Redfearn explains the problems facing the Leeds United squad

Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn is aiming for improvements and a win against Charlton.

Leeds United head coach Neil Redfearn has backed his team to improve following defeat against Cardiff City over the weekend.

Redfearn saw his side go down 3-1 due to avoidable defensive errors, which allowed the Welsh side to create a lead and then protect it throughout the game.

However, rather than dwelling on the negatives, Redfearn is looking ahead to the match against Charlton tomorrow night, which creates a chance for his side to put three points on the board.

“It’s a two steps forward, one step back situation. We’re capable of beating anyone on our day but sides are capable of beating us too,” Redfearn is quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“We’ve just got to make sure that we start getting results and make sure we get a lot stronger over the season.”

“There’s two home games coming up now which is good. It was always going to be a tough ask to go to Cardiff and get something.”

Redfearn has attributed the inconsistency from Leeds this season to the idea that the players haven’t had the chance to settle under a first team manager.

Redfearn is in his second spell in charge already this season, with the Leeds squad having played under three different managers so far this season.

“That’s not to say this team won’t get beaten because they’re in a bit of flux but the team’s young and there are a lot of new signings in it. They will get better.”

Redfearn has implied that nothing has changed in terms of the team’s preparation for the game against Charlton or the match against Blackpool, which follows. Two wins from two would kick start Leeds heading in the right direction and up towards the play-offs.

Wins breed confidence and create a winning mentality, which is lacking at the club right now as Leeds haven’t won a match since Redfearn’s first spell in charge of the team.
