If Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa is hoping that Ezgjan Alioski will play through his bad form then he might have another thing coming.
The Macedonia international has really been struggling in recent weeks, to the point where Bielsa has taken him off at half-time in two of Leeds' last three Championship games.
Despite his form, Alioski, who hasn't scored since September and hasn't set one up in over two months, was given another start by the Argentine in this afternoon's visit of QPR.
But the 26-year-old did very little to justify his inclusion following yet another rather lifeless display from the former Lugano winger.
Here's how Leeds fans reacted to the latest performance of Alioski, who joined the Whites from Lugano in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post to be worth £2 million.
I'm officially completely finished with Alioski.— Ohhhh Gary Kelly! (@BuntyLUFC) December 8, 2018
Alioski worst player to wear a Leeds shirt— Jack Cowgill ✌ (@JackCowgill7) December 8, 2018
Got to hook Forshaw and Alioski for Halme and Clarke. Both beyond terrible. #lufc— AP (@1988AMP) December 8, 2018
Alioski should not be on.— Sorely (@Samtonked76) December 8, 2018
Ridiculous how little quality Alioski has on the ball— Jake (@JakeLUFC_) December 8, 2018
Alioski been poor yet again. He seems to have no clue what he wants to do with the ball. #lufc— MaltaWhite (@carl_bulger) December 8, 2018
Alioski isn’t a footballer. He is so bad it’s cruel to even point it out. #lufc— CK (@ephemeraljoy) December 8, 2018
Alioski aside, the Whites picked up a great win over Steve McClaren's side, who went ahead through Nahki Wells, but Kemar Roofe levelled up before the break.
Roofe then added another from the penalty spot on 53 minutes - United's first spot-kick since October 2017 - to seal the comeback.
Bielsa's side have a five-point cushion in the automatic promotion places.
