P. Entertaining game overall and three points.

N. Should have converted at least one of the chances created second half, which made it more uncomfortable than it should have been.

+ 3 Points 3 different scorers.

- Set-pieces at both ends. For the amount we get we should be more of a threat.

+ Another win.

- Conceding too many soft goals and missed chances.

The main positive there though is that Leicester and Ipswich certainly seem far more vulnerable than they did a few weeks back. Leicester have been shaky recently and scraped the 3 points today. Ipswich got battered second half by Coventry and have started to look far less impressive than earlier in the season. By contrast I feel we are getting stronger and I feel this side can still improve massively. Southampton seem to be the real dark horse as they seem to be getting the points albeit I haven't seen much of them but they seem to be finding ways to win rather than being particularly brilliant. Out of the 4 teams I would say we are the only ones who have got less points than we deserve as I can't really recall us getting any lucky points (even the last minute save by Messlier v Leicester only kept us the 3 points that we had thoroughly deserved).

Pos. Three points.
Neg. We are going to get an absolute pasting if we can't find a way to defend.

+ Another win keeping within touching distance of an auto.

- A second half of worry saved by a post, yet unable to add a fourth.

I think that we showed against Leicester that we can defend - that was a very professional display expecially keeping Vardy quiet. I rather think we play according to the opposition, Farke knew Boro would come to attack us and he was presumably confident we could outscore them.

All true - there is still plenty of hope, just not much room for error for us, feels like any result but a win is a disaster at the moment.

Didn't see the game as flying back from me jollies, so just going to go with:

+ Leeds won and Scum lost, so as Lou Reed sang; "Its such a perfect day".

- Changed my mind on the predictor from James to Rutter for the first scorer - grrrrrr!
