Leeds player ratings v Barnsley: Attacker is 3/10
By Dominic Toner
Football Insider rates the Leeds players after their 3-2 defeat against Barnsley in the Championship on Saturday.
Rob Green 5 – The veteran goalkeeper conceded three goals, but can’t be directly blamed for three good strikes. Made a couple of good saves during the match.
Lewie Coyle 4 – The right-back struggled against Barnsley and was turned too easily by Ryan Kent when he scored. He looked out of his depth and the 21-year-old was unable to replicate the performance he showed against Derby.
Kyle Bartley 6 – He remains the most consistent performer in the Leeds defence, but even he was severely tested on Saturday evening.
Luke Ayling 6 – The make-shift centre-back was involved in a tough battle with Adam Armstrong and he is more effective as a right-back.

Gaetano Berardi 6 – He has filled in well during Charlie Taylor’s absence, but wasn’t the most convincing against Barnsley.
Liam Bridcutt 6 – The combative midfielder made some good tackles, but was unable to dictate possession as he normally does.
Ronaldo Vieira 4 – The youngster was outfought in the centre of midfield and struggled against a tenacious Barnsley outfit.
Kemar Roofe 5 – The wide man couldn’t link up with Chris Wood and was unable to use his pace to full effect.
Pablo Hernandez 6 – The Spaniard got the assist with his corner for Chris Wood’s goal and was very consistent from the set pieces. However, was unable to pull the strings like he has in so many games this season.
Souleymane Doukara 3 – The attacker was unable to influence the game and was invisible for the most part. He was extremely sloppy in possession and gave the ball away on numerous occasions.
Chris Wood 9 – The striker has now netted 19 goals this season is in immaculate form. He opened the scoring with a good finish from a corner as he made a smart run away from a defender.
Eunan O’Kane (for Vieira 58mins) 6
Stuart Dallas (for Bridcutt 84mins) 6
