Current Leeds United captain Stephen Warnock admits club are in a relegation 'fight'

Stephen Warnock

Leeds are in a dreadful fun of form which sees them 20th in the Championship.

Times are tough at the moment for Leeds United. Without a win in four games, since defeating Derby County at the end of November, they are slipping down the table on a weekly basis.

Currently they sit in 20th position as Neil Redfearn's second spell in charge of the first-team is going a lot less smoother than his first.

Not many players have covered themselves in glory for Leeds but in recent weeks Stephen Warnock has reclaimed his place among the Leeds regulars. He has even found himself as the new captain under Redfearn.

The former England international and Liverpool left-back would like to be fighting for promotion from the Football League, in an ideal world. But he is under no illusions. He has explained to LUTV that he realises the club are in a fight but that the team has the ability to do just that:

"We are in a fight.

"Potentially we are good enough to pull away from it. We have goalscorers and we have ability to get away from it but we need a fighting spirt and hopefully that will come to the fore."

Leeds fans will certainly hope for a change in fortune soon because they know better than anyone how hard it can be to escape the third tier of English football.
