With Leeds United going down 2-0 to Preston North End in yesterday evening’s EFL Cup tie, there were both positives and negatives to take from the display.

Manager Marcelo Bielsa’s first defeat in the season of 2018/19 still saw a much-changed side ultimately dominate possession and chances at goal with 26 attempts in total, but we couldn’t find a way past their keeper in the eight we managed to get on target.

A penalty and a second effort from them in the first half was enough to take the win from their seven efforts on target.

With some players not doing themselves any credit at all on the day, these fans who took to social media to react to the match were largely content as they were keeping their eyes on something far more important – the Championship table.

The more traditional amongst the fan base will be more irate with the loss, but the EFL Cup has been devalued by the EFL themselves it seems, so those fans aren’t alone in prioritising the league and I guess feelings will be different when it comes to the FA Cup itself.

  • Preston played well, Leeds poorly. Know some fans disappointed not to be in draw with big teams but I’m happy to wait until next season to play Premiership giants week in week out. Focus on promotion. MOT!
