Leeds fans can’t believe how bad Caleb Ekuban was on Saturday

Leeds fans have been crucifying Caleb Ekuban on social media after the striker’s goalscoring drought continued against Sheffield Wednesday.

Leeds fell to yet another defeat on Saturday, as two second half goals from Atdhe Nuhiu meant the visitors left Elland Road with all three points, leaving Leeds with just one point from their last four matches. In fact, Leeds are now bottom of the form table since Boxing Day, one point below Sunderland.

Caleb Ekuban was given the nod ahead of Pierre-Michel Lasogga on Saturday, and needless to say fans were not particularly impressed by the 23 year-old’s performance.

Ekuban scored 17 goals in 34 league appearances in Albania last season, but has failed to find a league goal yet for Leeds. The pacey striker has put in plenty of effort since arriving, but two foot injuries in the first half of the season set him back quite considerably.

He has now started the last two for Leeds, but his goalscoring woes have continued. Ekuban had two fantastic chances in the first half against Wednesday but couldn’t find the net, before getting his feet tangled and spurning a great chance after the break.

Many fans have called for Pierre-Michel Lasogga to return to the line-up, or to at least try starting both strikers. Lasogga is likely to return from his loan spell this summer though, and it seems Leeds are preparing for life without the big German by sticking with Ekuban.
