Steven Pressley: Happy with a point

Leigh Griffiths looked to have put Wanderers on course for a ninth win in 10 league games with his eighth goal of the season in the 67th minute, only for substitute Aaron Phillips to earn City a deserved 1-1 draw four minutes from time.

"I thought we gave a very, very mature performance," Pressley said. "The players gave their absolute lot.

"It was an incredible performance and an incredible attitude from the group and I am truly proud of that.

"It was a great game of football actually, a very intense game, a proper game, on the edge. It would have been a travesty if we had not taken anything from it.

"Even when we scored I felt we could get the winner, I really did. I felt we were the team on the front foot at that stage of the game and I was hopeful we could get that winner.

"But it was a wonderful performance from every single player.

"I talk a lot about the team and giving yourself to the team and each and every player gave themselves to the team.

"They were so unselfish in their work, they covered back for each other and when someone was out of position they recovered for that player. It was a wonderful team effort."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
