A great game at Elland Road today, if I was been picky I'd say we should have won. But from 2-0 down it's a good point.

If you've missed today's match report you can catch it here.

Here are my ratings:

Paddy Kenny - 7

Paddy made some great saves in the first-half when Blackburn were pressing hard to grab a third goal. His kicking is exceptional and caused problems on the counter attack. Another solid performance from Paddy in the Leeds goal.

Lee Peltier - 5

For me this was Peltier's worst game since his move to Leeds but he will learn and move on. I personally feel his role in the first two goals was crucial, Diouf could have tracked more but Peltier as captain shouldn't have been that far out of position. As the game went on Peltier settled but for me still a poor first-half.

Tom Lees - 7

To say I'm not the biggest fan of Tom Lees he once again looked strong. His interceptions were spot on and he got up well to win plenty of headers.

Jason Pearce - 8

The one thing I've grown to love with Pearce is his love for a tackle. If there's any chance he can throw himself into a tackle he will and his ability in the air is second to none. Showed his ability and passion today on several occasions and marched forward to try find a winner.

Adam Drury - 7

A shaky start for Drury as he struggled at times but when Leeds dominated Drury was crucial as the last defender on many occasions. His crosses were accurate and he did well to intercept any counter attack from the Blackburn forwards.

David Norris - 6

After passing a late fitness test Norris did well to keep up with the proceedings. He tried his heart out once again, encouraged his fellow players but never got going today.

Rodolph Austin - 6

A difficult one to rate for me, but I thought Austin at times got caught for pace in the middle. His headers were solid and his typical tackles were on attendance when needed. Like Norris I didn't think he got going but not a bad display by all means.

El-Hadji Diouf - 7

Another weird one but after a poor first half Diouf turned it around with a crucial performance in the second-half. His goal in the first-half gave us a chance and his crosses and passes at times were first class. Has to work on his fitness though as his ability to track back cost him in the opening 45 minutes.

Luke Varney - 5

Varney's ability to jump for headers is unreal but today he struggled to do anything with it. His pace wasn't used at times to track back and he could have scored in the first half. Didn't really contribute to much going forward in the second half and for me should have been replaced by Byram earlier.

Ross McCormack - 8

Once again Ross proved his class in front of goal with a brilliant finish to pull it back to 2-2. His pace and runs caused chaos all day and the only criticism could be his deliveries from set-pieces.

Luciano Becchio - 8

At times Becchio comes under a lot of abuse from fans, sometimes it's justified when he throws himself on the floor and fails to control the ball. Today he was back to his best in front of goal, and caused problems for the Blackburn defenders with his power in the air. Great celebration too, ok funny not great.

As always you can have your say below.
