Leeds United’s hopes of reaching the playoffs look to be a distant dream after they suffered a fourth defeat in six Championship games.
Paul Heckingbottom’s side were beaten 2-0 by Fulham on Tuesday night, with Kevin McDonald and Aleksandar Mitrovic getting on the scoresheet at Craven Cottage.
As it stands, the Whites sit 13th in the standings, 10 points adrift of the playoff places with six games to play.
On Tuesday night, the visiting side struggled to impose a serious threat on the goal, creating just two shots on target, according to BBC Sport.
In total, the team had nine attempts to score, but failed to convert any of them, and Heckingbottom’s men were also unable to dominate on the ball as they had just 40% possession overall.
Eunan O’Kane struggled to make an impression as he got through 23 minutes before being hauled off the pitch with a groin strain that hampered him earlier in the season.
The Republic of Ireland international has not been a favourite of the supporters for some time now, and the criticism continued following his brief appearance against Fulham
After the match, Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay mentioned the 27-year-old while tweeting updates from Heckingbottom’s post-match press conference.
In response, the fans were not hugely complimentary about O’Kane.
I’ll pay for his ferry across the Mersey back to the Emerald Isle

He was better once he came off. Some pride from 2nd half. Some good stuff. We're way off atm. 15mins of something. Hey ho, Safe home.

Can you ask why he was on the pitch in the first place phil

Even his groin doesnt rate him.

I thought O'Kane had gone off because he has no backbone.

Can you ask what photos @eunan10 has of Heckingbottom in order to force his place each game? Because I can't think of any other reason he plays other than he has photos locked away in a safety deposit of him in some uncompromising positions! #lufc
