Some Leeds United fans were incredibly quick to take to social media yesterday evening as we saw ourselves knocked out of the EFL Cup at the hands of fellow Championship side Preston North End.

A second-minute penalty in the game was built on later in the first half of the game and despite a stronger finish from Leeds and better domination of the key statistics in the game, the one that mattered read 2-0 at the full-time progression as they booked their place in the third round.

27-year-old Dallas has shown his quality on a number of occasions following his arrival from Brentford back in the August 2015 transfer window, but there’s no denying he had a bad day at the office as he made his second appearance of the year given his involvement with the early penalty.

Whether other fans were more forgiving given he took up the right-back berth with Jamie Shackleton pushed into his more natural midfield slot, is for them to answer but it was a poor opening 45 for a number of players.

His error made him a clear standout for initial in the moment reactions and he’d no doubt be disappointed himself. He’s the one who can make amends for it though when his next chance comes along and how he reacts is probably of more importance.
