Leeds lapse frustrates Sam... i què??????


Sam Allardyce admitted he was "bitterly disappointed" to see his side once again let a result slip out of their hands at the Boleyn Ground.

The unchanged Hammers looked on course for a third straight win when Leeds United were able to break and make it 2-2 with just seconds remaining in normal time. It was hard to take, following on from the 1-0 defeat at home on the opening day by Cardiff City.

An early Carlton Cole strike, his second goal in as many starts, was cancelled out in the second half by Ross McCormack on the hour before a Patrick Kisnorbo own goal three minutes later restored the home advantage. Then, just as it looked like the Hammers, featuring John Carew as a second-half substitute, would hang on, Leeds equalised again through Adam Clayton's smash and grab raid.

Allardyce said: "We are bitterly disappointed because we came through the ebb and flow of a game where the quality had been very good. Both sides were trying to create on the attacking side, it ebbed and flowed.

"When Leeds had a good spell then we had to dig in. We overcame that and took control of the game again by making the substitutions we did. That got us back to 2-1 and we always looked likely to win the game maybe 3-1.

"We missed the chances and then right at the dying embers, instead of keeping the ball in the opposition half we needlessly gave it away."
