Leeds suffered a 4-1 loss to Wolves on Wednesday night.

Sky Sports pundit Don Goodman has told EFL Matters that Leeds United are yet to show the form required of a side that have what it takes to gain promotion to the Premier League.

Thomas Christiansen’s side suffered a 4-1 loss to Championship league leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday night, which saw Gjanni Alioski score the Whites only goal and Ronaldo Vieira sent off in the second half.

Leeds now sit way down in tenth place in England’s second tier after starting the season in excellent form that saw them challenging the frontrunners for a place in the automatic promotion slots.

Leeds-born Goodman claimed the Whites are yet to show that they can win when they are not playing well, and highlighted an alarming statistic that is the Yorkshire giants have not won a league match when going behind.

“If you’re going to get promoted, or be at the top end of the Championship, you have to learn to win games of football when you’re not quite playing as well as you can be,” Goodman said.

“I’m not sure Leeds have done that so far this season. When they’ve conceded the first goal, they’ve lost every game. So that needs to change.”

The Whites are back in action on Saturday, as they play host to Yorkshire rivals Barnsley at Elland Road in a lunchtime kick-off in a match where they will be expected to win.

However, after eight losses in their last 10 games, Christiansen will be under pressure to mastermind a victory against Paul Heckingbottom’s side. Three points could see the Whites climb to sixth place, if Ipswich Town, Norwich City, Derby County and Middlesbrough all drop points.
