We’ve seen it before of course. A great chance to take the lead is cleared off the line and almost immediately a counter attack puts us behind. It has to be said Leeds got back into the game and looked the more assured for much of this match.
Pete Sixsmith was there and as he always does sends us his seven word verdict as soon as the referee blows the final whistle.
