Leeds fans criticise Jamie Shackleton during defeat against Charlton

Championship Picks

Leeds fans were understandably frustrated during and after their encounter with Charlton on Saturday.

The Whites were again the dominant team and had over 70% of the possession. They amassed 19 shots but somehow failed to come away with all three points.

Macauley Bonne’s goal was the difference as Marcelo Bielsa’s men dropped to fourth in the league.

One of the players that fans took issue with was Jamie Shackleton who again started in central midfield despite Adam Forshaw returning to the squad.

At one point during the game a supporter wanted him to get off the pitch while another branded the youngster as not good enough.

A further individual said he was a passenger throughout the encounter as it was claimed he wasn’t ready to start matches.

The 19-year-old was starting his third game in a row for the Whites but was dragged off at half time.

Shackleton managed one unsuccessful touch and was also dispossessed as he failed to create a single chance or have a shot, via WhoScored.

With Forshaw now back and Tyler Roberts also fit again, his place could be under threat.

Here’s the best of the reaction from Twitter.
