Darren O'Dea: Focusing on positives after being held to a last-gasp draw against Coventry
Leeds United's on-loan defender Darren O'Dea is focusing on the positives from their 1-1 draw with Coventry City on Tuesday.
The Republic of Ireland international opened the scoring in the first half, however, the Whites were pegged back at the death.
O'Dea accepts that it was ultimately two points dropped for Simon Grayson's side, although it extended their unbeaten run to six games.
"There's plenty to be positive about but at the minute it's very disappointing," commented O'Dea after being held at home.
"We'll look back and think it is two points dropped but we've come back and scored very late goals this season and it's just the roles reversed now.
"When we calm down a bit we will realise that we're unbeaten in six, defending better as a team and scoring goals."
O'Dea was pleased to bag a goal but he says a win would have made the strike more enjoyable.
"I would have preferred a clean sheet to a goal but it's fantastic to score and to score at Elland Road is even more special," he continued.
"It would be better if we turned it into a win but it will be something that maybe I'll look back on in the years to come."
