Leeds captain Pearce comments on Twitter after Reading result

Leeds United captain Jason Pearce happy with a point.

No goals in two games does not make for pleasant viewing for Leeds fans, but the club at least managed to avoid defeat on Wednesday night.

The club captain is certainly thinking positively, describing the draw as 'good', against a Reading team who have cause the club problems in the past.

Taking to Twitter the day after the 0-0 draw, Jason Pearce posted the following message:

For a back-line missing regular left-back Stephen Warnock as a result of a tactical switch, Leeds should certainly be happy to have kept a clean sheet.

Reading had 14 attempts on goal, landing four on target compared to just one from the home side, and the fact they held out is a positive.

In the next game against Sheffield Wednesday, more will be expected. It is wins in the Championship which really transform a club's placing in an incredibly tightly contested division and a home fixture should provide a good platform for that.

Leeds sit 12th, but are only four points off the play-offs, and would leapfrog rivals Sheffield Wednesday with a win, who are two points above them.
