They talk about "Super Sunday" so often when it comes to Sunday afternoon football, but how often does the mighty premier league fail to live up to it!
I don't think anyone would have felt short changed following a cracking game involving us on Sunday at Valley Parade.
Ahead of the Bradford meeting with Coventry it was talked up and it didn't disappoint with us securing a dramatic injury time point in a 3-3 draw.
Phil Parkinson feared for the worse when Coventry went two-up within 10-minutes but was delighted with the response, he told BBC Radio Leeds: 'After going 2-0 down, and after the week we had last week, it was a big ask to come back, but we responded really well.'
It goes without saying that we were somewhat fortunate to get a penalty so late, and the boss concedes that we got some fortune with that but we've also been unlucky not to get many a spot kick so far this season with that our first.
He added: 'The referee maybe did us a bit of a favour, but over the game as a whole we deserved a point.
'A number of decisions went against us but we finally got a penalty, our first this season.'
That penalty still had to be scored though didn't it, and Nahki Wells made no mistake as he stroked it home to not only secure a dramatic point but also complete his hat-trick.
Andy Webster and Leon Clarke's goals had them two-up in seven-minutes before two from Wells made it two-two, Callum Wilson still had them ahead again by the break.
Having been denied by the bar Wells got his match ball at the death as we denied the leagues topscorer's (with an incredible 37-goals) a win that would have taken them above us, as it is we stay just outside the playoffs as we moved up to seventh.
