LUFC Redfearn - It was a poor performance

LUFC Redfearn - It was a poor performance

Leeds United caretaker manager Neil Redfearn admitted he felt the performance was poor after seeing Leeds lose to bottom of the table Coventry City on Tuesday night.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Redfearn said, "It was disappointing. It wasn`t just the result. I thought the performance was poor.

"We got ourselves back in it after conceding, albeit without playing well, but I thought Coventry looked the more dangerous side."


Leeds looked like they were going to come away from the Ricoh Arena with a point despite the poor performance.

They came into the game on the back of a disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Brighton at the weekend and things continued pretty much in the same vain at Coventry.

Former Leeds loan player Gary McSheffrey fired the home side ahead from the penalty spot on 21 minutes after poor defending by Leeds eventually saw Danny Pugh commit a foul inside the area.

Leeds got back into the game on 31 minutes with their first shot on target when leading goalscorer Ross McCormack finished smartly.

The home side looked the more likely to score but Aidan Whit missed a gilt edged chance when he could only fire at the legs of Coventry keeper Joe Murphy when he had the goal at his mercy.

Leeds had to wait until the 90th minute for their first corner of the game, which came to nothing and they were punished soon afterwards.

The Leeds defence was all at season again on the left hand side and Aidan Whit was guilty of a trip inside the penalty area, which led to McSheffrey scoring his second penalty of the evening.

Coventry`s win moved them off the foot of the table, where Doncaster Rovers have replaced them.

Doncaster are next up for Leeds at Elland Road in what should be Neil Redfearn`s last game in temporary charge.
