Leeds United face vital month
Yorkshire Evening Post 31/12/12 By Phil Hay Neil Warnock admitted that January would be a “vital month” for Leeds United after the club reached the transfer window five points short of the play-offs. United endured a sobering end to 2012 as a resounding defeat at Hull City left Warnock crossing his fingers in the hope of telling success in the January market. The Leeds boss, who is under contract until the summer and aiming for a record eighth promotion as a Football League manager, said he was receiving the full support of GFH Capital and insisted the club’s new owners share his sense of urgency with the new year upon them. United were comprehensively outplayed by Hull on Saturday, losing 2-0 to second-half goals from Corry Evans and David Meyler, and a gap of five points has opened up between Warnock’s squad and the Championship’s top six. Warnock told the YEP: “January needs to be a good month for us. It’s a vital month and I think everyone at the club knows how vital it is.
