Barry Douglas was a second-half substitute in Leeds United’s 1-0 home defeat to Sheffield United in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.
Indeed, Ezgjan Alioski was once again selected at left-back, with Douglas ultimately replacing Jack Harrison in the 57th minute of the clash at Elland Road.
The 5ft 10in ace struggled to make his mark, though, and Sheffield United picked up a huge three points courtesy of a 71st-minute goal from Chris Basham.
Douglas arrived at Leeds off the back of a strong season with Wolverhampton Wanderers, but has found it difficult to show his best form for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
And the Leeds supporters made their feelings about the 29-year-old known following Saturday’s home defeat, which has left the Whites outside of the top two positions entering the very latter stages of the campaign.

Douglas looks an absolute shadow of the player wolves had last season I can only describe bringing him on as negative, seems to be absolutely shot of confidence ?#lufc

Spot on. Douglas has been very poor this season and Alioski would’ve been there for the tackle. All the fine margins went for Sheff Utd today. ?
