LUFC Redfearn - Wins could benefit me

LUFC Redfearn - Wins could benefit me

Leeds United caretaker manager Neil Redfearn says he is hoping to help the club and if that benefits him with the manager`s position then that will be great.

Redfearn has been placed in temporary charge of the side following the sacking of Simon Grayson on Wednesday.

He will take charge for the first time when Leeds make the trip to Bristol City on Saturday and he is hoping to put himself in the frame for the job with some positive results.

Speaking on Sky Sports News, Redfearn said, "There is a big game now for the club at Bristol City on Saturday and what is important is that we rally round and go and do well there and get a result.

"I am capable, that goes without saying. The bottom line is, the decision will be up to the club.

"The decision is out of my hands. From my point of view, I am more interested in Saturday`s game, in making sure that everything is ready. Then whatever happens I will take in my stride.

"I am not putting myself under pressure either way. I am in this position now, I still have a lot of good friends at this club that I want to help through in the short-term future.

"If I can get some results for Leeds United and that benefits whatever happens, then that will be great."


Redfearn joined Leeds in January 2009 as youth team coach, just a few weeks after Simon Grayson had been appointed manager.

Since his arrival, the youth set up as seen an overall, which has seen a number of players breaking into the first team.

Aidy White and Tom Lees are now first team regulars and we have also seen the breakthrough this season of Zac Thompson, Charlie Taylor and Alex Cairns into the first team.

Redfearn brings over 25 years of playing in the League to the side and he has played over 1000th games at a competitive level.

He has also had brief spells in charge of Halifax Town, Northwich Victoria, Scarborough and York City previously.
