Eunan O’Kane has admitted that Leeds United were not good enough to merit a win against managerless Nottingham Forest on Monday as they were held to a 0-0 draw at Elland Road.
Both sides had chances to break the deadlock with goalkeepers Felix Wiedwald and Jordan Smith both being called into action at either ends of the pitch.
However the Whites did not do enough in the attacking area of the pitch in order to get a win against Forest, who sacked Mark Warburton just 24 hours earlier.
Ex-Leeds midfielder Liam Bridcutt was awarded the man of the match award for his performance in the Nottingham Forest side, and O’Kane has admitted that it was good to come up against his former team-mate.
“I don’t think we deserved anymore than we got,” said O’Kane on Sky Sports Football at 17:00pm on Monday afternoon.
When asked about coming up against Bridcutt, the Irish midfielder added: “It’s strange but I think the two of us are professionals.
“We had a good battle today and at the end of the day we shake hands and we’re friends again.”
Leeds stay fifth in the Championship table after drawing against Forest, but they do make up a point on fourth-placed Cardiff after they lost to QPR in West London.
Aston Villa can move above the Whites later on in the day if they beat high-flying Bristol City.
Next up for Leeds is an FA Cup third round clash against Newport County on Sunday.
