Leeds United boss bemoans lack of options

first_imgLeeds United manager Neil Redfearn bemoaned a lack of options from the bench after his side’s 1-0 home defeat to Fulham.Redfearn brought on striker Billy Sharp and Wales Under-21 midfielder Chris Dawson in an attempt to take the game back from the visitors’ grasp, after Hugo Rodallega’s goal on the hour mark.But although they probed and produced a couple of saves from Whites keeper Gabor Kiraly, they were unable to muster an equaliser.Redfearn said: “There was too many off-days. We lacked that cutting edge, we looked reluctant to shoot. At the other end, they got in our box too easy.“The squad needs a bit of help, sometimes off the bench. If you’ve got more options you can think about playing differently.”Redfearn also revealed that midfielder Rudolph Austin was ruled out of the match after a “freak accident” during the warm-up.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
