Not a game that will live long in the memory, but with Brighton and Huddersfield both losing, we ended the weekend another point closer to our aim…

Were it not for Matt Ritchie having a goal ruled out (incorrectly) for offside, then it would have been three…

A strange sort of game…

Birmingham outplayed Leeds for the hour prior to Craig Gardner’s equaliser, 27 shots to 10 across the piece tells a story…

Leeds picked up the pace after that though, and their better finishing (and some woeful defending) won them the match…
