'Little fight, urgency, passion' - Leeds United supporters' mood bleak after Fulham defeat

Leeds United supporters have already started to say their side has been relegated after their side were beaten by Fulham for the third time this season.

The reintroduction of Max Wober saw the Whites' defence hold firm throughout the first half, with the Austrian making numerous important blocks and challenges in order to keep the score at 0-0.

However, the deadlock would eventually be broken in the 58th minute by the hosts, when Willian's cross was tipped into the path of Harry Wilson by an outstretched glove by Illan Meslier, before the Fulham midfielder volleyed it home from close range.

Unfortunately for the Whites, the 23-year-old would parry another cross 14 minutes later, this time into the path of Andreas Pereira who had an empty net to rifle the ball into.

Leeds would pull a goal back however, as Patrick Bamford's flick onto the ball was turned in by Joao Palhinha amongst a big scramble in Fulham's penalty area to give them hope of an equaliser.

The goal reinvigorated the away end, with 'Marching On Together' sung loud and proud but the away fans would be unable to conjure up an leveller, leaving them 2-1 down at the final whistle.

The result leaves Leeds in 16th for now, but being the early kick-off on Saturday, they're in danger of slipping down into the relegation zone if both Everton and Nottingham Forest find wins this weekend.

Leeds fans went to social media to discuss the result, with many incredibly disappointed with what they'd seen and others already accepting relegation.
