Leeds United have seen the wheels fall off their promotion wagon in recent weeks as they have struggled to put together a run of consistency, which has led to a tight chase for the title alongside Sheffield United and Middlesbrough.

An injury setback sustained by Luke Ayling leaves the full-back sidelined until the New Year and Marcelo Bielsa now lacks options down the right side of the defence, which has caused frustration for many Leeds fans regarding one loan deal approved in the summer.

23-year-old Lewis Coyle returned to League One outfit Fleetwood Town for a second season, now playing under Joey Barton, and many supporters believe he should be recalled to fill the void left by Ayling’s injury.

While Stuart Dallas, Jamie Shackleton and Gaetano Berardi can provide cover in Ayling’s absence, plenty of fans believe that the decision to loan Coyle out once again has come back to haunt the Peacocks.

We have gathered some of the best reactions below.

  • Again, the Twitter lot show their lack of knowledge. Coyle was regularly slated, no doubt by these same fans! He is not good enough at this level and proved that time after time. A succession of managers have the same opinion of him. There are better options in the U23s.
