LUFC Warnock takes blame for draw

LUFC Warnock takes blame for draw

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock was left disappointed to only come away with a point in a 2-2 draw at Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday night.

The Leeds boss, felt it showed how far the side have come this season, in what was a difficult fixture. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "It was a hard earned point. When you come to Bolton and you are disappointed to only get a point, I think it sums up the dressing room.

"We have come a long way this season to be disappointed with a point at Bolton."

Striker Kevin Davies was the thorn in the Leeds side, scoring twice with headers from set pieces and Warnock admits he probably made a mistake asking Rodolph Austin to mark the former England international. "The two goals were probably down to me. I gave Rodolph Austin, Kevin Davies to mark because he didn`t know him and he just couldn`t cope with him," added Warnock.

Bolton dominated for much of the first half and could have quite easily have been out of sight in the opening half hour of the game but only had Davies header to show for all their domination.

Chris Eagles hit a post and Benik Afobe missed the target when in behind the Leeds defence.

Leeds grew into the game as the half wore on and youngster Sam Byram continues with his great start to the season.

He came close to equalising for Leeds when he shot just wide and he did bring the sides level with a deft glancing header on the stroke of half time.

Bolton must have gone in deflated at half time after having so much of the ball and it was made worse for them when Leeds took the lead early in the second half.

Luciano Becchio scored his eighth goal of the season from the penalty spot after Byram had been fouled in the area.

Leeds looked like they were going to hang on for what would have been a fantastic three points but that man Davies once again used his strength in the area to outmuscle Austin and head past Paddy Kenny.

The draw extends Leeds unbeaten run in the championship to three games and they now face Barnsley at Elland Road before they can look forward to a well-earned break during the internationals.
