Millwall 1-0 Leeds United: Post Match Quotes

Quotes from both managers following Leeds United's 1-0 defeat away to Millwall.

Charlie Crowhurst

Below are quotes from both Neil Warnock and Kenny Jackett follwing Millwall's 1-0 win over United at the New Den.

Neil Warnock:

"We all thought the sending off was harsh. He's gone back with his arm and his elbow, but not into his face. When you see it again you can see where he catches the player then see the player hold a different part of his face and start rolling around.

I would have expected an experienced referee like that to deal with that. It was a turning point, but that's the way things are going at the moment. There's not a lot going for us at all.

And I thought we should have had a penalty when the lad was all over all Tom Lees, but the referee is in a poor position and linesmen don't flag when it's a hostile environment like this. It's a clear penalty so you have to ask why he didn't flag, but it summed up the day.

We went with a positive selection and in the second second half we were going to change it a bit and be more positive. Then that kills you really.

I thought the lads played well. You can't fault them for effort. At 11 v 11 it was there for the taking. We had nullified them to long range shots, and with Ross on the bench we could win the game."

Kenny Jackett:

"It was a real quality goal that decided it - a fantastic ball from Shane and Chris was in the right place at the right time.

Any win in the Championship is hard-earned and this was no exception.

Millwall v Leeds games are always very passionate. We're pleased to come out on top against a side as big as Leeds."
