Leeds United Drew a blank this afternoon in a rather dull encounter against Middlesborough.
The home side had the better of the chances with loaner Leed keeper, Butland pulling out a man if the match performance for two good saves, but it is evidence of how poor the game was if a keeper is acclaimed for two acts. That takes nothing away from him, it was a good performance.
Leeds failed to find any real spark, and although the defence stood up well all things considered, the midfield was largely redundant, both in creativity and effort, and Leeds were limited to a couple of long range shots.
Kebe saw plenty of the ball but either got rid quickly or failed to control well, and Stewart was quiet, but looked dangerous on the few occasions he touched the ball. In the midfield, Murphy and Austin looked tired and a yard off the pace all match.
Up front, Hunt and McCormack worked hard but didn't feed well of each other And failed to put Miiddlesborough under any real pressure.
It was a disappointing performance all things considered, and will be seen by many as two points dropped rather than one point gained.
