Leeds v Leicester reaction
Both managers were keen to draw a line under the season as Leeds and Leicester ended the campaign at a dismal Elland Road.
Teenage debutant Harry Panayiotou earned Leicester a 2-1 win with the last kick of the game, after Danny Webber had wiped out Martyn Waghorn's opener.
It condemned Leeds to a club record 11th home defeat of the season and capped of a year that has seen them change manager and fail to build on last season's seventh-placed finish.
Leeds boss Neil Warnock is aware of where they have gone wrong, though, and is determined to put it right over the summer.
"I think the record is justified, it shows how low we've come," said the veteran coach, who replaced Simon Grayson in February.
"Instead of being a fortress, it's been a weakness. It won't happen again. This is the lowest ebb for Leeds to lose that many games.
"We couldn't have tried anymore, but that's how it goes."
Warnock is to announce his retained list on Wednesday, with the number of departures expected to dwarf those staying.
Names such as Portsmouth's Jason Pearce and the controversial El-Hadji Diouf are waiting in the wings to arrive in West Yorkshire.
"We're having a drastic change to the squad. We need to get ready and get amongst them," he added of his work ahead.
"I don't have the time to blend them in. We need to be ready to go."
Like Warnock, Leicester manager Nigel Pearson was glad to pack the season away.
A mid-season appointment after Sven-Goran Eriksson failed to turn a lavish pre-season spending spree into a promotion challenge, Pearson is now faced with finding the right formula at the King Power Stadium.
"We finished with a win and that's the best you can say," he said.
"We finished with a three-point game but I didn't think it was a good game. I think there were a lot of poor decisions throughout that irritated both benches.
"The season has finished now and we are looking forward to getting a rebuild."
A bright spot for City came in the shape of 17-year-old Panayiotou, a first-year trainee who has just signed his first professional deal with the club.
Not that his manager was getting too carried away.
"It was good for him to get the experience and it's nice to blood young players," Pearson added.
"But we need to keep his feet on the ground and I will do that."
