Leeds United fans were left raging over the display of right back Luke Ayling after they managed to snatch a 2-1 win away to Burton Albion on Boxing Day.
The Whites made a bright start but were the first to concede, Tom Naylor netting after a drilled cross to send the home side into half time 1-0 up.
However Thomas Christiansen’s men managed to turn the game on its head, Pablo Hernandez converting an excellently struck free kick to level the scores, before Kemar Roofe broke through the Burton defence after a Ronaldo Vieira through ball to strike home the winning goal.
However, despite having secured their fourth consecutive win and three points which boosts their play off hopes, the Leeds faithful were less than impressed with what they saw from Ayling in the display, turning to Twitter to voice their anger at the first team stalwart’s display.
Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters best tweets:
Still think Ayling has been below par last few games

Or Anita RB played there for Newcastle last season. I like Ayling but maybe he needs a rest
— Neil Summers (@neilyboy1919) December 26, 2017
id be tempted to stick Berardi back at RB cos Ayling is looking very dodgy at times past few matches.

O'Kane showing why he was dropped. Ayling showing why he should be. The rest of the team not doing much better

TC has ruined Ayling-from brilliance to cartoon defender #LUFC

Ayling has been Christiansen’s first choice right back this season, appearing in every minute of the club’s 24 league games, taking the captain’s armband on four occasions in the absence of Liam Cooper.
He has a total of 70 appearances under his belt for Leeds, with five assists to his name, one of those coming during the current campaign.
In other Leeds United news, the club should forget Matthew Pennington and focus on signing this Premier League stalwart available for a bargain.
