Boss happy with current state of play...
Neil Warnock's LEEDS UNITED 2012/2013 "BATES OUT"

Leeds United will go into Friday's trip to Sheffield Wednesday (7.45pm) with manager Neil Warnock believing his side have "as good a chance as anybody" of mounting a serious assault on the Championship promotion places.

United resume the league campaign in seventh place, four points behind second-placed Leicester, and go into the game on the back of a run that has produced 10 points from a possible 12 and included wins against Nottingham Forest, Bristol City, and Barnsley.

"You have to make sure you don't get too down when you lose games," said the boss.

"We could have beaten Blackpool, and should have had winning goals in the last minute against Bolton and Blackburn.

"I'm not saying we're a top two team. We have a lot of new players, who have blended well. Ronnie Jepson has done well on the training ground and the lads have enjoyed it as well.

"I think we're as fit as anybody and we never say die. We had a period against Barnsley where they dominated us but we hung in there and got a result. That's the Championship for you.

"You're not going to play well every week, but I think we've improved over the past six weeks and if we can keep along that line and bring a few more in we've got a shout.

"There's the Leicesters and Cardiffs who have spent a lot of money, but it isn't always about the money.

"We're enjoying it, and the fans are something else. To take 5,000 to Sheffield on a Friday night is great."

Boss predicting lively derby clash...
Neil Warnock's LEEDS UNITED 2012/2013 "BATES OUT"

Neil Warnock is predicting a fast and furious contest when United lock horns with Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Friday (7.45pm)

United head for Wednesday for a competitive game for the first time since 2006 on the back of a good run in the league, knowing that victory will be enough to move into the top-six places.

The Owls haven't enjoyed the best of fortunes and have picked up just one league point since August. Wednesday kicked off the season by picking up seven points from a possible nine, but have lost six of their seven league games since that start.

"The start they had may have given them too many expectations," said the boss. "I don't think they've played badly, they've just given away silly goals. A bit like us.

"Dave (Jones) is like me, and he knows you just have to rectify it to get where you want to go.

"It'll probably be like wacky races when it gets going on Friday. It won't be like watching England play I can assure you of that."

The United boss is preparing himself a hostile welcome from the home crowd but he added: "I have my rivalry with them going back to Sheffield United, but I enjoy that. It's two great clubs on Friday, and I always enjoy going to Hillsborough."

It was a disjointed opening 10 minutes or so, but Wenesday had the first proper sight on goal when Paddy Kenny appeared to flap at a shot from distance - but the ball came back off the bar and into the United keeper's hands.

The Owls, who were enduring a barren run, appeared to take heart from the early moments and a well crafted chance was wasted with a poor finish.

Home goalkeeper Chris Kirkland was called into action on 20 minutes, though, when he had to be alert to claw away a well struck free-kick from Michael Tonge.

But the hosts felt aggrieved before the half-hour when their appeals for a penalty fell on deaf ears after claims that Luciano Becchio had handled a corner.

The home side were having the better of things, but when Tonge almost picked out Becchio with a cross, Wednesday goalkeeper Kirkland was all at sea, and you sensed a vulnerability at the back for Wednesday.

The first half was petering out into something of a stop-start affair with little fluency and the home side were clearly getting frustrated that they had not had the chance to build some momentum given their bright start.

But they did get their breakthrough two minutes before the interval when Jay Bothroyd converted a set piece with a well-placed header to beat the outstretched Kenny.

Warnock made a change at half-time with Rodolplh Austin, who had returned after the lengthy trip to represent Jamaica, being replaced by David Norris in the midfield.

There were a couple of early bookings for the home side as their physical approach continued and Tonge sent a free-kick just over Kirkland's bar after one foul on the edge of the box.

As the game passed the hour mark there was little in the way of entertainment as the clash was shaping up to be a real scrappy affair, but Bothroyd did fluff a half-chance for the home side. Anthony Gardner also won a corner after his shot was turned over the bar.

On 65 minutes, it was United who went on the front foot and after Michael Brown had a shot blocked there were appeals for a handball after Norris had an effort blocked.

United made an enforced change moments later when skipper Lee Peltier, who appeared to have picked up a knock, was replaced by Luke Varney.

And United were level with less than 15 minutes on the clock when Michael Tonge lashed home an equaliser. The celebrations were marred as Wednesday goalkeeper Kirkland received treatment following an apparent incident in the aftermath of the goal.

There were little in the way of further chances for either side as the game headed towards the five additional minutes of stoppage time.

Media statement issued after the final whistle at Hillsborough...

Leeds United Football Club would like to publicly apologise for and condemn the actions of the fan who came on to the pitch at Hillsborough and attacked Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland.

The club will fully co-operate with both the Police and the football authorities in identfying the individual concerned.

After the week football has endured, there is no place for that type of behaviour and the majority of Leeds United fans will be ashamed of his actions.
