afternoon after a 1-1 draw at Bolton.

United were playing the bottom side in the Championship but took just the one point, with Evans declaring his team feel like they've dropped two.

At half-time, the head coach says he told his Leeds players to play without fear and saw a noticeable improvement after the break.

Yet Evans has also singled out United's biggest weakness - the fact they need to improve their final ball.

Interestingly, Uwe Rosler said the exact same thing about Jordan Botaka before he was sacked, also applying the same criticism for the rest of his team.

Does that suggest Leeds are still suffering from a Rosler hangover? A little like Liverpool are with Brendan Rodgers under Jurgen Klopp?

If the Whites were to sort out their deliveries in the final third, that would be plenty of problems solved. But it's never that easy in football, of course.

Leeds host Blackburn Rovers in their next Championship game, where fans will hope Evans' side relish the Elland Road atmosphere, as opposed to Rosler's version of United.
