Garry Monk has described Leeds’ run of four defeats from six matches as “harsh” and not truly indicative of the team’s performances.

The Elland Road manager claimed there was little difference between the team during Saturday’s 1-0 defeat against Huddersfield and believed scorer Aaron Mooy should have been sent off before his goal.

The 25-year-old Australia international scored the solitary goal of the match ten minutes into the second half.

He received a yellow card just before half time after a tackle on Leeds midfielder Liam Bridcutt and Monk believed that it was a challenge worthy of a red.

Yorkshire Evening Post correspondent Phil Hay reported on Monk’s post match interview via his personal Twitter account and revealed the former Swansea manager’s verdict.

The Leeds boss also reflected on previous matches that the club had suffered defeats in and believed that his side is being punished for every mistake.

The Yorkshire giants have suffered four defeats from their opening six league games in the new campaign.

Saturday’s loss alongside defeats against Nottingham Forest, Birmingham and QPR have left the club languishing in 22nd place in the table..

During Monk’s short tenure in charge of the club the inexperienced manager has seen his side pick up four points with a victory over Sheffield Wednesday and a 1-1 stalemate against Fulham.

In other Leeds news, the Whites are preparing to appoint Francesco Marroccu as their new director of football.
