Dyer’s like Henry

"I thought it was going to be a tricky game for us. It was at 3pm but just after four it was a little bit different.

"We've done well yet again after coming back following an European match. We don't seem to let it affect us.

"In the second half we were outstanding, but we squandered some late chances. If it had been 0-0 late on and we had done that then I would have been pulling my hair out.

"I'm surprised he (Dyer) doesn't score more in the league because he gets into some great positions, but he just doesn't put it past the keeper.

"But he has done it three times today, although he hit the post with the third effort. His second goal was beautifully taken. It was the sort of goal you would see Robbie Fowler or Thierry Henry take. He made it look easy when it wasn't.

"But his runs were unbelievable. He saw more of the ball than anybody else and I just don't know where he gets all his energy from.

"He deserved a hat-trick and Leeds couldn't hang onto him. But he has to learn to put that ball past the keeper more."

Eddie Gray

"For 45 minutes we competed reasonably well, but when the second goal went in it was disappointing to see heads go down and they then took complete control of the game.

"It's a lesson for our lads because if we want to get back to the top this is the type of team we have to compete with and in the second half we didn't do that."
