Warnock I need defensive input to reach play-offs

New Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says the club need some input to the squad defensively if they are to have any chance of reaching the play offs this season.

Warnock is desperate to bring in players in defence to improve a side that has already conceded 48 goals this season.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "It has been clear over the last couple of months that defensively we are not good enough.

"I think we will score goals and create goals and it is whether we can get players in at this stage of the season that can enable us to have a chance, to have runner over the last few games.

"At the moment it is difficult to see us having a run without new input, without one or two players, because I do feel we need an input defensively in the squad.

"We need a certain type of person as well. We are looking to bring them in and the lads here have an opportunity to do the best they can.

"Having watched the last two games on DVD, we do need an input to give us a chance. We also need a certain type and we need one or two leaders around the place on the pitch.

"Hopefully we can try and get one or two. If we can`t then we are struggling to reach the play offs."


Warnock is already being rumoured to be wanting to make a raid on his old club Queens Park Rangers.

Defenders Peter Ramage and Clint Hill have been lined with a move to Elland Road and former Leeds midfielder Shaun Derry is another who is being linked having played for Warnock at both Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers.

Warnock has already lost loan players Fabian Delph and Andros Townsend who have returned to their parent clubs and it is also rumoured that another loan player, Adam Smith is keen on a return to his parent club Tottenham Hotspur after less than a month at the club.

Its been clear for the last 3 Seasons we've needed strength t the back, bit Grayson was clueless

Its taken him two video's to realise our defence is pants. Something Grayson couldn't work out in three years.

I think if he watched Brighton and Coventry videos he will have seen how poor we are defensively as a unit. I hope he gives Lees a chance as his early form was good but his confidence is now low having played with two really CHs in really poor form in Kisnorbo and O'Dea. He has a reputation for giving kids a chance so we could see some surprises although I feel we will see AOB back sooner rather than later.
