LUFC Grayson - Two mistakes cost us

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson felt that two mistakes cost his side the points in the 2-1 defeat at Cardiff City.

It was Leeds first defeat in thirteen games since losing to the same opposition in October.

Leeds lost to a goal in each half from Craig Bellamy and Michael Chopra but Grayson felt that the goals were from poor defending by his side that could have easily been avoided.

Speaking on the official website, Grayson said, "It was hugely disappointing.
"They were both goals we could have eradicated. In the end we made two mistakes and suffered the consequences."

Leeds fell behind inside ten minutes when Cardiff played a short corner with Leeds not prepared. The ball was eventually played into Bellamy who was in acres of space and had plenty of time to pick his spot.

Robert Snodgrass got Leeds back on level terms on the hour and they looked the more likely side to go on and claim all three points until a hopeful ball over the top was pounced on by Chopra and he beat Schmeichel from a tight angle.

Leeds came close to equalising late on when Heaton in the Cardiff goal had to make saves from Bradley Johnson and John Howson but it was a disappointing end to the unbeaten run that started in October.

Thing is we made a lot more than two mistakes, it was just Cardiff were wasteful with the rest of them. Got to get this defence sorted. We was watching a video of all the games so far this season on the way to the game and nearly all the goals are the same. We never seem to be within ten yards of the goalscorer and usually happens through a lack of concentration. Somebody really needs to take control at the back.

Yep Dazza I agree. Watching the second goal again if Kasper had stayed on his line making Chopra control the ball O'Brien was coming in fast and he wpould probably have rushed his shot. Kasper made it easy for him there. One mistake was resting Becchio instead of Gradel who is looking very jaded. Sam should have replaced Gradel and if he wanted to rest Becchio as well Watt could have played the link role instead of McC.

A lot of ball watching cost us too...And all the space they had to run into, and none of our defenders done nothing but look on over their shoulders...And the big danger men Bellamy & Chopra just came at us at will, it's hard to believe nobody could mark them or couldn't we were lucky the score stood at 2-1...

We was lucky to not be out of sight in the first half, we was really poor.
