Neil Redfearn has been speaking ahead of Leeds United's match against Bournemouth.

Leeds United caretaker manager Neil Redfearn has been speaking ahead of his side’s Championship match against Bournemouth on Tuesday evening.

Eddie Howe’s side are currently 13th in the table, six places higher than Leeds, but both sides will want to start turning draws into victories as they look to climb up the table.

In the corresponding fixture last season, Bournemouth beat tonight’s visitors 4-1, and Redfearn knows he is in for a tough task.

Speaking to the club’s official website, he said, “They have blown a lot of teams to pieces, especially at home. They are a good team and they are a good football side.

“I have said all along that this is probably the toughest game that we are going to have footballing wise. It is going to be a real test for us.”

Leeds drew 1-1 with Birmingham City on Saturday, and there were indications that they can start picking up more points in the near future.

After spending the last match as an unused substitute, tonight could see Brazilian loanee Adryan given a chance in United’s first-team, most likely from the bench.
