Luke Ayling: It’s frustrating

Defender on QPR defeat.

Leeds United defender Luke Ayling spoke to LUTV following Saturday’s defeat at Queens Park Rangers.

Despite a handball in the build up, Nahki Wells’ 20th minute effort was allowed to stand, ensuring the home side claimed the three points.

Ayling expressed his annoyance at the controversial goal and spoke about the game as a whole, insisting the Whites need to improve.

“It’s a hard one to take, they’ve had one shot on target and one handball which led to a shot on target that went in, so it is frustrating,” said Ayling.

“I was probably the closest player to the incident, it bounced off one all and he handballed it back into his path with the other.

“If a goal is scored using a hand it’s supposed to be no goal and from where I was standing it was obvious it touched one hand.

“We played really well, created chances and ultimately a goal which shouldn’t have been a goal has cost us a point at least.

“We are making plenty of chances, but it just isn’t going in at the moment.

“That comes from everyone, it’s not just one person who has to score the goals, other people have to step up to the plate and start chipping in with a few, it’s a collective effort and the goals have to come from every department.

“Things have got to change from the last few games because it hasn’t been good enough as we haven’t won a game.

“We are still second in the league, we are still in a very good position and there are still 18 games to go.

“We have a little break now, we’ll charge the batteries and go again.”
