'We should have scored more goals' Bielsa

Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa felt his side's 2-1 victory at Wigan should have been even more emphatic.

Leeds United returned to the top of the Championship with the win on Sunday, however head coach Marcelo Bielsa was not overly impressed with his side's display. 

Goals from Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe were enough to gain all three points at the DW Stadium, although Bielsa feels like his side should have scored more goals. 

"If we look at the chances we created, chances they created, possession... we should have scored more goals," Bielsa told the 'Daily Mail'. 

"But it was very important to win, especially having only drawn at home in our last game. One of our goals is to prevent the opposition having the ball.

"If we can prevent the opposition making passes, if we can recover possession quickly, we feel safer.

"We also have to take into account Wigan weren't able to call on their four first-choice attacking players."

The win saw United move back to the top of the second tier, but again Bielsa was not getting carried away.

"There are a number of teams near the top of the league who are at the same level," he added.

"In order to be top of the pile, we have to make a difference against teams at the top. We did that at the beginning of the season, but we stopped doing that.

"If we want to reach the goals we have set, we have to show more regularity in gaining points."
