Kyle Bartley: Leeds must do this after Wigan disappointment
By Amir Mir
Kyle Bartley believes the Wigan result on Tuesday night will not look so bad if Leeds pick up three points against Wolves on Saturday afternoon.
Garry Monk’s side conceded a late equaliser against the Latics when Shaun McDonald scored a stoppage time goal at Elland Road in midweek.
Centre-back Bartley, who played the whole 90 minutes in defence and is the stand-in skipper for the Yorkshire side, was annoyed at the midweek result.
But the on-loan Swansea defender insisted that his side pick up three points at Molineux at the weekend to make up for the late equalising goal in midweek.
“I was angry at the final whistle,” said Bartley, as quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post. “It’s two points dropped, as simple as that. We have to learn and make sure that if we’re in the same position we’re a bit more ruthless.

“Wolves is a big game now. We can’t dwell on Tuesday. It was a big disappointment but we have to put that behind us.
“We need to go to Molineux and get three points. If we do that, a point (against Wigan) doesn’t look too bad.”
Monk’s side have picked up 17 points from 13 games this season, as they aim to earn promotion to the Premier League for the first time in 12 years.
Former Premier League manager Monk was appointed manager of the Elland Road club by controversial owner Massimo Cellino.
The former Swansea manager has picked up five wins, two draws and recorded six losses during his 13-games at the Yorkshire outfit.
