'Ruthless', 'What we need': Leeds fans deliver verdict on Heckingbottom after Derby decision

Leeds United drew for the second game in a row as they got a share of the spoils in a 2-2 result with Derby County in the Championship on Wednesday night.
The Rams scored a dramatic late equaliser deep into stoppage time to ensure Paul Heckingbottom’s side gained one point from the game instead of three.
Two draws and one defeat have meant that since the ex-Barnsley boss took over, the Whites are yet to taste victory.
In fact, not since boxing day have Leeds won in the Championship.
Such a run of results has meant that the Yorkshire outfit have dropped away from the play off places in the league and are now eight points off the top six spots.
Despite the dire form the side find themselves in, that didn’t stop Pablo Hernandez having hopes of hunting down the teams at the pinnacle and believes a run of ten straight league wins would get them where they wanted to be.
And after the game supporters were eager to point out Heckingbottom’s ruthlessness in, particularly regarding the decision to, first of all, give Eunan O’Kane the captain’s armband in his first game in charge, then hand it to Hernandez in his second game, whilst in the third O’Kane wasn’t even named in the squad.
Here is a selection of Twitter responses following the game:
