Burnley v Leeds - Pre-match quotes

Through It All Together gathers the thoughts of both managers ahead of tonights Yorkshire-Lancashire clash.

Alex Livesey

Leeds head to Turf Moor tonight to face Burnley in yet another tough tuesday night Championship game.

Below are some quotes from both managers about the game:

Neil Warnock:

"One thing that is unique about Burnley is that the dressing rooms are underneath the away end and I'm told that the noise made by Leeds fans on previous visits has been deafening in there

"Our fans always make a lot of noise wherever we go, but you don't get much more inspiration than listening to that sort of noise when you're getting ready to go out or at half-time.

"It will be a different type of test to Brighton, but it'll be just as difficult. The way this league is, every point is valuable.

"At the start of the season when Becchio played well we played well. We lost Ross and Beccs hasn't been himself of late. We've looked to liven things up, but when you look at some of the sides in the top half they have that little bit more to choose from."

“I’m learning about that because from where I was there were only a couple of games that were deemed derbies, whereas here you could add five or six, other than the main one which is Blackburn

“It’s something I am getting used to, this idea of lots of either mini derbies or big derbies because of the close proximity of many clubs in the Championship up here, so I am looking forward to that and the players should be.

“They are on a nice little vein of form so they should be confident about what they are doing.

"I know Neil quite well

“He has been very good for myself and Malky (Mackay) in the past. He’s been very open with us. They will be tough, that’s how they play. Neil likes a tough mentality, as do I. "
