Steve Evans explains how Charlie Austin's marker reacted in the dressing room

The Leeds boss has been discussing Saturday afternoon's defeat to Queens Park Rangers in the Championship.

Leeds United head coach refused to name Charlie Austin's designated marker on Saturday afternoon but says that player is an 'honest lad' who put his hands up and apologised to his team-mates in the dressing room after the game, according to BBC Radio Leeds.

Indeed, the Scot believes all Leeds fans know who was at fault and that there was no defensive disorganisation - simply a lapse in concentration from the man told to stick with Austin.

The QPR striker netted a second-half winner with his first touch after coming on, heading home to hand the R's a 1-0 victory at Loftus Road.

And Evans told BBC Radio Leeds: "He's put his hands up. He comes into the dressing room and apologises to the group. Our supporters have seen the footage, I don't need to name him. He's an honest lad but he didn't do his job."

It's a shame one individual error ultimately cost United but the the cold hard fact is the Whites' overall display was simply not good enough.

Leeds were once again lacklustre in midfield and the final third, while their defending let them down when it mattered most against QPR.

Evans will need to think dynamically to sort his side out against Hull City. For, right now, Leeds are performing no differently to how they did under Uwe Rosler.
