Neil Warnock's Charlton verdict...
United manager Neil Warnock admitted he was glad to pick up a point against Charlton at Elland Road on Tuesday after what he described as "a poor performance."
David Norris's first league goal for the club had given United the lead, but Charlton levelled in the second half and the visitors could have stolen all three points late on, with Paddy Kenny making a couple of vital saves right at the death.
"It was a good point in the end," grimaced the boss. "The way we played we did well to get a point. We were that poor.
"When I look at the whole game it was there to win. But we didn't have a spark, the crowd didn't have a spark and it was flat. I don't know why that was, maybe people were still flat after the weekend. We could have moved it about a lot quicker, we were lethargic in a lot of departments.
"Norris took his goal well. There was no backlift on it. I just wish we could have gone on and won, I thought we could, but in the end we were hanging on for a point."
With injuries digging into his side, both Lee Peltier and Rodolph Austin missed out, while Michael Tonge and Aidy White were both on the bench, the boss had made four changes from the side which drew 1-1 at Sheffield Wednesday on Friday.
"It would have been nice to have left it as it was," he said. "Michael Tonge was struggling with his shoulder, but in the end we probably missed his quick passing and Aidy's enthusiasm.
"I said to them all afterwards 'you've got a point tonight lads, we'll done.' It was that bad. We'll have more zip about us on Saturday against Birmingham and we can't be that bad again.
"The one thing is, we'd probably have lost the game last year, but I'm still disappointed we didn't win."
