Leeds fans furious with Ezgjan Alioski after the Wigan loss

Leeds United suffered a major blow in their pursuit of automatic promotion on Friday – and some of the club’s supporters raged at Ezgjan Alsioki for his performance.

The Whites were beaten 2-1 at home by Wigan, which means they have now slipped to third in the Championship table with just three games remaining.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side are now behind second-placed Sheffield United on goal difference and it’s out of their hands after a shock loss.

Leeds played against just 10 men for the majority of the game against Wigan, but were unable to make the extra man count and lacked a ruthlessness in front of goal.

Patrick Bamford did put the Yorkshire giants in front with a right-footed finish to make up for missing a penalty just minutes before.

But Gavin Massey netted a goal in each half to hand Wigan a serious boost with their battle against relegation.

A selection of Leeds fans singled out Alioski for criticism following his latest display and believe he had one of his worst performances.

The 27-year-old has been transformed into a left-back by Bielsa this campaign and cemented his spot after some real encouraging displays.

But his crossing was completely wayward in the defeat to Wigan and was too sloppy in possession.

Alioski was also out of position for Wigan’s equalising goal and defensively looked vulnerable.

Here are some of the Leeds fans commenting on Alioski:
