Garry Monk was not satisfied with his Leeds side after they edged past 10-man Rotherham with a 2-1 win on Saturday.
Leeds started the game in superb fashion, as Chris Wood and Souleymane Doukara put the Yorkshire giants 2-0 up.
However, Rotherham rallied and produced a late onslaught despite Leeds’ numerical advantage.
Posting on his personal Twitter account after the match, Monk revealed that it “was not the complete performance that we wanted”.

The Millers were reduced to 10 men after Peter Odemwingie elbowed Liam Cooper, which saw the former Stoke City and West Brom star shown a straight red card.
The late surge from the home side put Leeds’ win in doubt as Richard Wood grabbed a goal back for the Championship’s rock-bottom side.
Leeds survived despite a late goal-mouth scramble to secure the win, which handed the former Premier League side secure their eighth Championship win in 11 games.
Now in fifth, Leeds have turned their season around after starting the season in dismal fashion that saw them almost slip into the relegation zone.
But Wood’s 12th goal of the season, and Doukara’s second in four games, means Monk’s side have leapfrog the likes of Norwich, Huddersfield and Sheffield Wednesday.
Leeds next face a huge uphill task on Tuesday, as they travel to Anfield to face Liverpool in the quarter finals of the EFL Cup.
