Redfearn highlights what he wants from his Leeds players

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

Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn has been looking ahead to his side’s Championship match against Charlton Athletic on Tuesday evening.

Redfearn has recently returned to the role he previously took up on a temporary basis following the departure of Dave Hockaday, and he is keen for his side to rediscover the form they enjoyed during his brief spell earlier in the season.

In an interview with LUTV, Redfearn said of Charlton, “They are a good side it’s going to be a difficult game for us. I’m aware of them and I’m aware of what they do and how they play but I’m more interested in us.

“I’m more interested in the improvements we make. I want to get us back on track. I want to get us to where we were playing good football, we were positive, we were entertaining, we were scoring goals and I want us to win. I want us to get that winning mentality back.”

Redfearn enjoyed an outstanding spell as he oversaw a huge upturn in form following Hockaday’s departure, but Leeds have slipped considerably since then and lost 3-1 to Cardiff City at the weekend in the manager’s second ‘first’ game in charge.

The Addicks have slipped somewhat themselves after a stellar start but not to the extent of Leeds, with Bob Peeters’ side currently ninth in the Championship table, 10 places and seven points better off than tonight’s opponents.
