United boss wants that first ER win...
United manager Neil Warnock is not looking any further ahead than Saturday's clash with Watford and the chance to "get that first Elland Road win" under his belt.
Having been written off as Play-Off candidates following the 7-3 defeat at the hands of Nottingham Forest, United are right back in the mix now following Saturday's win against Millwall.
The boss has always insisted that home form will be the key but, equally, he has remained neutral when asked about his side's chances of finishing in the top-six.
Since watching the Doncaster victory from the stands, the new manager saw his side outplay Southampton at Elland Road, but lose 1-0, watched a last-minute equaliser deny victory against West Ham, and saw Forest run up a cricket score almost two weeks ago.
And he admits he is taking things one step at a time as his side prepare to face Watford on Saturday with a first home win under his stewardship his main focus.
"I want to win at home, I'm not looking beyond that," said the boss.
"The tabloids are saying I've won two out of seven games since I came here, I'd say we've lost two of out seven.
"We've been very, very close, and we could have been another seven points better off than we are now, but all I'm thinking about is maximum points at home and the Watford game is the only one I'm bothered about."
With the gap standing at just three points now, there is a renewed optimism that the new boss can pull off the unlikely and guide his team into a top-six finish.
But the manager is refusing to put any pressure on his players and admits that inconsistency could well be the deciding factor in the season.
"Leeds fans are so desperate to do well and that's what that makes this challenge so exciting," he said. "We shall be giving it our all, that's all I can say.
"I read all the doom and gloom after the Forest the game and then all the euphoria after the Milwall game. It's like water off a ducks back. We haven't been good enough consistently.
"If we don't win on Saturday, we'll probably go and win at Reading and then we'll be going for the Championship or something stupid, but you can't lose a game 7-3 and get in the Play-Offs!
"We've got to win a home game. Watford's as good as any. They're flying and I'm not disappointed by that. I'd rather that than play a team having the worst run ever.
"If everyone plays to the top of their game we can be a match for anybody. When we drop a few cogs we'll get turned over. We can't be like that. Next season, we can't have inconsistency like that.
"You might as well play roulette. Is it going to be black or red? You can't be like that. As a manager, you've got to know who's in the trenches with you."
