Leeds boss Marsch: I know fans frustrated with me

Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch says he understands fans wanting him out after defeat to Nottingham Forest.

Despite having 70 per cent possession, Leeds were denied by Keylor Navas - who made four crucial saves - to leave the visitors level on points with Everton.

"I'm almost in disbelief that we found a way to lose because for me, we're better in almost every phase. We controlled the match and we should win but right now, we are finding ways to lose and that's difficult to swallow," said Marsch.

Chants of 'Marsch out' and 'Jesse has to go' emanated from the away end as Leeds fell to their 10th defeat of the season.

Marsch has now won just two of his last 17 league games - the last manager to have such a run for Leeds was Howard Wilkinson in 1996.

Marsch took responsibility for their poor form and said: "It's my responsibility and I understand their frustration and doubts and I accept it. Internally we have belief here, we do. The players are all in, they give everything they have.

He went on to add: "I have to find a way to the good things which are happening into results or we find ourselves in a stressful situation."
