Football - Warnock delighted at performance

Leeds boss Neil Warnock was thrilled with his side's performance as they beat Blackpool 2-0 to record a first win in four games.

Second-half goals from David Norris and Steve Morison lifted the pressure on the Whites manager and moved the club to within six points of the play-off places.

And Warnock was singing his side's praises following United's 10th home league win of the campaign.

"I couldn't pick a star," he said. "They were all nine or 10 out of 10.

"We started on the front foot and limited them to just a couple of opportunities, which would have been cruel if they'd gone in. Paddy made a couple of great saves and I couldn't see him being beaten."

Warnock had come under increasing pressure in recent weeks as Leeds went on a run of just two wins in eight games, but he still believes he is the best man for the job.

He added: "If you brought another manager in I couldn't see him getting more out of those players than you saw against Blackpool.

"They played with a freedom that they haven't shown for a while, so we go to Blackburn on Saturday in a lot better spirit."
