Leeds boss Simon Grayson finally stopped trying to play Mr nice guy after Leeds latest dismal away performance.
Since Grayson`s arrival at the club he`s usually tried to make excuses and concentrated on the few positives of our performance but after Tuesday evening`s passionless performance he told a few home truths to the team.
Speaking on the official website Grayson said "The players should be hurting, it was poor"
Leeds had a great chance to take the lead but squandered the opportunity when Lee Trundle`s spot kick was saved, within minutes they were trailing 1-0!
For far too long they have been getting it far too easy they are not pulling on the Leeds United shirt and playing with the passion that the fans deserve, Continuing Grayson said "I`m not criticising individuals or players - we have had words and hopefully they will use that as inspiration. If not one or two might not play for the club again"
Leeds have now slipped to eight in the table but luckily still only stand four points outside the play off positions.
Next up are two home clashes, first up is Cheltenham Town before a game against play off rivals Scunthorpe United.
Leeds home form seems to have returned to the form they showed earlier in the season, it`s their away form that still mystifies Leeds fans with them only winning three and losing eight of their last eleven. With seven away games still to play this season including games at Oldham Athletic and Leicester City, Leeds need to win at least four of the seven games if they are to have any chance of the play offs.
