LUFC Warnock delighted with response of players

LUFC Warnock delighted with response of players

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock has been delighted with the response of his players since taking over at Elland Road.

Warnock is still looking for his first win and goal after three games but he says he could not ask for any more than the players have given.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "They have responded well and I can`t ask any more than that. I said originally that has long as they gave me everything and I think that they have given me everything, then they won`t fall out with me and I don`t think anyone has given less than 100% since I came here.

"I am delighted with the attitude and I think it has rubbed off on the fans who are the same. They are seeing where we are trying to go and I think they are enjoying it as well."


The biggest improvement has been the Leeds defence that has conceded just one goal in his three games, including two clean sheets on the road at Portsmouth and Hull City.

Leeds had kept just six clean sheets prior to the arrival of Warnock and it was an area that he admitted concerned him. Warnock said that he would need to strengthen the defence after watching his first game from the stands against Doncaster Rovers, when they scraped a 3-2 win against the bottom club.

Warnock has stuck by the defence that had let in 48 goals in 32 games prior to him taking charge.

He will be hoping to keep his first clean sheet at Elland Road when they entertain West Ham next weekend.

Leeds have kept just two clean sheets at home this season, whilst keeping six on their travels.

Warnock was full of praise for central defenders Tom Lees and Darren O`Dea in the week saying the pair had been excellent since his arrival.

One noticeable improvement has been the form of Adam Clayton and Michael Brown in midfield who have given the defence much more protection.

Warnock will hope to witness his first Leeds goal when they travel to Middlesbrough on Sunday lunchtime.

Leeds had scored 52 goals in 32 games before his arrival and their blank at Hull in midweek was the first time they had failed to score in three games in a row in almost two years.

Middlesbrough v Leeds can be seen live on BBC on Sunday with a 12.15pm kick off.
