Neil Warnock: Says Millwall win was a must

Regular penalty-taker Ross McCormack had already missed from the spot in the first half of Saturday's Elland Road clash and Warnock was keen not to put his striker under any added pressure.

Warnock duly obliged from 12 yards to keep Leeds' hopes of a Championship play-off spot alive and dent the ambitions of the visitors.

"I didn't want Ross to take the second penalty and put extra pressure on himself after missing the first," Warnock said.

"I was going to send El-Hadji Diouf on to take it but Stephen wanted to take it straightaway and he told me he'd taken them before."

The victory was anything but pretty but Warnock admitted he was just delighted to claim the three points and keep his side unbeaten in three outings.

"You have to really beat Millwall," Warnock said. "It's a sort of game where you take a 1-0 win and get out of there.

"It was all about getting three points. It was a must-win before going away to Leicester and Crystal Palace and we deserved it, though we could have made it easier for ourselves."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
