Leeds Send For Ex-Imp – But Hughes & O’Neil Favourite

Leeds have joined, Sheffield United,  Huddersfield Town,  Crystal Palace,  QPR,  Plymouth, Notts County, Oldham et al in dispensing with the services of Neil Warnock with 6 games to go. Mark Hughes and Martin O’Neil may be the favourite to take over but Leeds have been quick to replace Warnock with Neil Redfearn who played 100 League games as a midfielder for  The Imps between 1984 and 1986 scoring 13 goals

Rumours suggest that Redfearn may be in charge until the end of the season. The Reserve Team  and Development Squad Manager has been caretaker manager before, taking over from Simon Grayson in 2012. During his February stint United won 2 and lost two of his 4 games. Many managers would be delighted with a 50% success rate.
