Leeds United boss Neil Warnock happy with return to form

Leeds United manager Neil Warnock was happy with how his side controlled the game in their victory over Southampton in the League Cup.

The Championship side beat the Saints 3-0 to secure a spot in the last eight.

"We didn't let them have a look in, we were really up for it," he told BBC Radio 5 live.

"We played really poorly in our last couple of games and I didn't enjoy either of them but we were excellent again tonight."

After seeing his side register their first win in four matches Warnock reserved special praise for 34-year-old midfielder Michael Brown.

"Michael went on a run in the second half and I said to him afterwards 'that was like 15 years ago, you can't do that anymore'," he added.

"He's got a terrific attitude and I thought he was probably one of the fittest players on the pitch."

The Elland Road side have now reached the quarter-finals of the competition for the first time since 1996, when they went on to lose to Aston Villa in the final.
