After missing a header against Sheffield Wednesday, Barry Douglas joked on Twitter that he needed some heading practice.
Some heading practice for me required ♂️ we felt disappointed not to take all 3 points after the chances we created, but we’ll learn a lot from it, onto The next ⚽️ #MOT #BD3 pic.twitter.com/tubmPgXl8n— Barry Douglas (@barrydouglas03) September 29, 2018
It’s good that he’s able to poke a bit of fun at himself, and yeah, he probably should have scored from that chance, but there was any number of chances that probably should have been converted. A point away from home in a derby isn’t necessarily a bad result, but it still probably should have been a win for Leeds.
