It was just one of those days today. The first time Leeds have failed to score since the Boro 0-0 draw. Twice today Leeds had efforts cleared of the line and with some sloppy defensive play, it was never going to end well.
Norwich and Derby are currently drawing 3-3 after a power failure at the ground, hold on Frank. It looks like a few players are in need of a rest, but with a small squad like this, is it possible?
Bailey Peacock-Farrell – 6 – Made a few half decent saves, one that came right before Hull scored their second.
Into the defence…
Luke Ayling – 4 – Not sure if it’s just me but Ayling has looked quite poor since coming back from injury, his passing is dreadful at times.
Pontus Jansson – 6 –Even Pontus got beat more than we’re used to seeing by Kamil Grosicki especially, not his strongest day.
Kalvin Phillips – 5 –At fault for the first goal, I think Bielsa will probably move him back into midfield after this and that would be a good move.
Barry Douglas – 5 – Douglas got beat far too easily in the buildup to the second goal, it feels harsh saying negatives about anyone considering we’re top of the league but Douglas hasn’t been quite as good as I expected after how brilliant he was for Wolves.
Into the midfield…
Adam Forshaw – 3 – All he seemed to do was give the ball away. Halme in for Forshaw and KP into midfield please Marcelo.
Mateusz Klich – 3 – Just as bad as Forshaw today, he put in a tired performance and it became extremely clear that he does not have a left foot.
Pablo Hernandez – 6 – He tried his best but even some of his passes were sloppy today, we can’t put the whole game on his shoulders every week.
Into the attack…
Jack Harrison – 4 – A typical Harrison performance really, a few fancy flicks but no end product.
Jack Clarke – 6 – A major upgrade on Harrison but Clarke struggled slightly with his final ball today, it’s got to be worth starting him against Forest.
Gjanni Alioski – 7 – Alioski was one of the better players for Leeds today, his work-rate was exceptional. As always though, he was probably better defensively than going forward.
Kemar Roofe – 6 – After all his magic recently, Roofe just couldn’t get into the game. It was one of those days unfortunately.
Let us know what you think needs to change for the game at Forest!
