After 4-3 loss, Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn has message for ownership

Neil Redfearn has said the club need backing from it's ownership.

Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn has outlined what the club need to move forward successfully, speaking to LUTV after the 4-3 defeat at Wolves.

Leeds battled back from 3-1 down to 3-3, before conceding a late header to lose 4-3.

That made it two successive losses over Easter, both coming after a shock development at the club last Thursday when assistant manager Steve Thompson was suspended.

Off the field, events at Leeds appear as tortured as ever, but head coach Neil Redfearn is positive on the pitch, and wants stability.

He said: "I'm delighted with the performance, the desire of the players, they want to do it for us. The supporters are with us.

"It just needs a chance, to get on its feet. This big club. What it needs now is it needs some guidance and some backing.

"We've got to move on, its important we finish the season strong for them lads in there because they deserve it."

Leeds are long out of the promotion race, but finishing the 2014/15 on a positive note will do a lot to lift the optimism at the club heading into the off-season.

Owner Massimo Cellino is due to return from his Football League suspension next month, and the reception he will receive from the support is unclear at this stage.

Ever since sporting director Nicola Salerno suspended Thompson, the situation at the club is in disarray, but Cellino could start to put things right by offering Neil Redfearn an extended contract to continue as a head coach and give the side the stability they crave.
