Simon Grayson was reasonably happy with the point his side gained in the West Yorkshire derby at Huddersfield Town.
In a pulsating game that swung both ways, Grayson said on Yorkshire Radio, ‘It was a great game and it’s a great advert for League One.”
Leeds went in at half time 1-0 down after a deflected Antony Pilkington shot gave Casper Ankergren no chance.
The Whites fought back in the second half and two goals in six minutes by Jon Howson and Luciano Becchio gave Leeds the lead.
Huddersfield claimed a point inside the ten minutes when Gary Roberts latched onto a deep cross to side foot his effort into the corner of the net.
Despite the late equaliser, Grayson was still happy with the point, “I think I’m probably the happier of the two managers. We wanted to win the match and we went out there to do that, but it’s another point.” Continued Grayson.
With Colchester losing and Swindon also drawing, the point was enough for Leeds to extend their advantage in the final automatic spot to four points over Charlton who won last night and Leeds still have a game in hand.
