MATCH FO­CUS

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

Good day: Ter­ence Kon­golo

Shifted from the cen­tre to left-back and proved as re­li­able as ever. Great an­tic­i­pa­tion and strength in de­fence, while he was the only Town man to show any sort of at­tack­ing nous.

Bad day: Jonathan Hogg

Re­gard­less of what went on in the six-yard box at the cor­ner – and there ap­peared to be plenty of pulling and push­ing – he sim­ply can not af­ford to lock heads with an op­po­nent and then hit the turf as the clear ag­gres­sor.

Key mo­ment: 76th minute

Plenty of push­ing and shov­ing as Joe Ralls’s cor­ner floated across to leave Sean Mor­ri­son with what should have been the sim­ple task of head­ing in. But he missed.

Ref watch: Michael Oliver

Re­lied on his as­sis­tant for the red card. But Oliver could – and prob­a­bly should – have po­liced bet­ter some of the argy-bargy go­ing on in both boxes at cor­ners.

Ver­dict

Rarely can the Premier League have seen as bad a first half as this one. Mat­ters livened up af­ter the break and Town de­serve credit for hold­ing out for a point with 10 men.
