Leeds United boss Simon Grayson said that not getting a second goal along with taking their foot off the gas was the downfall which led to Coventry City snatching a point in a 1-1 draw at Elland Road.

Speaking to the Press Association, Grayson said;  "We took our foot off the gas. We just didn't keep hold of the ball enough or work them hard enough.

"We had enough chances. The second goal is always vital in any game, but unfortunately we couldn't get it."

Grayson also added that keeper Paul Rachubka who pushed a Cyrus Christie stoppage time cross into the path of Richard Wood to give City a point was distraught in the dressing room afterwards.

Grayson said; "Goalkeeper is a position where you make a mistake and you get punished. He won't let me down again. It's just one of those things.

"His head is in his hands, but he'll pick himself up. He'll be fine, I've no problems with him.

"Andy Lonergan will be out for six weeks after having an operation on his finger.

"It's a blow to the lad because he's been outstanding and it's a blow for the team, but I've a good, capable keeper to stand in."
