No argument from United manager after latest red card...
There were no complaints from United boss Neil Warnock about the red card given to Michael Brown during Monday's game against Derby County at Elland Road.
Brown became the second central midfielder of the weekend to see red when he followed in the footsteps of Zac Thompson, who was dismissed at Reading on Friday, and like his team-mate, the experienced midfield man is now facing a three-match suspension that will rule him out until the final day.
While Brown was disappointed with a decision that all-but ends his season, the boss said he could understand why the referee produced the card.
He said: "The referee did say to Pughy before the game that he'd watched our game on Friday and he'd be watching and all that, so he was pre-meditated in his own mind, but I've no complaints really. It's just disappointing."
While Thompson is banned for the games against Peterborough and Blackpool, Brown will also sit both out, plus the trip to Cardiff City on Saturday week. Adam Clayton is available again after suspension, but the manager says he will continue to shuffle his pack.
"We have to look at everyone now," he said. "We've nothing to play for other than the pride really so we've got to look at a few things."
One player who came into the side against Derby was Ramon Nunez, who was handed his first start under the new manager. The Honduran started in a role that saw him playing just behind front men Luciano Becchio and Ross McCormack, and he is likely to be given the same opportunity against Peterborough next weekend.
"The lad's not fit enough because he hasn't played, and he tried his hardest," added the manager.
"It was difficult to do that role with only 10 men but I thought he showed promise here and there.
"Hopefully he will play Saturday again and we might be able to give him an opportunity with a full team to see what he can do."
