Blackwell Insists He's On Course

Blackwell Insists He's On Course

Kevin Blackwell insisted the 2-0 defeat by Preston has no bearing on his team's meeting with them in the Championship play-offs. Despite his side putting the fear of God into his own supporters.

Goals from Brian Stock and Brett Ormerod ensured Preston finish in fourth and Leeds, who have won once in 10, settle for fifth.

The sides will meet again in the first leg of the play-off semi-finals at Elland Road on Friday before the return game at Deepdale on Monday week.

Blackwell: 'I put a team out to be competitive and it was so I'm pleased with what I got out of it.

'There were a lot of changes but it was for a purpose. It's about just playing the (semi-final) game. The occasion will have to be dealt with in a separate way.

'With eight changes, I don't think Billy (Davies) or I will read too much into the result.

'Now knowing who we've got, all four teams can now focus on the game.

'Training becomes a lot more specific so I'm pleased it's out of the way.'
