LUFC Warnock ready for Forest challenge

LUFC Warnock ready for Forest challenge

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says he is looking forward to the challenge ahead of him when Nottingham Forest visit Elland Road this weekend and they have to stop feeling sorry for themselves and get on with things.

Warnock goes into the game without Paul Green, David Norris and last season`s leading goalscorer Ross McCormack through injury and Luciano Becchio, who has netted six times already this season, is a doubt with an ankle injury.

The Leeds boss has already stated that it is highly unlikely that there will be any new signings coming into the club before Saturday, he is ready to do the best with what he has at his disposal and he is looking forward to the challenge. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "We have got to get the best out of what we have got and that is what I am going to be doing between now and the weekend.

"We are playing a team that absolutely battered us last year, we have got four of our best players missing and all the things are stacked against us but I think that is what makes football such a great game to be in.

"It is a challenge for me to get a good result on Saturday with what we have got and I am looking forward to it now because we are right in the mess at the moment regarding injuries and everything but something can come out of it."


Leeds lost to Forest 7-3 at Elland Road in March, the clubs heaviest defeat in their history at home and they will come into this game on the back of two defeats in a row as well as an ever-increasing injury list. Warnock is not looking for sympathy and says they cannot go around feeling sorry for themselves."There are a lot more important things in life and after what has happened around the country this week, we have to get a grip of ourselves, stop feeling sorry for ourselves and get on with it.

"Yes, we can`t afford to lose three or four of our players with the squad we have but we are playing for a fantastic club and we are playing against a team that put seven past us last season. What a challenge it is and I am going to revel in it,"
added Warnock.

Whilst Leeds are still waiting for their supposed takeover from the Middle East, Nottingham Forest are reaping the benefits of a takeover this summer from the same part of the world.

Kuwaiti businessman Fawaz Al Hasawi completed the takeover of Forest in July, having also been linked with a move to Leeds this summer and whilst Leeds are continuing to be frustrated at a lack of finance, Al Hasawi quickly made funds available to new boss Sean O`Driscoll.

O`Driscoll has brought in a host of Premier League players including Simon Cox (West Brom), Danny Collins (Stoke City) and Henri Lansbury (Arsenal).

Forest remain unbeaten after six games this season, having won two and drawn four of their opening six games.
