Steve Evans highlights the pleasing thing about Leeds United midfielder Tom Adeyemi

Steve Evans has praised Tom Adeyemi's attacking play in recent weeks.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has told LUTV that he has been pleased with midfielder Tom Adeyemi recently - because he's been getting in to 'wonderful positions'.

The Whites travel To Molineux on Thursday evening, as they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Championship, with Evans desperately attempting to find some consistency.

Evans has taken charge of nine games since replacing Uwe Rosler in November, and his Leeds side have been consistently inconsistent in his near two month spell at Elland Road.

With three wins, three draws and three defeats, Leeds have yet to really find their feet on a regular basis under Evans, but will be hoping to kickstart a run of results against Wolves.

Ahead of that game, manager Evans has been talking about his squad, and particularly praised loan midfielder Tom Adeyemi.

The 24-year-old was one of Rosler's main summer signings having worked with the German at Brentford, hence his desire to reunite with Adeyemi at Elland Road.

Rosler has since been sacked, buy Adeyemi remains a key player at Leeds, as seen by his recent goal in Leeds' 2-1 win over Hull City - and Evans has told LUTV that he wants Adeyemi to keep getting in those advanced positions from midfield.

"The pleasing thing if you're Tom Adeyemi's manager is that he's getting in to some wonderful positions," said Evans. "He gets the goal against Hull City, he misses another one against Hull City, and in the previous games when we've deployed him in there at Fulham and at Bolton, he's missed chances, but that means he's getting in the box. We'll keep encouraging him to get in there," he added.
