John Heitinga believes Everton supporters deserve better after Tuesday's disappointing Capital One Cup exit at Leeds.


Sylvain Distin pulled one back late on but by that stage Everton were two goals down to a fourth-minute strike by Aidy White and a Rodolph Austin flick midway through the second half. Moyes' side pushed hard for a breakthrough with Marouane Fellaini and Victor Anichebe a threat, but Heitinga feels the game was lost before the interval. He added: "It was a big disappointment, we started really badly. We didn't play how we normally play and they scored an easy goal in the first couple of minutes. "After that the first half was them. We didn't create anything, there was no spirit. "In the second half you could see there was a different kind of way that we played with Felli up top behind Victor and we created some chances. "The second half was more of a contest but we lost the game in the first half. "We've got a good squad and sometimes you have games like this, it happens. Unfortunately we are out of the cup now and we need to focus on the next game on Saturday."
