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.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
