Leeds midfielder Adam Forshaw praised Sam Allardyce for the work he has done at the club so far.
The narrow result against Man City was the first time Leeds conceded less than 3 goals away from home since April. Two goals from Ilkay Gundogan were enough to see off Leeds, but they put up a fight in the last minutes of the game. Forshaw believes Saturday’s result was due to the team executing Allardyce’s instructions to the letter (via YEP):
“Yeah, I do. I think we stuck at it, we took a lot on that he’d asked us. He didn’t give us loads of information. He praised us through the few days and said there’s good things that we do and didn’t want to over complicate it too much.
“I think maybe at times we took it maybe a little bit too literal, trying to go long or trying to play in the channel and catch them on the counter attack. There’s bits to work on but there are positives. Definitely. It went to the end.
“It might not have looked like that in the first half. That’s a real positive. These are a top, top side, world class players and a world class manager and we gave ourselves a chance so we’ll take the positives.”
The 30-year old added a few words on Rodrigo’s impact off the bench:
“It was a great finish. I think the manager said in the previews to the game, he said when you get a chance you have to take them and Rodri’s finish was brilliant. He came on and made an impact and the fans stuck at it, we stuck at it. They were a credit to themselves and we go again.”
