Grayson pleased with point

Leeds manager Simon Grayson was content with a 2-2 draw at Leicester, despite seeing his team squander a two-goal lead. It looked like Sven-Goran Eriksson would suffer his first home league defeat as Leicester boss when a header from former Fox Max Gradel and Robert Snodgrass` stunning strike put Leeds in control. However, Paul Gallacher reduced the hosts` arrears from the penalty spot before Andy King equalised soon afterwards midway through the second half with a brilliant 30-yard effort. "I thought that until their first goal we were in control of the game. We were dominating it, passing it around and I don't think Kasper Schmeichel had a save to make," said Grayson. "We got our deserved lead and looked like we could extend that. Unfortunately, we made one mistake which contributed to the penalty and that gave Leicester the momentum to try and get back into it. "But before the game we would have settled for a point because this is a difficult place to come to. They have some top players and are undefeated here under Sven-Goran Eriksson." Kasper Schmeichel only received a yellow card after bringing down Darius Vassell for the penalty but Grayson thought it was the right decision, he added: "It was a close call. Some referees might have sent him off and others would have given him a yellow card. The referee made a decision and I think it was the right decision."
