LUFC Warnock frustrated as more points thrown away
Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says he was delighted with the performance at Leicester City but he was left disappointed with the fact that they once again threw points away.
Leeds looked to be heading for a crucial three points at one of their play-off rivals thanks to a Sam Byram goal early in the second half.
It looked like they were heading for a fourth clean sheet in a row but all their hard work was undone deep into injury time when Michael Keane equalised for the home side and Warnock felt they did not deserve to concede and he was frustrated by more points being thrown away.
Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post , Warnock said, "Anyone can beat anyone in this league but we`ve thrown points away. This game, Wolves away, Middlesbrough away last month - we`ve thrown points away left, right and centre these last few weeks.
"We played some great football and it was a great team performance.
"All round I was delighted. Leicester and Nigel will be very pleased to come out of that with a point and we`re bound to be disappointed. We didn`t deserve to concede."
The draw sees Leeds remain six points off a play-off place after Brighton drew 0-0 at Bristol City.
Middlesbrough lost at Huddersfield Town to miss the chance to climb into the top six.
Nottingham Forest and Bolton Wanderers both continued their recent good form with late winners to move closer to a play-off place.
A point may have been seen as a good result before kick-off but it was a chance missed, to not only move to within four points of Brighton but also move to within five points of Leicester in fifth place.
Leeds must now try to claim three points when they travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday, who moved to within two points of an automatic promotion place with a 4-2 home win over fellow promotion hopefuls Hull City at Selhurst Park on Tuesday night.
The whites will have just eleven games remaining, starting with the trip to Crystal Palace at the weekend and they must improve on their away record.
Leeds have won just three of their eighteen games on the road so far this season and they will need at least two wins from their final five away games, as well as keeping up their impressive home form, to have any chance of getting into the top six.
