Leeds United head coach Garry Monk wants his side to channel their frustrations from Saturday’s defeat against Huddersfield Town and produce a winning performance against Blackburn Rovers this evening.

The Yorkshire giants have made a poor start to the season, and another narrow 1-0 defeat in the west Yorkshire derby on Saturday compounded the problems for Monk and his men.

Another narrow defeat at home, Monk admits that the result was disappointing, but he is keen to see his side get over it in order to prepare for Blackburn Rovers’ visit to Elland Road this evening.

The Leeds boss admits that his side are desperate to get their first win at home this season, and he urged his players to use the frustration from Saturday’s loss and channel it into a positive performance against Blackburn at Elland Road.

Monk told LUTV: “Of course we are disappointed with our result on Saturday, it’s not the result that we wanted or the intention we had.  


“But you have to dust yourselves down really quickly, that’s the nature of the league, the games come thick and fast.

"We had two days in between on the training pitch, we need to put all our focus on Tuesday, and really get that first win at Elland Road.

“We are determined to do it, want the fans to have the three points and we want that on Tuesday.

“Again it is going to be a difficult game, but seeing the focus of the group, we want to put the frustrations of Saturday into this game and come out in the other side with a good performance, and hopefully three points.”

Leeds’ home record over the last few seasons has been dire, and they have won just three of their last twelve league games at Elland Road.
