'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Warnock still targeting play-offs

New Leeds United manager Neil Warnock believes the side can still get into the end of season play-offs following his appointment as manager on Saturday.

Leeds kept their play-off hopes alive on Saturday with a dramatic late winner against Doncaster Rovers at Elland Road, with Warnock watching the game from the stands after the announcement of his appointment on Saturday morning.

Warnock still believes with fourteen games remaining, Leeds can claim a play-off spot with teams above them in the championship stuttering.

Speaking on Sky Sports News, Warnock said,'I think anything can happen. I think we're a long way from being a top side, if I'm honest, but the lads have got spirit and they showed that today to come back from 2-0 down.

'So (there are) 14 games (to play), everybody's trying to help everybody else aren't they, because no-one's running away with it, so you never say never do you?'


The win for Leeds moves them back to within three points of the play-off places, but with most of the club above them having games in hand, it means Leeds will still be playing catch up with game running out.

Leeds travel to crisis club Portsmouth on Saturday, who have gone into administration this week and have slipped into the relegation places following a ten point penalty.

Leeds then face a tough start to March with games against teams fighting for promotion. The two sides currently in the automatic promotion places Southampton and West Ham both have to come to Elland Road and they face tricky trips to Middlesbrough and Hull City.

If Warnock can somehow manage to get Leeds into the play-off places then his record is second to none having won promotion four times during his career via the end of season lottery.
