"We just don't seem to get the rub of the green in terms of decisions, that's for sure.

"I didn't think it was a penalty but I'm not going to condemn the referee because he has made his decision and we have to get on with it.

"I've not bothered speaking to him. If you say anything you only get criticised or fined and right now I need all the money I can get for the mortgage.

Over the two halves I think we deserved it, although the second half was much closer after being in total control in the first.

"But we showed our resilience to hang in there and get a result. Everybody has tried their hardest."

Lennie Lawrence

"After 20 minutes I'd have been delighted with a point, but at the end I wanted another 10 minutes and we'd have got the win - it was a moral victory for us.

"If things are going well for Leeds they knock it around and are difficult to cope with, but when they get forced back they are not so good.

"It looked like a clear-cut penalty to me. If it had happened in our box, I would have been looking away and praying we got away with it."
