LUFC Leeds fans view v Blackburn Rovers

LUFC Leeds fans view v Blackburn Rovers

Tiny T gives us his usual fans view from the game at Elland Road.

This time he rates the players after the 3-3 draw with Blackburn Rovers.

Kenny 7
Ball went under him for the first goal. He had no chance with the other two. Otherwise a decent game.

Peltier 4
Along with Diouf, he was at fault for the first and second goals. He did not seem to be at the races for long periods.

Lees 7
Strong game for me, ended up trying to cover his captain as well, him and Pearce have a good understanding.

Pearce 7
Like his partner solid and dependable and he was unlucky to have a goal disallowed.

Drury 7
Nothing much gets round him, though he does not venture over the halfway line much.

Varney 3
He has been carried for a number of games, wins the odd header but offers little going forward.

Austin 8 Star man
Our Dark Destroyer in the middle of the park and he loves to get stuck in. He rolled his sleeves up when we went behind and looked shattered at the end.

Norris 7
Quietly efficient. He doesn't seem to do much but always in the thick of it.

Diouf 7
With Peltier, he was at fault for the opening goals. He scored and should have been a hero at the end, how did he miss. After the first 20 minutes, his touch improved and when he moved to the left he looked better.

McCormack 6
Better second half when we were on top, cracking goal to bring us level.

Becchio 6
Tough game up top but stuck at it and got his now usual goal. Much fitter now and it shows.

Subs
Byram not on long enough.

Summary
Where do I start? Poor defending on the right left us two down. A Ping-Pong goal got us back in it and after half time we have had it sown up, such is life at Elland Road.

At 2-0 down, we looked down and out but got a break before half time and the Blackburn defence wilted under the pressure in the second half. McCormack`s was a cracking goal.

How Diouf missed at the end, god alone only knows.
The referee was appalling, missed a penalty in each half for us, should have sent Formica off when he was on a booking and he kicked the ball away. Any other game it is another yellow. He disallowed what seemed a perfectly good Pearce goal. Decision for the free kick that led to their equaliser was a joke. He gave it to us then changed his mind. He should stick to the premiership.
