I’m still on a high, as the game did become entertaining in the last few minutes, but I can’t say the same for probably the previous eighty minutes.
I believe Steve Bruce was playing this one with view not to lose, as was suggested by his “we’re tough to beat” comments of late.
And it was working well, as we subdued them, while not causing any real threat on our part.
But wow, it was tedious for the most part.
We created nothing in all and when Leeds had a chance from a set piece, so they scored.
You might think it was only fair that we reciprocated and indeed we did, as Gestede threatened in the box and caused a penalty via a handball, just after he’d come on.
Kodjia duly converted to give us a point, but I have to hold my hands up and say I don’t think we deserved it.
In what was a canny game on both sides, I feel Leeds were overall better, as they hit the woodwork twice, with the second effort being almost miraculous that they didn’t score.
I have to think harder about Bruce’s tactics for this game, but the truth is I think he got it wrong every way you care to think.
Players seemed to be played out of position and I’m sure it was some kind of a test to see if they can apply his instructions.
If that’s so, I can live with it.
But that wasn’t pleasant viewing and after that, Leeds will finish above us comfortably.
