Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell praised the character of his players and was pleased to see his players patience rewarded after Tuesday's 2-1 defeat of Watford.
'We sat down and had a chat at half-time but character is not an issue with these players,' he told the club's website. “They have shown that in abundance and have come back time after time and shown resilience when they need to. “We came out and the first twenty minutes of the second half we were awesome and the crowd really got up for it,” added Blackwell.
Speaking of the two Watford dismissals, Blackwell praised the way Hulse read Jordan Stewart's backpass when Ben Foster brought the forward down and added that Darius Henderson could have now complaints. 'Rob Hulse did brilliantly to read the backpass, the keeper came out and brought him down and we knew he was off. “Henderson raised an elbow and if you do that you're gone so I don't think there can be any complaints about the red cards,” said Blackwell.
On summing up the match, Blackwell said he was he was pleased to see his side's patience rewarded. 'We kept our patience and that was a pleasing thing for me because sure enough we got our reward in the end.'
