Midfielder Eunan O’Kane has revealed his despair after Leeds conceded a 91st-minute equaliser Championship strugglers Wigan.
Leeds seemed to have the game under control after a well-taken strike from target man Chris Wood.
However, midfielder Shaun MacDonald equalised for the Latics in the dying moments to earn a 1-1 draw for Gary Caldwell’s men.
O’Kane, who saw out the full 90 minutes at Elland Road on Tuesday night, revealed on his personal Twitter account that the Yorkshire giants must learn to score more goals when they are in the ascendancy.
Very disappointing to concede so late in the game. We have to learn to kill games off when we are on top. Simply weren't good enough!#MOT

The four-time Republic of Ireland international continued his impressive start to life in Yorkshire against Wigan, but was unable to help Monk’s men secure three points.
O’Kane played alongside young midfielder Kalvin Phillips in central midfield, as the Leeds academy product continues to fill in for captain Liam Bridcutt.
Known for his impressive engine, O’Kane saw out the full 90 minutes as Leeds held out Caldwell’s men until second-half injury time.
The former Torquay midfielder has been a mainstay in Monk’s side following his move from Premier League outfit Bournemouth, making eight appearances in all competitions.
The late draw against relegation threatened Wigan leaves Leeds three points adrift of the Championship playoffs, in 13th place.
A win against Walter Zenga’s Wolves on Saturday could see Leeds move to within touching distance of sixth placed Bristol City, if results go their way.
