The Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has said that he could not have any complaints about the 2-0 defeat at the hands of Hull City because his team were largely outplayed by a team that were much better. Leeds came into the match against Hull with just two victories in the last three matches, which has halted their promotion aspirations even though the play-off positions. They are currently eighth in the championship table with 38 points on the board, although they can still climbed up to the sixth position because of the small difference. Warnock had admitted that his team could have been beaten by a greater margin.
Warnock tried to utilise a different 5-3-2 formation against Leeds United and it totally did not work from the word go. Warnock also paid tribute to the incredible form experienced by Hull City in recent weeks. Under the management of Steve Bruce, the club has been able to move to the second position in the table just seven points behind leaders Cardiff City. They are on course for promotion back to the Premier league automatically, while Leeds United can hope for the play-off positions at the best. Warnock has said that he does not expect the performance of his players to be repeated in the subsequent matches.
“I think Hull are a one-off, I don’t think there’s another team like them in the league. They are by far the best organised team in the league, they play the same home and away. They have a good squad with decent replacements. I feel the frustration that the fans feel with our squad, but we’re all glad it’s January coming up. I’m trying to get new players in,” said the manager. Warnock is expected to bring in a couple of players, while sending out a few.
