Bielsa: Leeds ‘did everything to win’ despite 4-2 Forest defeat

Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa insists his side ‘did everything to win’ despite their 4-2 loss to Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

Goals from Jack Colback (2), Daryl Murphy and Ben Osborn consigned Leeds to a second straight defeat, with Bielsa’s side having to play the majority of the fixture with 10-men following Kalvin Phillips first-half dismissal.

Leeds remain top of the Championship, leading Norwich City by two points, and despite the result Bielsa insists his ‘did everything’ to get a result at The City Ground.

“We had to play with one player less. We were a little bit fragile in defence but during the 90 minutes we did everything to win. The players did a very big effort.’’ Bielsa told Sky Sports.

“It’s not a new fact that we have problems on set-pieces and it’s also not a new fact that we make it easier sometimes for the opponent to have chances to score.

“But the game has these kind of risks and the fact that we dared to play, sometimes it has negative aspects like today but it also gave us a style of play that we should be faithful to.”
