LUFC Redfearn - Important we kept a clean sheet

LUFC Redfearn - Important we kept a clean sheet

Leeds United caretaker manager Neil Redfearn felt it was important that the side kept a clean sheet in the win over Bristol City.

Leeds conceded four in midweek against Birmingham City and were particularly poor defensively.

Redfearn felt that their strength defensively in the first half hour, as they were under pressure from Bristol City eventually won them the game.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Redfearn said, "What was really important today and upper most in our minds was to keep a clean sheet. We knew if we kept a clean sheet we have the people in the side that can score goals, there is no two ways about it.

"I thought everyone to a man, from one to eleven, we defended from the front. I thought Luciano and Ross stopped them playing out from the back and we were making David James kick and to be fair to old Jamesy, he cannot kick as well as he used to. He wants to throw out and play out, we were aware of that, and it played into our hands.

"To be fair to Bristol, I thought they were excellent for thirty minutes and it was a real old battle and a test for us and we came through that test but it was the first half hour of the game that won us the game."


The home side`s best chance in the first half fell to Bolasie but his low shot was well saved by Andy Lonergan and the keeper made another fine save late on in the game to deny Liam Fontaine, as Leeds kept their first clean sheet in ten games and only their sixth this season.

Leeds will now hope to keep back-to-back clean sheets when they entertain inform Brighton and Hove Albion at Elland Road next weekend.
