LUFC Grayson accepts job is on the line
Leeds United boss Simon Grayson says he realises his job is on the line after another defeat.
Leeds lost their third game in a row with another poor performance and Grayson says he is ready to work extremely hard to put things right but he understands the decision on his future is out of his hands.
"I`m dependant on results. I will guarantee I will be working extremely hard to bring players in from Monday. To put the right team out on Monday to get a result and whatever is decided after that, it is not my decision.
"One thing I will do, which I have done for three years is work extremely hard to put things right and get back on a run again."
Leeds had lost against Reading and Derby before today with two poor performances but the performance against Barnsley today was a new low.
Barnsley cruised to a 4-1 victory and it could have quite easily have been more as Leeds crumbled after going behind.
Substitute Ricardo Vaz Te scored a hat trick and Craig Davies added another as Barnsley, who had lost their last three cruised to the three points.
Grayson is under no illusions that his job is not on the line after another poor defeat but he is hoping the players can take some responsibility and bounce back against Burnley on Monday.
"When you lose three games on the trot and you lose in the manner that we have done today, I am not daft enough to think that people are thinking everything is happy days at the football club in terms of results and other things. I just have to get my head down and keep working hard.
"Players must also take responsibility for that as well. They are the ones that cross the white line and put in performances like they have today but I will also accept responsibility for that as well," continued Grayson.
Despite the defeat Leeds are still just four points outside the play off positions going into the New Year but Grayson realises he cannot afford to see his side produce many more performances like the one at Barnsley.
