Luke Ayling has admitted that Leeds United feel they should have more points on the board than the 10 they have posted.

Leeds picked up seven points in the opening four fixtures, but since then it’s only three from a possible 12.

Included in that latter run of results has been back-to-back 4-1 defeats, which Ayling has described as not good enough.

After a loss to Liverpool, Leeds beat Fulham and Sheffield United, before a point against Man City.

Wolves got the better of Leeds after October’s international break, but Leeds responded by beating Aston Villa 3-0.

However, what followed was Leeds losing 4-1 to Leicester City and then Crystal Palace.

Ayling (speaking to LUTV) has been discussing the club’s start to the season, where he revealed Leeds felt they should have posted more points on the board.

Overall, I think we’ve started well, but the last two games have been disappointing.

To let in eight goals in the Premier League and expect to get anything from it, that’s not going to happen, so we have to tighten up there.

We have still been in games though and I don’t think the score-lines have been fair if you really look at it.

We’re eight games in and have 10 points, so it’s not the worst start in the world, but certainly inside the dressing room, we think we should have a few more points on the board.

In my opinion, Leeds are maybe around where they should be.

They should’ve got something off Liverpool and Wolves, but were maybe lucky to win late against Sheffield United.

We’ve been in every game at some point too, even the defeats to Leicester and Palace, where a shot against the crossbar and then a dubious offside call stopped us drawing level.

There is enough there to suggest we could win more points and really cause a few top sides a problem.

We’ve just got to keep plugging away and tighten up defensively and we will be fine.
