Blackpool’s manager Terry McPhillips, who has just been awarded the job on a permanent basis, said Donervon Daniels was unhappy with the former Arsenal youth-team player Marc Bola’s defending during a frantic finale. “I think Donervon was upset that maybe Marc didn’t header it away or something like that and ran over and confronted him,” explained McPhillips. “There was certainly no punches thrown or heads to each other so I thought it was a bit harsh.” Hide Hide Leeds United Share via Email Hide Reuse this content Share on Facebook ChampionshipJack Harrison scored a late equaliser to preserve Leeds’ unbeaten start to the season with a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Millwall at the Den.
