Leeds United manager Marco Bielsa has refused to place the blame on striker Patrick Bamford after the club succumbed to a surprise 1-0 defeat at Birmingham City. The promotion-chasing outfit were up against the Blues, who had suffered five losses on the bounce but they could not take advantage of the situation with Che Adams scoring the sole goal for the hosts in the 29th minute.
Leeds were the dominant team during the outing with more than three-quarters of the possession but they struggled to find creativity in the final third with just one attempt on target. Due to this, they have once more witnessed Sheffield United leapfrog them to the second automatic promotion spot but they still have time to turn things around with six matches to play.
Leeds return to Championship action in midweek where they are scheduled to face Preston North End on the road. Alex Neil’s team have particularly struggled at home with just two wins since the turn of the year and it remains to be seen whether Leeds can produce a strong performance to outclass them at Deepdale on Tuesday night.
