Dave Hockaday said he was angry and frustrated amid reports the head coach was set to lose his job in the wake of a 4-1 defeat to Watford.

Leeds were thumped at Vicarage Road and reduced to nine men in the process.

Leeds are fourth bottom after four games with head coach Hockaday already under pressure with reports emerging on Saturday evening that he will lose his job as Leeds boss.

Owner Massimo Cellino has a reputation of not sticking by managers for long, and asked after the defeat whether he thought he would be given time, Hockaday said: “That’s not my decision.

“I’m comfortable I’m getting more out of these players than anyone else could.

“The boys are giving me everything but we need up to four players with Championship experience.”
