On 75 minutes it was all going swimmingly. True Middlesbrough were ahead, but Nottingham Forest were only drawing at home, Leicester were, of course, losing to Old Big Gob's brave hearts, and Brighton were only claiming a point. The gap was closing! The Premiership was in sight!
Even after 89 minutes Leeds were on course! True Forest had sneaked into the lead, but Miserablebrough were now losing and Brighton were still being held. Leeds were ahead at Leicester and the route to the play offs was beckoning.
And then Sod's Law struck! A Leicester equaliser in injury time! Et tu Keane? Then fall Big Gob!
Forest have widened the gap now to four points, Leicester maintain an 8 point cushion, Brighton stay six points ahead, and bloody Bolton have overtaken Leeds and are on a charge! One moment you have your foot in the Premiership door, and the next the door slams shut and crushes your varicose veins.
Poor Old Big Gob will be exploding in pride, indignation and fury tonight. The dog had better watch out or it's in for a good kicking! If only the bloody forwards could score!
One goal is never enough, as they say, unless you are Nottingham Forest and Bolton!
