It was a bad day at the office for everyone at Leeds United on Saturday afternoon as they were beaten by Charlton Athletic at The Valley.
Macauley Bonne’s decision to be in the right place at the right time was enough to send Marcelo Bielsa’s back to Elland Road without a win in two games (Sky Sports).
In truth, it was a very disappointing afternoon for the Whites as they struggled to create any real clear cut chances throughout the match, although they did have some opportunities throughout the game (as per Through It All Together).
Not many of Bielsa’s side failed to have a real impact in the game, however Jack Harrison was one individual that tried to make something happen, although his performance appeared to lack a lot of the end product that was required.
According to stats compiled by WhoScored, the £3.6m-rated (Transfermarkt) winger managed to make four key passes out of the 33 he attempted to make (with a success rate of 75.8%), however his crossing made something left to be desired.
Making six crosses, the 22-year-old Manchester City loanee only managed to find his team-mates with two of them (WhoScored).
Despite some rather poor stats, he was the only one that looked likely to make anything as WhoScored’s detailed statistical data of the game appeared to infer.
Indeed, Through It All Together‘s player ratings were not necessarily kind to many of the players who were on the pitch at The Valley either, as they also took the opportunity to share some harsh truths regarding Harrison’s poor form at the moment – despite seemingly appearing to be a mainstay in Bielsa’s side (Transfermarkt).
Handing him a score of five, they wrote: “Following a promising summer and start to the season, Harrison has seemed to revert to his former self in recent matches; lacking in final product, poor decision making and struggling to make much of a positive impact lately.”
Indeed, it was a poor showing and there is no doubt that Harrison (as well as his team-mates) need to improve if they are to obtain promotion to the Premier League, however, at least the 22-year-old can go back to Elland Road knowing he at least put the effort in and tried to make a difference with a meaningful contribution.
