Didz felt Town deserved more than just a share of the spoils at Elland Road as McCormack penalty holds Blues

David McGoldrick was happy to see Town take a point from Elland Road, although argued that Blues could have warranted all three against Leeds United.

The striker was again on the scoresheet for Mick McCarthy’s side, firing Town in front with a long range effort that crept under the body of Whites stopper, Paddy Kenny.

However the lead lasted just five minutes, as Ross McCormack levelled things up from the penalty spot after Luke Chambers was alleged to have pulled back Cameron Stewart in the area.

Didz was happy enough to build on Town’s win over Reading with another point tonight, ahead of what is a busy week for the Blues as Bolton visit Portman Road on Saturday.

“I think any point gained at Elland Road is a good point, even though we probably had enough chances to win the game,” Didz told the Club website.

“We were confident going into the game following the win over Reading and I think we showed that in our play right from the off, as we took the game to Leeds.

“We took the lead thanks to my goal but unfortunately we couldn’t hold that lead for too long, but we’ve still shown good character to dig in as their crowd got behind them.

“I was pleased to get back on the scoresheet with my goal and it’s like the old saying, ‘if you don’t shoot you don’t score!’

“It puts me onto 14 for the season and I’m pleased with that on a personal level. I don’t set myself any targets though and the main goal for me is to be performing well for the team.

“Overall it’s a good point tonight and this is an important week for us. We’ve taken four points from our last two games and we want to extend that tally against Bolton on Saturday.”
