‘They are both important to our side’ – Redfearn hails Leeds pair

Leeds United 2

Neil Redfearn has been looking ahead to Leeds United's match against Fulham this weekend.

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn has hailed the strike partnership of Souleymane Doukara and Mirco Antenucci ahead of their match with Fulham.

The two forwards have scored 15 goals between them so far this season and Redfearn will be hoping they add to that tally when they welcome Fulham to Elland Road.

Writing in his programme notes ahead of the match, the Leeds boss said, “At home we are dangerous and going forward the partnership between Mirco Antenucci and Souleymane Doukara is a threat to all teams.

“They are both important to our side. They have both found their feet really quickly.”

Leeds looked like they had turned a corner when they defeated Championship leaders Derby County 2-0 recently. But a 4-1 reverse away to Ipswich Town in their very next fixture means the pressure is on against Fulham.

Ross McCormack will be up front for the visitors, but Redfearn will be hoping Leeds’ deadly duo have the last laugh; something they are more than capable of doing considering their form so far this season.
