Better Stats this match. Despite 47% possession we were equal with Attempts on target. Just a shame our defence couldn't be as good as our attack.

Good job the Ref protected you should have given 2 Pens against you and Fomica should have been off

Sorry that's rubbish, first of all a sending off for Formica would have been harsh even for that Ref's shocking performance. And after that, a better ref wouldn't have let either of Leeds first 2 goals, clear fouls which we would have never heard the end of from whinging Warnock if it was the other way around - 'oh, always me, always punishing Neil Warnock'. And the penalties?! No chance, one of the appeals that Warnock nearly had a clutcher for was a handball that smacked Olsson squarley on the back!! The many other ridiculous claims I didn't get a good view of (to quote Wenger) so I'll just go with the TV pundits that said they didn't know what Leeds were appealing for... More importantly, 40 mins of dominating that was better than I could have hoped for from the Rovers. Great football. Shame as Leeds hadn't threatened till their goal. Encouraging, just need Murphy to calm everyone down and keep composed. Rhodes looked impressive despite poor service in final third, held ball up well. But all in all some work to do in defence, Kean. I'm disappointed for Leeds fans, not for the result obviously but they were always a good footballing side. Now their typically a Warnock side which is long ball, Stock/Allardyce football with an added dirty play bonus and a cheating Diouf (bless him - the tool!)

Haha, loving this complete and utter nonsense coming from the weeds fans. clear fouls on our players leading up to two of there goals. very lucky indeed. But how many times are we going to led a lead slip once keanochio has his wicked way at half time.

Formica was booked for a foul tackle, yellow card, next kicking the ball away is also a yellow card but the Ref bottled it.
