Leeds boss Marsch: Blowing two goal lead a terrible feeling

Leeds boss Jesse Marsch was left frustrated after their 2-2 draw at Southampton.

Leeds blew a two goal lead to settle for a point.

Marsch said, "Obviously we're disappointed. It's a terrible feeling to play so well and then have the game switch and walk away with what feels less than one point. It's also progress to be so disappointed with only a point and we have to see through the trees and understand the performance was quite good, from an individual perspective and the collective.

"We're looking clear in every phase of the game and in set-pieces we were very stable and we are finding ways to be dangerous. For me it's always in my mind to be glass half full in a moment like this but the group is making progress. It's great to see so many individuals playing at a high level.

"At 2-1 we switched to five at the back to try and cut down their ability to attack us in what we call the half lane and we get beat out of that, Jack got beat in the half lane. Jack's had two fantastic games to start the season but to tactically make that shift and get beat, that's painful. That's the point of making tactical shifts in the match.

"Then there's a little bit of maturity. We're still a young team and that was one of the reasons why I put Adam on at the end just to help have a guy in the pitch with a little bit more experience that can help settle the game down. I think he did a really good job at that."
