LUFC Pearce - We were not at our best
Leeds United defender Jason Pearce admitted that the side were not at their best in the draw with Birmingham City at Elland Road on Saturday.
Leeds trailed at half time but came back to earn a replay thanks to another goal from Luciano Becchio, his nineteenth of the season.
Pearce was happy with how Leeds came back into the game after a disappointing first half performance and he said the players showed grit and determination to get back into the game.
Speaking on LUTV, Pearce said, "It was a tough game. Birmingham came here and they played some good stuff in the first half.
"We were a bit disappointed going in at half time. I think we showed good determination and a bit of pride in the second half and got back into the game. We could have quite easily have won it but I think a draw was a fair result.
"I don`t think we were at our best today but we showed grit and determination to get a result."
The defender who signed from Portsmouth in the summer is still waiting for his first goal in a Leeds shirt and he came close to breaking his duck in the first half when he saw an effort come back off the post.
