Leeds United caretaker boss Redfearn: I didn't see that coming!

Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn has said he did not see Leeds United's comeback victory happening.

Leeds United defeated an impressive Bournemouth side 3-1 away from home, thanks to a lively second half turnaround.

Andrew Surman's goal had put the Cherries 1-0 up, before an equaliser from Souleymane Doukara in the 27th minute levelled the scores.

A wonderful free-kick from Giuseppe Bellusci put Leeds ahead before Mirko Antenucci scored a late third to wrap the game up.

Caretaker manager Neil Redfearn has admitted he did not see the result coming the way the game appeared to be going.

He said: "I didnt see it coming, in the first half, I thought they were excellent.

"For an hour they really put us to the sword. They played 4-4-2 and got balls from wide areas into the box, and were inventive. We were at full tilt hanging on to stay with them, but that's what we did.

"I think in the end that's got us the result, the fact we had the mental toughness to tough it out, you know when it was 1-0 when it weren't so good.

"I thought if we can get to half time and look at it and tinker with it a little bit (we could turn it around), and I thought the lads applied themselves really well for the whole 90 mins even when it wasn't so good."
