Recap: Leeds Tie Sheffield Wednesday 1-1. Rosler: What More Can I Ask?

Overall, it seems Rosler is very pleased with his club thus far into the year. And after a 1-1 tie vs Sheffield Wednesday, Rosler can't ask for more.

Seems all the Whites keep doing is tying, which isn't a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination.

United took on Sheffield Wednesday at home at Elland Road with a full house in the stands.

Marco Matias beat the offside trap and took a shot at the underside of the crossbar, which worked out for him, giving Sheffield the lead.

Stuart Dallas responded with a low cross that was picked up by Chris Wood to make the score even at ones.

Uwe Rosler told the teams official website: "They didn't really attack us in any shape or form. Yes, we played too many straight balls in the beginning of the game.

"We weren't patient enough but they didn't have one chance in the whole game.

"The goal came as a wonder goal. I think we have to applaud their player - I wouldn't have even called it a chance.

"I think it was a fantastic individual effort. Apart from that, I can't recall any real efforts.

"My players knocked on the door and did everything I asked them to do.

"We made mistakes but we made up for it with endeavour, with character and everything that I could ask for. "The players reacted in the right way, coming back from 1-0 down - what more can I ask?"

He went on to speak about Chris Wood and Mirco Antenucci, and the grit they showed during the game. "I think both of our strikers did well, forcing corners and free-kicks, and also forcing the momentum which got us the goal.

"Their goal was a big blow physcologically, especially what we were coming into the game on the back of. "They were already tired, the legs didn't always follow what the brain told them.

"At 1-0 down to a goal like that, you are thinking, ‘Where do we go from here?' But we still came back.

"We still pushed them for the win and I put another striker on to win the game. I can't ask for more than that."

Overall United are showing improvement, and it's not like they're losing a whole lot.

Personally, I think the addition of Uwe Rosler has really helped. Dallas, Wood, and Antenucci are working really well together.... I just have a fantastic feeling about this Whites club this season.
