It hardly seems right we took a point out of the previously 100% after three games league leaders and we find ourselves dumped at the bottom of the table, but at least we can’t get any lower, personally I thought they looked ordinary as we dominated them for large parts of the game even before they were reduced to 10 men, so a good point in my eyes that could and probably should have been all three.
