Leeds United fans took to Twitter to lay into Caleb Ekuban for his performance in their team’s 2-0 Championship defeat to Fulham at Craven Cottage on Tuesday night.

The striker was selected as a lone spearhead of the attack as manager Paul Heckingbottom’s one change from the side that beat Bolton Wanderers on Good Friday was Samuel Saiz in place of Pierre-Michel Lasogga.

Ekuban spurned an excellent one-on-one chance when Leeds were a goal down and manager Paul Heckingbottom admitted afterwards that he needs to improve his finishing.

The Ghanian-born front man was replaced by Lasogga after 72 minutes, but Leeds were already 2-0 down at that point through goals from Kevin McDonald and Aleksandar Mitrovic.

United have dropped to 13th in the Championship table and are 10 points adrift of the final play-off spot, as they are almost certainly condemned to another campaign in the second tier.

Leeds supporters were extremely critical of Ekuban, who they feel lacks the quality to be the first-choice striker at a team with promotion ambitions.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
