Redfearn reacts to 'tough week' at Leeds, gives verdict on Blackburn defeat

The Leeds boss was speaking after his side's Championship clash with Blackburn Rovers.

Leeds United head coach Neil Redfearn admits it has been a 'tough week' at Elland Road, according to the club's official Twitter feed.

The Leeds boss had his assistant Steve Thompson suspended earlier this week and takeover talk has loomed over the club after a fresh report surfaced on Friday night.

As such, the 49-year-old was far from delighted after his side finished the tough period with a 3-0 loss against Blackburn Rovers.

But Redfearn believes it was only Rodolph Austin's sending off that changed the game in Blackburn's favour - compounded by the fact Leeds gave away two cheap goals.

And the Leeds boss was reluctant to say more after the game but admitted to LUTV that this has been a tough week.

He concluded with the phrase that 'enough people have done their talking' but Redfearn's tone in itself is indication enough of the manager's current frustration.

Where will Leeds go without Thompson? If today was any indication, the signs aren't good. The Yorkshire side were up against quality opposition in Blackburn, though, and, as Redfearn says, had a red card change the game for the worse.
