1 assist, 67 touches - 'Brilliant' Leeds star Warnock shines against Charlton

Elland Road pitchside

Stephen Warnock impressed Leeds fans with his display against Charlton on Tuesday night.

Still... Leeds United are without a win.

A 2-2 draw with Charlton Athletic last night meant Neil Redfearn is now two games without a victory since being appointed Leeds boss on a permanent basis, with the club's winless run dating back several weeks further.

But, as ever, there were positives at Elland Road.

And one of the main ones was the performance of left-back Stephen Warnock. The Leeds full-back registered an assist and impressed fans with a display full of attacking vibrance.

As Opta stats show, the experienced 32-year-old landed two accurate crosses against Charlton, the highest tally of any Leeds player. Warnock was also the only player from Redfearn's side to win a dribble.

Along with goalscorer Alex Mowatt, meanwhile, Warnock created three chances, while he took 67 touches of the ball - only bettered by Sam Byram.

Impressively, the left-back entered the final third 15 times, more than any other Leeds player once again.

Fans were understandably pleased with his performance after the game on Twitter, with many now calling for Warnock to be given the left-back spot over Gaetano Berardi every week.
