LUFC Warnock - We deserved the win

LUFC Warnock - We deserved the win

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock felt his side deserved the three points after securing their first away win of the season at Peterborough United on Saturday.

Warnock was relieved to see out the game in the closing minutes and he felt they should and could have made the game safe. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "I thought we deserved it. It was a bit hair-raising near the end when we couldn`t finish them off.

"I thought we were quite professional today and deserved the win. You have to give them credit though; they fought back and put us under pressure.

"I thought we should have at least got a third. We had two or three great opportunities on the break but we couldn`t find the final ball and it wasn`t to be."

Leeds led 2-0 thanks to two goals from Luciano Becchio at the start of each half, the striker`s third and fourth goals of the season.

Peterborough had hardly scared the Leeds back line all day, until Michael Bostwick fired past Paddy Kenny with just under twenty minutes remaining, after a poor attempted clearance by David Norris.

Leeds substitute Sam Byram had a couple of chances to increase Leeds lead in the dying minutes and despite four minutes of 'Fergie time` Peterborough hardly threatened the Leeds goal.

The win for Leeds moves them up to sixth in the championship table at this early stage in the season having picked up six points from a possible nine.

The championship once again looks wide open this season with only Blackpool, the only side to defeat Leeds so far this season, still having a 100% win record.

Sheffield Wednesday, Blackburn, Nottingham Forest and Charlton are the only other sides in the division still unbeaten after three games.

Crystal Palace and Peterborough are still looking for their first point this season having lost their opening three games and one of the pre-season favourites for the division, Birmingham have picked up just one point.

Next up for Leeds in the championship are Blackburn Rovers who were relegated from the Premier League last season.

The Lancashire club have picked up seven points from a possible nine but there is still unrest amongst the fans at Ewood Park, who continue to call for the sacking of manager Steve Kean despite a decent start to the season.
