While Leeds were awarded two penalties during the Elland Road tie, with Stephen Warnock securing the win with his second-half spot kick, Jackett argued that referee Mike Jones made the wrong decision when Sam Byram looked to have handled the ball.

He said: "My first impressions are that we couldn't complain about either of Leeds' penalties but I felt we had a clear-cut penalty when Danny Shittu headed the ball down, Sam Byram had his hand by the side of his body and clearly handled it as the ball was going through to my centre-forward.

"I thought the referee got that call wrong.

"David Forde made a good save from the first penalty and he is in top form at present. We had big chances but Paddy Kenny pulled off two very good saves for them and Shane Lowry hooked one over from about seven yards, so we were unfortunate to come away with nothing."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
