McAllister on Leeds United Playoff Defeat

Leeds United boss Gary McAllister conceded that his side were below par as they crashed out of the League One playoff final with a dismal 1-0 defeat at the hands of Doncaster Rovers.

James Hayter was the man that fired Rovers into the Championship, with their goalkeeper, former Leeds United stopper Neil Sullivan rarely tested and McAllister moved quickly to accept that his side had been second best. Speaking to skysports.com he said:

“We huffed and puffed but lost a poor goal at a set-piece. We've defended set-pieces better than that in the past.

“Doncaster played well, we knew they'd come and pass the ball. We huffed and puffed but our quality wasn't there today.

“We didn't make Sully make a save today. There were a few near bets where we got in the box but our final ball in wasn't good enough.”

He finished with the most important bit for Leeds fans:

“The players will come back next season ready for it, with the stomach for it.”

Any comment from our friend and yours K Bates or is he still choking on his Champagne in the South of France. If Leeds can maintain the present team or strenghten it further next season they SHOULD go up, but then we said that about Notts Forest. Good luck.

Sorry the Notts Forest commented is with regards to previous seasons not the last one where they have now been promoted.

Not on form and Donny played really well. Controlled the game for long periods and then defended from the back in the 2nd half. Nobody was going to get past Neil Sullivan!!!
