Pearce and Adryan react on Twitter - Brazilian's surprising statement

Leeds United Crest

Leeds United players Jason Pearce and Adryan have had their say on their side's match against Norwich City.

Leeds United captain Jason Pearce and Brazilian loanee Adryan have taken to Twitter to reflect on their side's 1-1 draw with Norwich City.

The Canaries took the lead in the 59th minute through Russell Martin, but Souleymane Doukara equalised just four minutes later and that was how the game stayed.

The result means Leeds head coach Darko Milanic is still to oversee a victory but there were reasons to be positive as the Whites travelled to a very tough ground and left with a share of the spoils.

Pearce has since praised Norwich and suggested that it was a point won rather than two points dropped.

"Tough game against a very good side," the Leeds defender wrote.  "But a good point and we move on.  Fans were class."

But it was Adryan's tweet that was the most interesting, as the youngster reflected on what he called "One of the toughest games of my life...a war."

The Brazilian made his first start for Leeds on Tuesday and he provided the assist for Doukara to score the leveller, but despite impressing, he clearly did not find it easy.

Leeds are currently 15th in the Championship while Norwich are fifth, four points behind current leaders Derby County.
