Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to annihilate Cameron Borthwick-Jackson for his performance in the 2-1 shock defeat to Newport County at Rodney Parade on Sunday.
Thomas Christiansen’s men let slip of a first-half lead created by Gateano Berardi’s long-range strike to concede twice in the space of a few minutes before Samuel Saiz was shown a straight red card.
Borthwick-Jackson, 20, was drafted in to start his first game since October when he was picked to play at left-back against the League Two side.
However the Manchester United loanee did very little to show Christiansen that he deserves more chances than he is getting in the first-team with a lacklustre outing where he at times failed to cope with the Newport attack.
One angry fan labelled the Leeds fringe player as “utter garbage” for his dire performance.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
CBJ is utter garbage

Borthwick-Jackson is the most lethargic defender I’ve ever witnessed. Completely disinterested

Borthwick-Jackson made his sixth appearance of the season for Leeds against Newport – however only one of them has come in the Championship.
He was recalled from a loan spell at Wolves last season after barely playing, and it seems that the Leeds fans will not be too bothered if Man United recall him yet again this month.
In other Leeds United news, this Elland Road striker could be sidelined until March after suffering a major injury blow.
