Leeds United player ratings v Coventry City with 4/10 for disappointing pair and sole 7

Leeds United fell to a first league loss of the year as Saturday’s Championship clash at Coventry City ended in a 2-1 defeat – but how did we rate the performances?

Leeds fell behind in the ninth minute after failing to deal with a Coventry corner from which Ellis Simms headed the Sky Blues ahead. The Whites then conceded a second goal four minutes into the second half as a rapid Coventry counter attack ended with Haji Wright converting from the middle of the box.

Daniel Farke’s side finally pulled a goal back in the 76th minute through Joel Piroe who then squandered a glorious chance to draw the Whites level deep in stoppage time. But the contest ultimately ended in a 2-1 defeat for Leeds who now find themselves out of the division’s automatic promotion places with five games left.

Leeds United writer Lee Sobot hands out the scores from a hugely disappointing afternoon at the CBS Arena.
