Venables: I am absolutely stunned

Last updated : 01 December 2002 By The Gas Man

"I am absolutely stunned," said the Leeds boss.

"I thought we'd end up winning 2-1 with Bridges effort, but then we end up losing 2-1 so it's a big blow.

"I feel the players have done well tonight, and I have to say that the crowd were fantastic as well. They got behind the players throughout, and I think it showed because we played with confidence and defended well until the end.

"I felt they were excellent from the first minute to the end. I think that is a really major plus point tonight."
