LUFC McDermott - Humiliating for all of us

Leeds United boss Brian McDermott says it was a public humiliation after seeing his side lose 6-0 in the Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday in front of the live Sky TV cameras.

Leeds came into the game on the back of an embarrassing cup exit at Rochdale last weekend. McDermott and the players were slated by the fans at the end of the game, something he said he never wanted to go through again but unfortunately, it got worse at Sheffield Wednesday as Leeds produced another totally inept performance.

Speaking after the defeat at Hillsborough, McDermott said, "After that, in a local derby, it`s public humiliation as far as I`m concerned.

"It has to start on Sunday morning and I`ll go back to basics with this team to do whatever we`ve got to do as a group.

"That was just unbelievable. It doesn`t matter about being lower than the Rochdale game, that`s just humiliating for all of us.

"I don`t distance myself from the players because I`m part of the group. We`ve had a good run to get to 35 points, but we`re having a poor time now.

"It`s a terrible time for Leeds United, the supporters and us."


After a slow start to the game by both sides, Reda Johnson scored from close range to give the Owls the lead on 20 minutes.

The home side doubled their lead just before the break when Atdhe Nuhiu was found unmarked at the back post to slide home.

Matt Smith was brought on by McDermott at half time to add some bite to the attack but his afternoon lasted less than two-minutes when he was shown a straight red card for a late challenge on Johnson, catching the Wednesday defender in the face with his shoulder.

Connor Wickham and Chris Maguire added two more goals before an hour was on the clock before substitute, Caolan Lavery came off the bench to score twice in the last ten minutes to inflict Leeds heaviest league defeat in 55-years.
