Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has declared himself disappointed but proud after Leeds' 3-3 draw with Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

United showed heart and resilience to come back from 2-0 down, only to concede late on after being 3-2 up. The Whites could have gone 4-2 up, but a Jason Pearce header was ruled out for an apparent foul by the centre-half.

Despite his frustration at losing two points, Warnock praised his players for their effort to fight back.

"I was disappointed to be in that situation at the end. I used the phrase that Shankly always said 'referees know the laws, but they don't always know the game...' I think if he had been educated in the game it was an obvious foul on Tom Lees. And after all that effort it was disappointing.

"We also had the lad who kicked the ball away in the first half and doesn't get sent off, but rules are rules. I was disappointed, but it was a cracking game and to come back from 2-0 when we were written off, we showed a lot of guts.

"We had a lot of good chances in the second half, even at 2-2. Murphy was in the right place to clear off the line from Becchio, but I can't fault them, it was a great shift. And it would have been the headlines if Dioufy had scored with the last kick of the match to win us the game."
