Christiansen: This is what Warnock will do in Leeds clash v Cardiff

By Danny Wright

Thomas Christiansen believes that Cardiff boss Neil Warnock will do whatever it takes to earn his side a win against Leeds United on Tuesday nights.

The Whites travel to the Cardiff City Stadium level on points with their midweek hosts at the top of the Championship standings in what is undoubtedly the biggest fixture of the season so for for both sides.

Leeds and Cardiff, along with Wolves, are all on 20 points at the summit of the table and anything less than a win for Christiansen’s men could see them fall off their perch after the midweek action.

Warnock has a bit of a bad reputation among Leeds supporters from his poor spell as manager, which saw him sacked in 2013 as relegation from the second-tier looked a real possibility.

However things have since turned around at Elland Road as they look in their best shape to secure promotion to the Premier League in a long time.

Christiansen is now expected the Bluebirds boss to throw everything he has at him in Tuesday’s big encounter.

“Neil Warnock will do everything he can to win, and motivate his players. This is a game against his former club, and for sure he will want the three points,” said the Leeds boss, as quoted on the club’s official Twitter account on Monday after his pre-match press conference.

Leeds go into the game knowing that Pontus Jansson and Pierre-Michel Lasogga are both available after the centre-back was out with injury at the week while the German striker has come back to Yorkshire after the birth of his daughter.
