Grayson happy with point

Published Add your comment

Simon Grayson admitted neither Leeds or Charlton deserved all three points as the League One high-flyers battled out a goalless draw at Elland Road.

Grayson was left to rue an injury to striker Luciano Becchio - who was taken to hospital for a precautionary ankle X-Ray - but admitted both sides struggled in difficult conditions.

"A draw was probably the right result," he said. "It was a difficult afternoon for both teams in the swirling wind. In any game between the top two teams, players get a bit nervous and anxious because they don't want to make a mistake."

Grayson added: "It was always going to be a close game - we caused them problems, especially in the first half, and they caused us problems, but we kept a clean sheet and I was delighted about that.

"Maybe the quality dipped slightly compared with our performances in recent weeks, but it is good to sit here knowing we are the only unbeaten team in the country."
