'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Lewis: 'Tactics Were All Wrong'

Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell's decision to start the match with just one striker - Rob Hulse - back-fired spectacularly, as Watford were quicker, stronger and sharper for a large proportion of the match.

Lewis admitted that, instead of trying to retain possession, Leeds had fallen into the trap of trying to beat Watford at their own, all-action game.

Lewis: 'We ended up playing Watford's game: we played far too direct a style.

'We didn't push onto them well, we let a lot of loose balls go and their midfielders picked up quite a bit. It's too soon to reflect right now.

'Automatic promotion is now the plan. If I make it back again, I'll give it another go, and hopefully end up on the right side.'

You should be there next season, but Wolves WBA Preston Birmingham and Palace may have something to say.

leeds were shocking fancy changing tactics for the big one and playing negative football

I always say - let the opposition worry about you, and not the other way. A bad tactical move i reckon.
