Lita, borrowed from Premier League strugglers Swansea, provided the only quality moment of a desperate Championship clash with 14 minutes left.

The forward sent a searing drive which sped just inside the left post at Elland Road to earn the Blues only their second away win of the season.

On the occasion of his 40th birthday, Clark said: "The beer will certainly taste sweeter tonight, that's for sure. I have family and friends coming down and they were hoping I would get a good result because they know what I am like when we lose.

"They didn't want a soppy faced 40-year-old hanging around them."

Clark was delighted with his team and added: "The first half set the tone. We dictated the tempo and did what we set out to do by nullifying the crowd. Leeds came at us a bit more in the second half but the lads stood strong and defended well."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
