UWE ROSLER felt that his Leeds United side were unfortunate to come away empty handed, following Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion at Elland Road.
The result leaves the Whites in 18th place, with only 11 points from their first 11 games.
He told yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk, “Things are just not going for us at the moment. There were three key moments in the game. They scored from their first attack and I feared the worst, but we showed terrific character and got a quick equaliser.
“The second key moment was when Chris Wood didn’t take his unbelievable opportunity. The game looked like ending 1-1 so we brought on Mirco Antenucci and Will Buckley to try and win it but the third key moment was Liam Cooper’s injury, leaving us with ten men.
“Having said all that, we can’t feel sorry for ourselves. There are a lot of people far worse off than us so we have to pick ourselves up and go again.
“I feel a bit sorry for the players, supporters and owner. When you invest as much as the players do in training and get so little back it’s disappointing.”

CHRIS HUGHTON expressed his satisfaction with Brighton & Hove Albion’s four-point lead at the top of the Sky Bet Championship table, but admits an element of good fortune will be needed to maintain their fine form.
The Seagulls remain the only unbeaten side in the top four divisions of English football, but the Albion manager is prepared should tougher times arise.
He said, “You are always conscious of the next game and you’re always conscious that there’s still an incredibly long way to go.
“At this moment, we still haven’t reached a quarter of the way through the season and there will still be plenty more twists and turns.
“I am really delighted with our approach in this first part of the season and you hope that you get the necessary wins and points.
“Fortunately for us we have managed to do that, but we watched Bristol City win at home on Friday night and it’s going to be another tough game for us on Tuesday.
“You will always be tested over the course of a season with a loss of form, suspensions and injuries. How well you cope with those factors determines how well a team does.
“I thought that Bournemouth were the best team in the league last season and they were outstanding.
“But they almost had an injury-free season. Sometimes you need that bit of good fortune. But at this minute, we deserve to be where we are and we’ve won games in different ways, which is pleasing.”
