Leeds United: Hosting Peterborough on Tuesday

Six of Leeds' remaining 10 games in the Championship are at home, with the rearranged fixture against Peterborough followed by the visit of West Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield to Elland Road on Saturday.

"We've had a tough week this week and we could have come out of it with six points," Warnock told the club's official website.

The Leeds boss said at the start of the month that Leeds' three fixtures, at home to Millwall and then at Leicester and at Crystal Palace, held the key to his side's chances of forcing their way into the top six.

Victory over Millwall set Leeds on their way, but they conceded late equalisers at the King Power Stadium last Tuesday and at Selhurst Park on Saturday to be left with five points from those three games.

"I said at half-time I thought we could win the game, not just get a draw," Warnock added on the Palace game.

"I thought we really went out and gave it a good go with two good goals from Steve Morison. We should have finished it off again, Ross McCormack had a great chance to make it 3-1. Similar to Dave Norris, the other night, who had a great chance to make it 2-0 at Leicester.

"We have had a tough week this week and we could have come out of it with six points. We've got to keep the way we are playing at home on Tuesday and the fans get behind us.

"They're all important games now, we'll say it before every game. The next one is the vital one."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
