3 Points dropped but not unexpected

Leeds dropped three points away to Burnley last night but the result was not unexpected given the relative positions of the two teams going into the game.

Perhaps the critical moment in the game came when Hayden Fox (who is rumoured to be being offered a longer contract) was sent off early in the second half. Goals from Gifton Noel-Williams and Andrew Gray put Burnley 2-0 up although David Healy pulled one back late on as the game finished 2-1 to Burnley

Despite the defeat the consensus on the message boards seemed to be that this was the best we have played for quite some time. Heart, passion, commitment and skill was shown by the team as a whole.

Dennis Wise was quoted as follows “"There was nothing between the sides, we competed well, we knew we would frustrate them and we did frustrate them. The lads worked very hard and believed they could get something out of it even at 2-0 down.”

Also worth bearing in mind that as recently as six weeks ago or so this would have been a 5-0 or 5-1 defeat!!
