Caretaker manager Neil Redfearn has declared his delight that Leeds have appointed Neil Warnock as the new Leeds boss after he helped inspire the side to turn around a two goal deficit on Saturday afternoon.
Warnock was only confirmed as manager of Leeds United yesterday but was at the club for the game against Doncaster and Redfearn confirmed that he did talk to the players both before the game and at half time.
Doncaster had taken command of the game thanks to two goals from Mamadou Bagayoko before Andros Townsend replied just after the second goal and then Adam Clayton found an equaliser with 10 minuted of the match remaining.
It was then left to Luciano Beccio to find a dramatic last minute winner that keeps up the clubs ambitions of landing a place in the play-offs by the end of the season,
Redfearn admitted that he felt it was a great appointment and would certainly help the club try and realise their dreams of a return to the Premier league.
"Neil had a big impact. He came in at half-time and made a few points. It was sensible advice in the situation we were in," revealed Redfearn, as reported on Sky Sports.
"He said they should be a bit more positive, with more energy, and play higher up the pitch. There was no ranting and raving. Our second-half performance was more like it. We got about them and the crowd responded."
Leeds are currently in 10th place in the Championship but are just three points off the play off places as they look to try and end the season with a good run of form that could see them in the hunt for a return to the top flight.
