Leeds United hit a stumbling block in their Championship campaign when they lost to Cardiff City on Tuesday night.
The Whites faced Neil Warnock’s team in Wales knowing that a defeat would knock them off the top spot of the league table.
Thomas Christiansen’s side had only lost one of their nine Championship games prior to the midweek trip, but they were unable to overcome Cardiff.
The Yorkshire outfit went 2-0 down before half-time and they suffered another blow shortly after the hour mark when Kenneth Zohore nabbed his second goal.
Kemar Roofe got on the scoresheet for Leeds with 23 minutes left to play, but it was not enough to lead a comeback and Christiansen’s team had to accept defeat.
As expected, plenty of fans were disappointed in the result, but others are looking at the outcome from a realistic viewpoint.
Gaffer got it massively wrong.

Before the Ipswich game we all said we'd settle for 4 – 5 or 6 pts from the next 3 games – it's still the case so we move on to Sunday

Very poor tonight. Bad team selection. We made Sol Bamba look like Claude Makelele. How Hernandez started in front of Saiz shocking night.

Terrible first half – Need to show more aggression in these games & control it more…we gifted that game to them, very frustrating.

Forgotten what it feels like to be beaten like that, specially after so much anticipation. But take 2nd after 10 games.

Leeds currently sit second in the table, three points adrift of Cardiff and three points inside the promotion and playoff places.
