Leeds left Brighton with a point on Friday night, below are some quotes from both managers following the game.

Neil Warnock:

"Varney got pushed, he did not dive. Gus is not happy because he wants to win a game of football.

The referee didn't get much wrong. He's done well. It was a quick game.

This match shows what the Championship is all about. It was a superb point for us. We were pummelled in the first 20 minutes and it showed that we put so much work into our previous cup tie against Southampton.
But all credit to us: we showed a never-say-die attitude and came back strongly in the first half.

It was a great game to watch, Brighton looked a really strong outfit. We more than played our part and there are no easy matches in the Championship."

Gus Poyet:

"The referee was too nice. He gave a penalty that was not and also kept a player on the pitch who should not have been there, and who then scored the equaliser.

He (Warnock) is a hypocrite.

He is on the list of hypocrites now. He's funny, Mr Warnock. Very funny. You cannot go one way only when it suits you.

Then there is Mr Brown who had a fantastic game but he shouldn't have been on the pitch, and everybody knows that. You cannot be nice if you are refereeing. Everybody talks about the refs but they don't look at themselves.

It was a decent Leeds team but we didn't do enough to beat them. I hope we get a win soon or I will be pulling out my hair."
