Neil Warnock: Frustrated by more dropped points

Neil Warnock: Frustrated by more dropped points

Last week, Warnock felt his play-off-chasing side had the better of the game at home against Cardiff but fell to a 1-0 defeat.

And on Saturday, they were denied a first away win in five attempts when Danny Batth headed in to earn the home side a 2-2 draw.

Wolves had taken the lead through a Lee Peltier own goal before Leeds turned the game around courtesy of a Luke Varney goal and Ross McCormack's penalty.

"The frustration for me is that we have just played Cardiff City and Wolves and we should have had six points and I have got one out of both games," said Warnock. "I want to get into the play-offs and I am disappointed that we are not in the play-offs and games are running out.

"I want to go up. I think I am more frustrated than anybody. It is all right for the players they are all young and they can play for years to come. I want to get into the play-offs so I am frustrated over the last two games.

"But I am ever so pleased the way we have played since the Barnsley debacle (when they lost 2-0). It is good for the future. At least I have the team that I want together at the moment.

"I can't fault anyone now. This is the team that I would like in the trenches with me if we were going to war. You know what I am like. Everyone is genuine. A manager asks for them to give their all and they did today. But the games are running out.

"I want to get promotion and that is why I came here. I have the players I want now. The new owners have been supportive and we have players who want to play for the club and that is half the battle at a place like Leeds.

"I was really proud of them today and we will give it a good shot in the last 16 games."

Leeds are five points and five places below the play-off places.
