Leeds United Boss Marcelo Bielsa Picks Out One Area His Side Need To Improve On To Help Gain Championship Promotion
Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa was pleased with his team's all-round performance on Saturday afternoon as they beat Bolton Wanderers 2-1 at Elland Road to maintain their quest for Championship promotion this season.
With Norwich City and Sheffield United winning then Leeds needed to make sure they bagged three points of their own and goals from Patrick Bamford and Ezgjan Alioski were enough to ensure they stayed in third place in the second tier.
However, in the aftermath of the game Bielsa spoke openly about the one area he felt Leeds were vulnerable in against Bolton, and it will be an area his team will need to sharpen up on if they are to try and storm to promotion from the Championship.
Mark Beevers bagged an equaliser for Bolton in West Yorkshire, and it was a set piece that saw Leeds come undone and Bielsa was disappointed with his team's ability to clear set pieces, and wants them to improve.
Bielsa said: "We had chances to score and we didn’t score goals and we suffered on set pieces." Reiterating his point Bielsa added. "We had many chances to score and missed some goals and dangerous actions by the opponent were on set pieces."
Leeds face a busy week of action as they take on Queens Park Rangers in midweek, while on Friday night they play host to West Bromwich Albion on home soil, and with the Baggies losing to the aforementioned Sheffield United then Darren Moore's side are sure to put pressure on Bielsa's outfit, who maintain their quest for a top-two spot.
