Too Much Turkey for Wise’s Men

Too Much Turkey for Wise’s Men

Leeds United boss Dennis Wise was relatively pleased as Jermaine Beckford’s late goal once again rescued a point for Leeds as defeat looked likely.

The point ensures that Leeds remain well and truly in the hunt for top spot in League One, a position currently held by Swansea City. The Welsh side stand 3 points ahead of the Whites, however have the added bonus of two games in hand over Wise’s men, and one over 2nd placed Nottingham Forest.

Speaking to the official Leeds United site Wise said: 'In the first half we did not play at all. It looked like a case of too many christmas puds and dinners. We just weren't at the races.

'We had prepared for the game - we had worked hard on Christmas Eve on how they would play and their set-pieces - but I don't think mentally a few of the lads had prepared which was disappointing.'

'We got a point and we're pleased with that, but we're not pleased with performance.

'Looking at the game overall, we had a lot more chances and we didn't perform well, so the fact we got a point is a plus, but there weren't many plusses to take away. It's all about results though.'
