Steve Griffin made the long trip up north with the rest of the Thames Valley Whites and he gives us his fans view of the player`s performance in the 0-0 draw at Hull City.
An excellent game in which he made several saves during the first half that kept Leeds in the game. His best performance of the season and close to my man of the match.
Worked well in the back four but sometimes his passing can be woeful.
Lees 8 Star Man
Had a great game and made some excellent defensive tackles, always in the thick of it, my man of the match and his best performance of season so far.
Had a good game, contributed well with Lees but as the experienced PRO he needs to be more of the leader in the back four. Worked well with Lees.
Was frustrating to watch at times, giving needless balls away when we could have broken forward. He needs to be more confident on the ball.
Played well in the middle of the park and showed glimpses of his potential. Didn`t really in my book get to grips in dominating the midfield. Neil Warnock may yet get the best out of him, now he seems to be part of his plans.
Has flashes during games of recent but failed to step up to the mark at Hull. Another one of his off days.
Another good performance, all be it frustrating as he never seem to get the service. Ran his heart out for little reward. Needed to release the ball earlier as he kept losing it when trying to penetrate into the box.
Continued where he left off on Saturday, made some good attacking runs but then found himself isolated. Gives the crowd a lift when he has possession, will be prominent once he is fully match fit.
He did not get a lot of service and some of his dead ball kicks where less than impressive. Hull back four kept him in check.
He worked well playing off Webber but lacked chances. Less falling about this game and is starting to win his fair share of headers.
Contributed well off the ball, got himself into a few positions but was then overlooked by his teammates.
Overall, a good performance that showed we can now defend. Chased down all the second balls and competed well during the second half in midfield.
We failed to inflict any chances in the last third and I can`t even remember a clear shot on goal during the 90 minutes.
Neil Warnock has really tightened up things but we are now lacking a threat up front to score, three games now without a goal.
Hull were very organised and could have taken all 3 points in the first half if it was not for Lonergan pulling off some excellent saves.
A draw didn`t help either of us out in the league but still keeps us in touching distance if we can turn the positives of late into a winning streak. Blackpool did it once so why not us.
