Leeds United supporters fear the worst after 'absolutely pathetic' defeat to Bournemouth

Leeds United supporters were left bitterly disappointed after a 4-1 defeat to Bournemouth. The result leaves Javi Gracia's side a point above the drop zone with their relegation rivals boasting a game in hand.

Bournemouth didn't have to work hard for their two-goal lead with Leeds poor at the back once again. Jefferson Lerma gave the hosts the lead after just twenty minutes, finding the back of the net from the edge of the box after being left unmarked.

Illan Meslier then flapped at a corner four minutes later to allow Lerma a free hit on goal for his second. Patrick Bamford halved the deficit just after the half-hour mark to give the Whites a lifeline heading into half-time.
