Leeds United manager admits he has an enormous battle ahead of him if he is to write his name in the record books next season and says he wants promotion.
63-year-old Warnock is contracted to Leeds until the summer of 2013, having joined the club in February. He is aiming for his eighth promotion in the Football League, which would see him as the outright most successful manager for winning promotion in Football League history.
Warnock has now had time to assess his squad ahead of the summer transfer window has he prepares for next season and he personally cannot wait for the season to end so that he can get on with what he calls a huge battle to put together a squad good enough to win promotion.
Speaking in the Yorkshire Post, Warnock said, "There are six games left and it cannot come quick enough really. I just have to try to give three or four lads a chance that have not had a chance yet to finalise what I am thinking at the moment.
"I think we need an influx of new players. I think the average supporter knows that who has seen the team. It is obvious we need some fresh blood and it cannot come soon enough.
"It is going to be an enormous battle to get a squad good enough to go up in the summer. That is the challenge; you have to bring in your own players.
"Next season I want to do well. Next year is one that I want to win promotion, that is what I am here for and that is what I would like to do.
"Everybody at Leeds wants the same. It is what we all want.
"You have got to be consistent and you need players that are consistent and are used to the championship because it is a physical league."
Warnock has already stated that he wants to get on with the rebuilding of the squad sooner rather than later and has admitted today that he is on the verge of signing an unnamed player who he has called 'one of his main targets`.
The Leeds boss also has a number of players out of contract and he will be looking to clear the decks as soon as the season finishes at the end of April.
