Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips has revealed to The Yorkshire Evening Post that he had never seen Mateusz Klich miss a penalty before.
The Whites were awarded a spot kick during their visit of Derby County to Elland Road this afternoon, but the Poland international sent it wide.
It proved a very costly miss, with the Rams equalising in the closing minutes to deny Leeds what would have been a well-deserved three points, by virtue of their dominance.
Klich was arguably a little too blasé with the penalty, sending it wide, but Phillips has revealed to The Yorkshire Evening Post that he has never seen him miss from 12 yards before, even in training.
He said: "Klichy practices penalties all the time and I don't think I have ever seen him miss to be honest. It was just one of them things, it happens and I am pretty sure he won't be too disheartened about it.
"As long as he comes out next week and gets a goal, it will make up for it."
What a sickener for Leeds, who were miles better than Phillip Cocu's side on the balance of play.
But the same frailties from last season - a lack of killer instinct at crucial times - seems to be undoing them once again this time around.
