Round-Up: Leeds not professional enough, says Redfearn
Monday 13 February 2012
Leeds United's caretaker manager, Neil Redfearn, suggested a paucity of professionalism has affected his players this season after the team suffered a 2-1 defeat to Brighton at Elland Road on Saturday.
Alan Navarro struck a 91st-minute winner for Brighton to condemn Leeds to their sixth home defeat of the campaign, after Luciano Becchio had equalised Craig Michael-Smith's second-half opener for the visitors.
"Conceding two [goals] so late on is a trait that has run through this season," said Redfearn, who was named caretaker after the club's chairman, Ken Bates, dismissed Simon Grayson as manager last week. "It's a lack of professionalism and that's something that has run through for a while."
Hull manager Nick Barmby, meanwhile, praised Matty Fryatt profusely after the forward ended his 10-game goal drought to help his promotion hopefuls to a 3-0 victory over relegation-threatened Bristol City.
Fryatt struck on the hour after Hull had taken control of the contest early on, with Jack Hobbs and Robert Koren both heading in goals in the space of two minutes.
"Everyone at this club believes in Fryatt," Barmby said. "He took his goal really well and his all-round game was first-class. He has good mental strength and he knows he is an integral part of our squad."
