Neil Warnock is now looking forward to Saturday's trip to Blackburn.

Some Leeds supporters were calling for Warnock to leave during the FA Cup loss to Manchester City at the weekend but second-half goals from David Norris and Steve Morison eased the pressure on the boss.

It was a first league victory in four for Leeds and they are now just six points adrift of the play-off spots.

Warnock said: "I couldn't pick a star tonight. They were all nine or 10 out of 10.

"We started on the front foot and limited them to just a couple of opportunities, which would have been cruel if they'd gone in. Paddy (Kenny) made a couple of great saves and I couldn't see him being beaten.

"If you brought another manager in, I couldn't see him getting more out of those players than you saw tonight.

"They played with a freedom that they haven't shown for a while, so we go to Blackburn on Saturday in a lot better spirit."
