Milanic looking forward to first victory
New Leeds United manager Darko Milanic says that he is very much looking forward to getting his first victory at this new club. The Slovenian was recently appointed as the new manager of the club in what is already proving to be a troubled time under the new ownership. The prospect of getting promoted to the Premier League through the automatic spots may appear to have gone away even at this early stage in the season, but the prospect of finishing in the play-offs is still viable. Milanic has been in charge of Leeds United for three matches, but he has been able to get only two points so far.
They take on Rotherham, who have been struggling for results themselves, away from home this weekend. Rotherham finally managed to bring an end to a poor run of home form by beating Blackburn 2-0 just before the international break. Hence, there is a possibility that they will be feeling confident against Leeds, who have just one win in the last five away matches. This coming together of different set of forms could cause leads to suffer yet another defeat. It will be extremely disappointing for Milanic to convince that he is the right man for the job.
Leeds are 14th in the table with 15 points so far. “It’s important. The win is like the sun. Today the sun is out. I hope tomorrow also. For me it’s extremely important to train with my team and we have done a lot of things (in the break). We played very well in the last game. We did well in defensive play but also in possession. We did a lot of good things and made opportunities to score goals. We were close to the win against Sheffield Wednesday. We were close,” said the boss.
