Redfearn jokes winger would look better playing for Leeds United

Leeds United 2

Leeds beat Millwall 1-0 at the weekend at the home manager was in buoyant mood after the victory.

Neil Redfearn's Leeds United moved up to 12th position in the Championship this weekend, beating relegation battlers Millwall 1-0 at Elland Road.

The match also saw Millwall's Martyn Woolford go up against the team which tried to sign him on loan in the transfer window, telling the Yorkshire Evening Post he believed the winger would have given them the balance he wanted.

Leeds were able to limit Woolford's attacking impact, who had four shots at goal but none on target.

After the game head coach Neil Redfearn seemed to express a bit of regret he was not lining up in a Leeds shirt, but also admitting he has moved on.

He told BBC Radio Leeds: "Martyn's a good player, a good footballer. It didn't quite happen fo him today but he had one shot that just scraped the bar. If you'd have stuck him in our side he might've looked a bit different.

"That's football, it's water under the bridge. The best player on the pitch was Alex Mowatt, I can't moan in that position, long may that continue."

With Mowatt the match winner, it may just have worked out well for Leeds that they were unsuccessful in their Woolford pursuit.

While they do need an answer on the left-hand side, if Mowatt can fill the position then they may even have found a long-term solution.

Woolford is however out of contract in the summer and with no deal agreed with Millwall, there remains a possibility that interest could be revived when the season is over.
