Leeds United first team coach Glynn Snodin declared it a good point after Leeds equalised in the second half to earn a point against ten men Crystal Palace.
Leeds trailed inside ten minutes when the Leeds players backed off Chris Martin allowing him to beat Andy Lonergan from the edge of the area.
Palace goalkeeper Juliano Speroni then made two excellent saves to deny Adam Clayton and Tom Lees in quick succession as Leeds settled into the game.
The game changed on the stroke of half time when Sean Scannell was sent off for a second yellow card for Palace after he tripped Danny Pugh.
Despite the one man advantage four forty-five minutes, Leeds could only manage one goal from substitute Robert Snodgrass but Snodin felt it was a good point.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Snodin said, "They came out firing in the first 10 minutes and went 1-0 up.
"They`d done that to us last season too and at the end of the day it was a good point."
Leeds had plenty of possession in the second half and lacked a cutting edge in the final third.
Luciano Becchio was starting his ninth game in the last ten but looks a shadow of the player who has endeared himself to the Leeds faithful during his first three seasons with the club.
Becchio has netted just three times so far this season in twenty-three appearances and his never say die, hardworking displays have yet to be seen this season.
Leeds also lacked a quality ball into the middle, something Snodin also commented on, "The quality probably wasn`t there at the end of it all.
"You work hard to get up to the 18-yard line and when you get there you want quality balls into the box.
"But it`s only right to say that they`ve got quality defenders, and they got bodies in the box. They did their jobs as well," continued Snodin.
Leeds are still waiting for international clearance for American international winger Robbie Rogers. They are also rumoured to be giving a trial to another winger Craig Jones from Welsh Premier League side TNS.
