LUFC Warnock - It is all about three points

LUFC Warnock - It is all about three points

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says it is all about the three points after seeing his side beat Barnsley 1-0 at Elland Road after being second best for much of the first half.

Barnsley could have quite easily have been ahead in the first half before Luciano Becchio scored from the penalty spot close to half time.

Jacob Mellis missed an excellent opportunity to put the visitors ahead inside five minutes but he missed the target with the goal at his mercy.

David Perkins and Marlon Harewood also went close for Barnsley in the opening twenty minutes as the visitors dominated the game.

Warnock isn`t too worried about the performance though, as long as Leeds come away with the three points and he felt the win was deserved after seeing out the first twenty minutes and changing the system.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "It is all about coming in at 4.50pm with all three points; it doesn`t matter about the performance.

"After the first twenty minutes I was quite happy. We changed the system because of the amount of possession they were having.

"For all the possession they had, we restricted them to a few chances. Once we sorted the system out and changed ours, we played much better and had some decent opportunities to put it beyond doubt."


The winning goal came from a debatable penalty decision. Lee Peltier was fouled outside the area by Barnsley defender Stephen Foster but referee Darren Deadman pointed to the penalty spot.

Luciano Becchio stepped up to score his ninth goal of the season with a cheeky chip down the centre of the goal with Barnsley goalkeeper Ben Alnwick already committed to the dive.

The second half was much more even but the best opportunity fell to experienced striker Marlon Harewood for the visitors. Harewood lacked any conviction with his effort from close range and Leeds goalkeeper Paddy Kenny did well to block the effort.

The win for Leeds moves them up to seventh place in the championship.
