Hughes still has Leeds hope

29 October 2012

Former Leeds midfielder Andy Hughes wishes he was still at the club and feels Neil Warnock is the right man to lead them back to the top flight.

Hughes, now at Charlton, spent three years at Leeds from 2007 to 2010 and returned for the first time with his current club for the recent draw at Elland Road.

Hughes missed the game through injury, and when asked about Leeds' transition under Warnock, said: "Club's go through stages and I think it is on the mend. I watch Leeds on the telly, I support them and Neil Warnock is getting the best out of what he can."

He added: "The key for me with Warnock, he was my manager at Oldham when I was 17, he knows what players need to get a result. He knows what players he needs to do that.

"This is the first time I've been back. I wanted to come back with a team and I'm gutted I have this injury. I've started running and I'm about a month away from fitness.

"Every Leeds fan and player should expect to win every home game. I'm gutted that I'm not still here (at Leeds)."
