Leeds manager Neil Warnock believes Hull are the benchmark for his side to aspire to after a 2-0 defeat at the KC Stadium.

Corry Evans and David Meyler scored in the space of three second-half minutes to give the Tigers a deserved victory which could have been by an even bigger margin.

"I think Hull are a one-off, I don't think there's another team like them in the league," he said.

"They are by far the best organised team in the league, they play the same home and away. They have a good squad with decent replacements.

"I feel the frustration that the fans feel with our squad, but we're all glad it's January coming up. I'm trying to get new players in, the new owners are supporting me and want to bring players in.

"Whatever we do, we're not going to cope with Hull and Cardiff, but looking at the other teams, we don't have much to fear. We need to get our own house in order.

"Hull are where they are and I can't see many overtaking them. They play with one up front and have a desire, they don't give goals away and they have a good recipe for success."
