Neil Warnock: Key period of season for Leeds United

The West Yorkshire outfit, six points adrift of the top six, face Millwall at Elland Road this weekend before trips to promotion-chasers Leicester and Crystal Palace next Tuesday and the following Saturday respectively.

"I don't think there's much wrong now," Warnock told the club's official website.

"We just need a bit of luck with injuries.

"It's a thin squad, but they're a good group. I wish this side had kicked off the season.

"They did what we asked them to do on Saturday and I'm always proud of teams when they play like that.

"The rub of the green will come and we'll just keep pushing on.

"We've got some difficult games coming up against Millwall, Leicester, and Palace, but if we can come through those and look towards the last 10 games, it could still be anybody who gets in there."

Leeds have won only one of their last five league games since beating Tottenham at Elland Road in the fourth round of the FA Cup last month.

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.
