Vital Leeds United contributor King Billy made the trip to Elland Road on Monday to watch the clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

He gives us his view of the performance after Leeds went down to a 1-0 defeat and slipped out of the play-off places.

Green 7 Star Man
Green once again kept Leeds in the game with a couple of really good saves before eventually conceding.

Ayling 6
He tried to keep things going at the back but it was probably the worst performance collectively across the back four this season.

Bartley 5
Both Bartley and Jansson were stretched in the first half, struggling to get into the game.

Jansson 5
He must take his share of the blame for the first goal as he decided to run out of defence. Looked like he was trying his hardest to get booked in the last ten minutes and get his suspension. If we do make the play-offs, he will definitely miss the first leg if he gets a booking at Burton.

Berardi 4
It was possibly his worst game in a Leeds shirt. He was more like Bambi than Berardi in the first half as he continuously slipped. He was very lucky to get away with one slip when Green saved his blushes with a good save.

Bridcutt 4
He needs leaving out of the side. We have looked poorer with him in it since the turn of the year.

Phillips 5
He was the better of the two in the middle but that isn`t saying much.

Hernandez 5
Off the pace again. He goes missing whenever we are in trouble.

Roofe 4
He didn`t get involved enough. A bit like Friday, he went missing for long periods. He did almost grab us a point at the end when his effort was cleared off the line.

Wood 4

It was route-one stuff to Wood for most of the game and he struggled to get into the game. You have to play to his strengths. It has worked for most of the season.

Pedraza 5
Pedraza was like most of his teammates. The game passed him by in the first half and he was eventually replaced.


Sacko 5

Once again, his delivery into the middle is shocking. Some really good opportunities wasted by poor crossing.

Doukara 5
He almost scored with his first touch. I know he isn`t everybody`s favourite, but he must start at Burton. We need someone with a bit of strength in the final third to help Chris Wood.

Taylor 5
He gave us a better option on the left going forward. After the last two performances by Berardi, I think we need to bring Taylor into the side at Burton. He defends well and he gives us a better attacking option than Berardi.

I have been dreading this performance for so long. Teams have worked us out and the fact we didn`t strengthen the team in the right places in January, we have little options when we need to change things.

There is no plan B to fall back on and teams know exactly how and who to stifle out of the game now.

Somehow, we must dust ourselves down, go out and win the last three games. It is still in our own hands but not for much longer with performances like this.

Saturday could be pivotal with us at Burton and Sheffield Wednesday and Fulham both having difficult games. We need at least one of them to be dropping points.
