Remorseless Leeds prove equal to rigours of the Ricoh - Russell Thomas

Copy from Football Unlimited of 20/03/2006.

Leeds left it late here, just as they did the previous Saturday, but that is the story of their resurgent second half of the season. Kevin Blackwell looked mightily pleased with a point, especially after the news from Norwich. The time was right for the manager to dig out an old line: "They say it's not how you start, it's how you finish."

There was a chilling remorselessness to Leeds's second-half play, most appropriate on a day when the wind-buffeted Ricoh Arena became a new candidate for coldest football venue in the land. A calmly converted penalty by David Healy after much Coventry complaint two minutes from time sent the visiting hordes home with a glowing feeling.

Leeds can be well satisfied with a draw because it was extracted from one of the Championship's most improved teams, one that will help shape the play-off competition even if they do not reach the top six themselves. For Leeds, there is no rest in the pursuit of second place: they entertain Crystal Palace tomorrow night with the incentive of reducing the gap to a solitary point.
