Leeds United boss Neil Warnock has asked the fans to get behind the team in the next three games and leave him alone.
Warnock has come in for criticism in the past few games, with chants from the crowd asking him to leave his job as Leeds boss.
Leeds face a tricky run of fixtures with a home clash against Blackpool on Wednesday night next up and they are likely to be buoyed by having a new manager in place in time for the game, with Paul Ince likely to take over at Bloomfield Road today.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio after the game at Manchester City on Sunday, Warnock said, “We have three games coming up and we have to get at least seven points from those three games.
“I hope that the fans get behind us and leave me alone for three games. I think a lot has been said in the past few weeks and we just have to do our best.
“You cannot please everybody but we have got to try and get three points on Wednesday against another new manager.”
Warnock celebrates twelve months in charge at Elland Road today and he feels that he now has the club in a much more stable position that when he took over from Simon Grayson. ,em>”We have turned the club around completely in my twelve months. We have genuine lads and we do need to strengthen in two or three areas. I am sure if I am not here, it will make it much easier for the new manager, so we just need to keep going,” added Warnock.
After the game with Blackpool on Wednesday night, Leeds then face a tricky trip to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday. Rovers have been resurgent since the arrival of new manager Michael Appleton at Ewood Park and they caused the shock result in the FA Cup at the weekend with a 1-0 win at Arsenal.
Leeds then come up against Millwall at Elland Road, a game that has always had a bit of extra spice in the past few seasons.
With away trips to Leicester City and Crystal Palace next on the agenda after Millwall, it is imperative that Leeds pick up a minimum of six points or they may start looking nervously over their shoulder rather than at the teams above them.
