Leeds return to action on Saturday when they visit Griffin Park to play Brentford as the Championship campaign enters its 16th round of fixtures.
Having dropped off the playoffs zone, the Elland Road outfit risk slipping further down the log if they fail to get a win having lost 6 games already.
Midweek’s defeat to Derby County heaped further woes on the team, and that they saw their early lead result into a final 2-1 loss signified a lot is wrong.
Former Leeds manager Eddie Gray questioned the side’s lack of pace, concentration and leadership, attributing it to why they lost to the Rams.
The Peacocks legend told LUTV post-game: “We’ve got to move the ball quicker. A lot quicker.
“Once the type of game becomes a battle, not necessarily a battle of strength but a battle of wits, we need to be better.
“They had an experienced side and once they got a grip they were never letting go. We lack that little bit of concentration and leadership; you need that at times.”
Manager Thomas Christiansen will hope his charges get a grip on themselves in subsequent games in order to avoid losing concentration.
Much has been said of Leeds’ lack of physicality in games, and it remains one of their Achilles heels this term.
A lot of improvement is required if they are to keep their promotion dreams alive, as failure to do so could see them miss out on the playoffs again.
