Caretaker Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn says all he can do is do the best he can and if that is enough to get him the job on a permanent basis that will be great.
Redfearn took over from Simon Grayson in midweek following the 4-1 home defeat by Birmingham City as caretaker manager whilst the club assess the applications for the vacant post.
The vastly experienced former midfielder who played for almost 25 years in the football league has been in charge of the Leeds youth system and reserve team since arriving at the club in January 2009.
Redfearn knows the final decision is out of his hands but wants to do his best whilst in temporary charge and if that is enough to earn him the full time post then great.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Redfearn said, “The powers of be at the club will decide who the new manager will be. What I want to do is make sure I do as well as I can whilst I am here. If it is me, great. If it is not then somebody else will come and do it and I will support them all the way.
“It was a good performance today and we cannot really look past that, it was one performance and it is early doors.”
Redfearn did his chances no harm with a comfortable 3-0 win at Bristol City, the clubs first away win since November.
Leeds had to whether the early pressure from the home side but took an half time lead when Robert Snodgrass scored with Leeds first real effort on goal just before half time.
The home side suffered further when James Wilson was shown a straight red card before half time and Yannick Bolasie was also given his marching orders in the first ten minutes of the second half.
Leeds wrapped the game up with goals in the final ten minutes by Ross McCormack and Luciano Becchio to move Leeds to within one point of the play off places.
Leeds have indicated that they will start to assess the applications they have received the vacant position this week, with Lee Clark and Neil Warnock the early favourites.
