Paul Heckingbottom was upset at how Reading were able to equalise almost right after Leeds took the lead.

Leeds surrendered a well-earned lead after three minutes as Reading were able to strike back on a counter-attack that Heckingbottom had a problem with how Leeds dealt with the quickly taken free kick that lead to the counter-attack:

We’ve got three men behind the ball and they have got none in front but as we play the ball forward our three run forward and Mo Barrow runs forwards so when the keeper eventually claims it we give him the option to go and hit us quickly on the counter.

It’s those little details that have been costing the team throughout the season and those things that we have to iron out because the players were oblivious to that and I pulled them on it after the game.

You can be so ruthless by getting those things right because we had worked our socks off to get back in the game and I felt we were the stronger team in the second half so that’s why I am disappointed

Let’s see if the team tightens up defensively after the international break coming up.
