LUFC Warnock - No variety in squad
Neil Warnock believes the squad he has inherited from Simon Grayson is full of the same type of players and lacks variety.
Warnock says he is unlikely to make any changes to the side that did so badly in midweek, when they suffered their record home defeat at the hands of relegation threatened Nottingham Forest.
The Leeds boss admits to trying and failing to bring in players on loan today when the transfer window closed for the last time this season at 5pm.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "I think the squad is full of the same type of players. It does not have enough variety.
"We tried to do a few deals but they proved unsuccessful."
There was no movement out of the club either today and Warnock says he will look at his squad players before the end of the season if the play-offs are out of reach. "There are players I would like to have a look at before the end of the season.
"If results don`t go our way in the next two or three games then I have got to have a look at some of the players who are under contract next year to give me an idea of what I am looking at,"added the Leeds boss.
Leeds are still only six points short of the play-off places despite their midweek defeat and Warnock says he is looking forward to seeing the response of those players that so badly let him down on Tuesday night and it could be a deciding factor on whether they will remain in his plans for next season. "I am looking forward to seeing the response I get from the players and to see who has taken things on board.
"It will help when I am deciding who will stay, who will go and what I am going to do. It is an opportunity for players to say 'they want to stay`," continued Warnock.
Leeds players will certainly know they have been in a game when they travel to Millwall on Saturday.
The London club have made a habit of raising their game in recent seasons when Leeds are in town and have won the last four meetings between the two at the New Den.
