Been too much space between the strikers and midfield since Adryan went off.

Morison's a bit of a lump, not much grace to his game.

Agree there, lots of positives. Byram and Cook have been outstanding.

Still letting crosses in though. Assombalonga puts a header wide.

Silvestri would have had it if it were on target.

Very lucky to have got away with the offside goals, but I'm glad to get a point there

Either team could have won that but we didn't deserve to.

Decent point in the circumstances but we didn't play well.

I think we need to find a long term replacement for Warnock, he's running out of steam on about 60/70 mins lately and, as good as he's been this season, I don't think he's got another in him...

What's happened to Charlie Taylor? He looked really good when he came on against Bolton and I would have thought Redders would have given him a chance by now.

Pleased with that second half, though we were very fortunate not to be 3 down by the time we got that penalty with both Fryatt's disallowed goals being onside for me.

A lot of them do, Mowatt looked knackered towards the end of the first half.

Cook kept going well, looked stronger as the game went on

I thought we played well the second half, we got lucky with the disallowed goals, but we had chances as well. Good point at a good side away.
When the ball hits the goal, it's not Shearer or Cole, it's ...... Antenucci.

Only 17, pure class that lad. Hope we don't ruin him!

He seemed to be doing a lot of running to be fair. Warnock has broken down twice with injuries now though.

Got the official MOTM apparently and well deserved too. I'm still amazed that he's only 17. They said on the commentary that he broken into the u-18s at 13 which I didn't know!

Could do with him attracting less attention when he's on telly though :lol:

And for all of his pace and running at the defence, it would seem that he does not even break into a sweat.
Cool player.

There's no luck in it mate, the linesmen are only human, the insistence of not having replays like in rugby that can be sorted in the time the ball is collected out of the net, means there are thousands of good goals a year disallowed, the technology is there. To think football is supposed to be an entertainment, we blow off goal after goal it's a joke.

Well yes, and I think it's inevitable it will come in. But we have to deal with the situation we are in now, and today we got lucky. Many a time it's gone against us too of course.

I like the sound of young Cook AND I'd like him to stay.
Is he a Leeds (or at least somewhere local) lad does anyone know please?

Been reporting all season Pearce is poor......he looked good in McDermott's hoof team but truth be known he has never been that good !
