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."

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.
