Charlie Austin's extraordinary goal-scoring season continued as he nodded home in the fourth minute, but Marcus Tudgay levelled it up - also with his head - just before the break.

Neither side could find a winner in the second half and Dyche admitted he would be going back over the Pennines with a point.

"I am pleased with the outcome more than the performance," he said. "I wasn't pleased with the performance, particularly the first half.

"But we demand a lot from the players and we have to be realistic and know we might have a soft performance every now and then.

"So within that, the major positive was that we came out of it with a point. But the performance, especially in the first half, was not something that I was enjoying.

"We never grasped the ball and that was the main thing I was disappointed with.

"But it is quite obvious we are becoming a difficult side to beat, which is important in the Championship."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

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.
