Leeds United manager Daniel Farke spoke exclusively to LUTV following Friday’s draw with West Bromwich Albion at Elland Road.

The Whites came from behind to pick up a point against the Baggies, following a controversial opener, thanks to Luke Ayling’s second half header.

Farke was pleased with the performance, but felt his side should have taken all three points from the game.

“I just have compliments for my lads, I’m really happy with the workload that we put in.

“Obviously it was difficult circumstances during the week, but we played one of the contenders for promotion and West Brom’s youngest player was older than our average age in our whole squad, so this says a lot, we were up against a very experienced side.

“We were by far the better side, we had more possession, 15-3 shots and we should have won the game.

“Sometimes these things happen in football, in the first three league games we have conceded six shots on target and five goals.

“West Brom’s goal was handball and offside, if there was VAR it would have been ruled out.

“We created chance after chance, we hit the inside of the post and the ball went out, but this is football and these things happen.

“You have to show spirit, dig in and grind out results, I wish the lads could have been rewarded with the three points, but I like we are still unbeaten in home games.

“I love our attitude and mentality that we never know when we are beaten, we turned the game against an experienced side, completely.

“When we needed our supporters the most, they were there, the atmosphere was electric.”
