LUFC Warnock - We are a much better side now
Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says the side are getting better all the time after seeing his side claim a point at Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday night.
The draw at Bolton makes it seven points from the last nine and Warnock believes, the side that he assembled during the summer are now working hard for each other and earning their rewards. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "We have got better. I think we are a better side now than we were six weeks ago. We have a lot of new players that I brought in and you can see we are getting used to each other now and we are looking more compact.
"They are a great bunch of lads and there are no big time Charlie`s and I think that is what the fans love about it. They are all working there socks off."
Warnock made wholesale changes to his squad in the summer and only Tom Lees, Michael Brown and Luciano Becchio started the game at Bolton, who were part of the squad last season.
Leeds have faced a tough start to the championship season and with just one game to go until the next international break, they are just three points off third place in the championship.
Leeds have now faced all three clubs that were relegated from the Premier League last season and are unbeaten in all three. They have also had trips to Cardiff City and Blackpool, who are currently in the top four in the division.
Warnock has also seen his small squad struggling with injuries. Paul Green hasn`t played since the opening day and David Norris hasn`t featured in any of the last six games. Last season`s leading goalscorer Ross McCormack is also sidelined until December.
Leeds face Barnsley at Elland Road on Saturday before going into a two week break due to the internationals.
Warnock will hopefully have Green back in the squad when they return and Norris has returned to the squad this week. The break will also give Paddy Kenny, Adam Drury and Luciano Becchio time to recover from knocks they have been carrying.
The Leeds boss is also hoping to add to his squad before the weekend and maybe, just maybe, the club could be in new hands before they face Sheffield Wednesday on their return from the international break.
