LUFC Grayson - We didn't play well enough

LUFC Grayson - We didn't play well enough

Simon Grayson was happy to see his side claim all three points but he was less than happy with the performance, especially in the first half.

Leeds came from behind at half time to secure all three points with two late goals from Robert Snodgrass but Grayson admits it could have been all over by half time.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, "In terms of the performance, we didn`t play well enough. First half we were disappointing with and without the ball. We didn`t put them under enough pressure, we weren`t closing them down all over the pitch, they were dominating us, we didn`t pass the ball well enough as well, and we kept giving it away cheaply.

We changed it around at half time, we spoke to the players and spoke to them in the harsh manner we needed to. We needed do something different, we needed to be more positive and up the tempo and we did that second half.

At half time we still felt we were well and truly still in the game, even though we could have been dead and buried the way that we had played and the way we had defended as a team and we didn`t look like the team that had played against Leicester.

Leeds had just a Ross McCormack free kick that forced a save out of Burnley goalkeeper Lee Grant for their first half. Grant was lucky to still be on the pitch after the officials missed a deliberate handball outside the area.

At the other end Jay Rodriguez had given the hosts an early lead and only a string of fine saves by on loan goalkeeper Alex McCarthy kept Leeds in the game at the break.

Leeds repeated their comeback of last season when they came back from two goals behind at half time. Leeds had hardly looked like scoring until Snodgrass scored twice in the final fourteen minutes when he twice found himself unmarked at the far post.
