Lennie gave players half time rollicking

We had a rollicking at half-time. I'm not going to repeat what was said, but we needed it," Thorne told the Western Mail.

"We started the match terribly. It was the worst we've started for a long time.

"The gaffer tore into us at half-time, but what he said needed to be said and I think it worked."

City were rampant in then second half with Thorne scoring the equaliser from the penalty spot. At the end City were left to rue not picking up all three points while Leeds were glad to hear the final whistle.
