Leeds United legend Trevor Cherry believes Steve Evans has brought back some pride to Elland Road of late.

The Scot took charge of the club in October following Uwe Rosler’s dismissal, and while the Whites did go through a tricky spell in the winter months, they have bounced back with three wins on the trot in the Championship.

Leeds are genuinely hopeful of finishing in the top ten this season, and Cherry believes Evans deserves some credit for their recent turnaround in results and performances.

He feels the Whites boss has been doing a good job in getting the best out of his limited squad and has brought back some pride to the Leeds shirt.

The Leeds legend told the Yorkshire Evening Post: “I actually think Steve Evans has done a good job with what he’s got and you can’t ask for much more really.  


“He has got a bit of pride back in, fair do’s. He seems to get what I call his pound of flesh out of his players.”

However, Cherry remains sceptical about Leeds’ progress, and admits things could again go south soon at Elland Road.

“[But] you just don’t know what is going to happen and I feared that they would go down at one stage [this season].

“You never know what is around the corner and I just despair.”

Leeds are currently 13th in the Championship table on 47 points, and will host Huddersfield Town in a Yorkshire derby on Saturday.
