Round-up: Neil Warnock delighted to show Leeds' potential
Monday 24 September 2012
Leeds United picked the perfect time to turn around their form and end Nottingham Forest's unbeaten record in the Championship. Ken Bates, the Leeds chairman, had invited a four-strong delegation from a Bahrain-based consortium of potential investors to watch the 2-1 win at Elland Road on Saturday.
Manager Neil Warnock was relieved to see United climb to 12th. "We've played some tough games so far and done well with the thin squad we've got," he said.
Brighton returned to the top of the table with a 2-1 win at Millwall. Ashley Barnes scored the opener for the visitors, before Chris Wood, the New Zealand international, equalised on his full debut for the Lions.
Adam El-Abd scored the winner after Millwall had been reduced to 10 men. "It is a good start to the season, although we are not getting carried away with it," said the Egyptian midfielder. "It is early days."
Paul Jewell admits he is under pressure after Ipswich suffered their third defeat in a row with a 2-1 loss at home to Charlton. Harry Redknapp has been linked with the post as Town languish second from bottom. "It is a horrible place to be at the moment," said Jewell, "and I know I am not very popular."
Craig Davies scored four times for Barnsley in their 5-0 win at Birmingham – and then joked he would have to be careful next time he heads back to the Midlands for a haircut. "I was brought up as a Birmingham supporter," he said. "I'll have to watch myself a little bit. I still get my hair cut just down the road from St Andrew's."
