He asked for three games to change the world and Leeds have not conceded a single goal in all three of them. But cruelly, wickedly, following Middlesbrough's stunning victory over Cardiff and Brighton's thumping of Huddersfield, Leeds are actually further off that precious play off place tonight than they were at the start of the day - thanks to goal difference and goals scored. And with two tough away games coming up, all hope could be gone by the next time Warnock's team return to Fortress Elland Road.
The old problem of lack of creativity and fire power returned to haunt Leeds against a very poor Millwall. The two penalties apart, one of which was missed, when did Leeds ever look like scoring? And had the referee not been a homer and awarded the obvious penalty to Millwall when Byram handled, the game could easily have ended up all square.
The result at Blackburn looked decent last week, but with Rovers losing at home to Peterborough today and shipping three goals in the first 45 minutes, you are again left wondering what Leeds might have achieved had they retained the services of Becchio or, better still, invested in Wood.
As for Warnock Junior, he is clearly a quick learner. Never mind the penalty he scored, that foul on James Henry was straight out of the Leeds United text book on how to break opponents' legs. Neil will no doubt be telling him, a little more force at the moment of impact next time lad!
