LUFC Bates -We should be higher than we are

Leeds United chairman Ken Bates says the side should higher in the division than they currently are.

Leeds are currently one place outside the play off places in seventh place but Bates feels they have thrown away far too many points this season.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Bates said, "Well you have got to commend it, but you also have got to do soul-searching on why we have lost the games we`ve lost and why have we drawn the games we`ve drawn.
"And, without being too critical, the fact of the matter is we have lost games rather than be beaten.
"We have given away the points rather than them being earned by the opposition and that`s something that we`ve had too much of and it`s got to stop.
"There are discussions going on this week, heart-searching in the backroom to decide what we can do to improve the situation because we should be higher than we are."

Leeds started the season by losing their opening two games of the season.

They then lost just one of their next nine games to get into the play off places.

This was followed by one win in four, which culminated in a humiliating 5-0 home defeat at the hands of Blackpool.

Leeds bounced back with a 1-0 win at Leicester City in their last game to move back into contention at the top end of the table.
