The Championship club opened up a two-goal lead at the Reebok Stadium thanks to strikes from Chung-Yong Lee and Marvin Sordell but the Black Cats came back to force a draw.

Freedman was disappointed to see the Trotters throw away their advantage but feels there were also plenty of positives in their display.

"From a 2-0 lead I'm disappointed but overall I'm thrilled with the result because I thought we showed great commitment and desire at the end to defend for our lives," he said.

"For the first 60 minutes I thought we controlled the game and we played a style of football I like to play.

"Overall, it was the old cliche of a game of two halves.

"It was a great tie to watch and in the end we had to dig in and defend - and that was part of the game."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
