Leeds’s disappointing run of form in the Championship continued at the weekend, as they went down 3-1 to Brentford away from home at Griffin Park on Saturday evening.

Goalkeeper Andy Lonergan was responsible for the first goal that the Whites conceded, and former Leeds striker Bobby Davison has criticised the 34-year-old.

“Both goals were his fault,” Inside Futbol quotes Davison as saying. “He couldn’t do anything about the third one. But he has got to hold his hands up and say, ‘I apologise, it’s my fault'."
