Leeds United head coach Neil Redfearn says he told his players to be positive despite a fourth straight loss.
Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn has urged his side to be positive despite a fourth successive defeat.
Speaking after the 2-0 home loss to Norwich City, he was quoted by the Leeds United official twitter feed, stating he does not want his players to feel sorry for themselves.
Redfearn explained that the quality of opponents Norwich City means that the players should not be overly crestfallen after the home loss.
Redfearn: "I've told the lads to get their heads up, we've got to go again. Norwich are up there for a reason." #lufc— Leeds United FC (@LUFC) April 14, 2015
Norwich are in the automatic promotion spots after picking up form under manager Alex Neil, and they looked accomplished during their win at Elland Road.
Goals from former Leeds hero Jonny Howson and Graham Dorrans sealed Leeds' fate, with the latter missing a first half penalty.
Leeds have not won a game since assistant boss Steve Thompson was controversially suspended a fortnight ago.
A problem they are currently facing is their opponents, recently included Norwich and Wolves, are battling away in the promotion race, and possess and edge which their side currently lacks, safe from relegation but mathematically incapable of reaching the play-offs.
