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

LUFC Bates - Things are looking good

Leeds United chairman Ken Bates has been delighted by the performances of Leeds since the arrival of Neil Warnock and he believes things are looking good.

Leeds won their first game under Warnock last weekend with a 2-0 win at 4th placed Middlesbrough and Bates thought it was a fantastic result by a team he felt looked unrecognisable from the one over the winter months.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Bates said, "I thought the score was fantastic, it should have been double. What really pleased me was the performance. Is that the Leeds United team we saw out there in November, December and January?

"I could not believe. They were harrying, fighting for every ball and fighting for each other and it was exciting football."


Leeds have managed three clean sheets in their four games under Warnock and in the game they did concede, only a world class performance in goal by Southampton goalkeeper Kelvin Davis denied Leeds a win.

With sides around Leeds in the table continuing to drop points, Bates feels things are looking good as they go into the last ten games of the season. "If you think, we have now played four games with three clean sheets and we are back to being the Leeds of old. On top of that, when we hammered Southampton, we should have beaten them and we deserved to beat them. It is looking good and I am delighted.

"We are now just four points off the play-offs and we have to play a few of the clubs around us. Everybody is taking points of each other so I think all of a sudden things are looking good,"
added Bates.

Leeds have played sides above them in the table in their last three games and have conceded just one goal.

On Saturday, they welcome West Ham to Elland Road, a club who have stayed in or around the automatic promotion places all season.

A win for Leeds on Saturday could have those clubs still above them in the championship table looking nervously over their shoulders.
