LUFC Warnock retire? He is thinking about playing

LUFC Warnock retire? He is thinking about playing

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says he might have to dust off his boots and come out of retirement and show the players how to score after the side went down to a 1-0 win at Middlesbrough on Tuesday night.

Leeds have been guilty of missing some guilt edged chances in recent games and they have now picked up just one point from their last three games, leaving them in mid-table, both eight points off the play-off places and relegation zone.

Ross Barkley missed a sitter in the recent home game against Cardiff City and Ross McCormack was guilty of failing to score at Middlesbrough on Tuesday night when he could only hit his shot straight at defender Jonathan Woodgate after he had rounded goalkeeper Jason Steele and Warnock says he is bewildered after the recent run of results.

Speaking at his post-match press conference, Warnock said, "I don`t know where a win will come from unless I actually run on the pitch and put the chances in, it is so frustrating. The misses in the last three games have not even been difficult chances; I just do not know how you can legislate for the misses against Middlesbrough.

"I thought they were there for the beating. We had a great opportunity to take the lead and I still don`t know how we have missed it, same as the one we missed against Cardiff. It is so disappointing.

"We should be talking about three wins and being right in there and we have got one point from one game, it is so bewildering."

Leeds had other opportunities to go ahead against Middlesbrough in the first half with Luke Varney, Steve Morison and David Norris all having good chances.

Middlesbrough were also creating chances in an open game. Rhys Williams missing their best opportunity in the first half. Williams hitting his shot into the ground and over the bar, after finding himself in space at the back post.

Paddy Kenny also had to be alert in the second half, making a great double save.

Leeds were undone with just eight minutes remaining when Curtis Main saw his looping header beat Kenny. Main was sent off minutes later for a second bookable offence and Leeds almost grabbed a last minute equaliser when substitute Habib Habibou saw his header kept out by a full stretch Steele and it was to prove another disappointing away day for Leeds.
