Leeds United lost to fellow promotion hopefuls Sheffield United on Friday evening.
Leeds United's resurgence did not last long, with a late David Brooks' strike ensuring Sheffield United left Elland Road with all three points on Friday evening.
The Whites had gone into the fixture with a recent 3-0 victory against Bristol City under their belt. However Thomas Christiansen's side could not make it back-to-back league wins, losing 2-1 with their consolation strike coming from Kalvin Phillips.
Leeds again opted to play three midfielders, with Ronaldo Vieira remaining in the starting XI after his impressive showing a week earlier. However, this time the Blades won out, moving to the top of the Championship in the process.
Pennington looked solid during pre-season before an early injury struck, but questions have been asked since he returned to the fold, especially with Pontus Jansson regularly overlooked despite his outstanding form last season.
There is no doubting the Leeds loanee's quality, yet he has to show consistency over the next few months to ensure his temporary club continue to challenge for a top-six finish.

Tbf to Pennington he wasn't the only one who didn't show up last night for @LUFC Overall this season where heading in the right direction— Matthew Clough (@fieldheadrhino1) October 28, 2017
Pennington, Ayling both asleep & put us behind instantly. No excuses for their inept defending, amateur at best. No mistakes we win or draw!— paul warrick (LUFC) (@paulwarrick3) October 28, 2017
Pennington made errors last night. Cooper cant play the ball out goes long. Id put Connor in for one of them, impressed by that lad.— Nick (@NickoSlick_LUFC) October 28, 2017
Sorry, I thought Leeds were dismal considering Summer investment. As for Lasogga and Pennington, they are absolutely dog, rubbish. #lufc— PeteB. (@LordSnooty68) October 28, 2017
Pennington shocking, Ayling caught out (again) Where's Alioski from Forrest game, Grot, why bother & was Lassoga on bench tonight.. #lufc— Danny (@DannyB8z) October 27, 2017
Pennington & Cooper never again a disaster, both were tripping over their own feet & not good enough players to play out from the back #lufc— Kirsty Stanley (@stanners_1982) October 27, 2017
Pennington not good enough, Vieira looked nervous. Final product non-existent, and Roofe left on the bench? Sort it out #lufc— Butch (@WillButcher8) October 27, 2017
