LUFC Warnock - Leeds face horrific month

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says his squad will have to show the resolve they have so far this season to get through what he describes as a horrific month.

Leeds return to league action this weekend after the international break when they travel to Cardiff City and Warnock believes the games don`t get much easier in the month against sides who have splashed the cash this summer.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "This is a horrific month and we just have to try and get through and hope we are still in touch.

"All the teams we are playing against have spent far more than we have and have bigger wage bill."


Leeds have picked up seven points from their opening four games in what looked a difficult start to the season, with home games against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers, who both came down from the championship last season as well as the trip to last season`s play-off final runners-up Blackpool..

Leeds picked up four points from those games, they were only denied maximum points against Wolves and Blackburn, when after trailing 2-0 to Blackburn in the opening half hour they led going into the final ten minutes only for the visitors to equalise late on. Warnock believes the players have to continue to show that fighting spirit. "We have shown already, the lads don`t know when they are beaten and we have got to show that resolve," added Warnock.

After the trip to Cardiff, Leeds face Hull City in midweek at Elland Road, who splashed 2.5 million on striker Nick Proschwitz.

Nottingham Forest visit Elland Road next and they have also splashed the cash following their takeover by Kuwaiti businessman Fawaz Al Hasawi, spending 2 million on striker Simon Cox.

Leeds visit Bristol City for their final game of the month and even they have spent over 1 million on a striker this summer, with Sam Baldock signing from West Ham United.

Unlike these, Leeds have continued to trade in the bargain basement of the transfer market and the longest takeover in the history of English football continues to drag on, with Leeds seemingly no nearer to new owners.

A**e covering exercise again COLIN If you have a dodgy month your excuses are already logged with the exception of the Referee. If it goes the other way your a hero. Keep up the Mike Bassett management COLIN. You lot will see it sooner rather than later and when it happens it won't be his fault!!!!!
