Everything looked so rosy after the comeback win against Millwall. Fast forward a week and they couldn’t look any more grim. A terrible performance all round, where very few players turned up.
Kiko Casilla – 9 – One of the few who did actually turn up, some great saves to keep us in it second half.
Into the defence…
Luke Ayling – 5 – Got himself into numerous good positions and almost always wasted them, not one of his best games.
Pontus Jansson – 6 – Not quite the unmovable force we’ve come to know, Birmingham got in behind easily at times.
Kalvin Phillips – 8 – He and Kiko did as much as they could but they were surrounded by embarrassing performances today, KP had a brilliant game as the third centre-back.
Liam Cooper – 6 – Resorted to hoofing the ball forward on numerous occasions as Leeds ran out of ideas.
Gjanni Alioski – 4 – Some absolutely shocking decision-making, didn’t really contribute to the game at all.
Into the midfield…
Matuesz Klich – 6 – Some nice passing but it was a difficult day for him alone in the midfield.
Pablo Hernandez – 4 – One of the worst performances I’ve ever seen from Hernandez, his passing was off it all game long.
Stuart Dallas – 6 – A great ball to Bamford who should have finished it with ease, but other than that Dallas failed to make any impact whatsoever.
Into the attack…
Jack Harrison – 3 – Don’t remember him doing one thing right on the ball, seemed to fall over a lot. Not a good day for him.
Tyler Roberts – 4 – Roberts has shown so much promise recently but today he was just sloppy, poor passing and less incisive runs in behind than we’re used to seeing.
Patrick Bamford – 0 – An embarrassment, his hold-up play was diabolical and his finishing was even worse. He is costing us at the moment, big time.
A completely bottle-less performance when we needed them to show up the most. Now it’s back out of our hands and if we play like that against Preston, we’ll likely lose again.
