LEEDS United boss Neil Warnock has declared himself happy with the Whites’ unbeaten pre-season campaign.

A 1-0 win at Burton last night – courtesy of Luke Varney’s first half goal – made it seven matches without defeat and the manager is pleased with the way his players have been building towards the season proper, which kicks off with a Capital One Cup tie against Shrewsbury on Saturday.

He has been gradually bedding in his new signings, the latest of which, right-back Lee Peltier and midfielder Rodolph Austin played their first game at Burton.

Warnock said: “The new lads got a game and that was important.

“You wouldn’t have thought that they were new to the team. They settled in straight away.

“We’re still lacking a few goals, but we’ve improved every time we’ve played.

“I thought it was a good work-out, no holds barred and nobody holding back. It’s looking quite promising at the minute.”
