Andy Reid preferred to focus on the positives after Sheffield United had been denied a first win in four league matches in the 2-2 draw at Leicester. Reid, making his first full appearancefor the Blades following his loan switch from Sunderland, played a key role for Gary Speed's side, who were pegged back by Steve Howard's controversial last-minute penalty. Reid said: "We're disappointed with what happened at the end. It was blatantly not a penalty, but we can't dwell on the negatives because there were so many positives. "We played well, had a good shape throughout and forced Leicester to change their approach. We defended well as a team and they didn't score from open play, while going forward we played some good football." The Irishman added: "I was happy enough with my performance and enjoyed the role playing just off `Cressy' (Richard Cresswell). I managed to get on the ball and have a hand in the first goal, so that was pleasing."
