The Yorkshiremen have slipped down the table in recent weeks, saving their better form for the Capital One Cup, in which they have beaten Everton and Southampton in the last two rounds.

Asked where Leeds needed to be in the table come January to have a chance of challenging for promotion, Warnock said: "I don't think you can say in the Championship.

"I remember saying to (former Crystal Palace chairman) Simon Jordan a few years ago before I went there, because we were friends, that I felt the squad he had got was good enough to get promotion that year and at the time they were third from bottom.

"Then they appointed Iain Dowie straight after and went up in the play-offs, so I don't think you can write anybody off in the Championship because I don't think there's a particularly good team, there's teams that have got a lot of money that are up there, but even they're slipping up aren't they?

"If we can get our own house in order, to give us a fighting chance during the second half of the season - that's still my objective."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
