Warnock eyeing Leeds additions

24 October 2012

Leeds manager Neil Warnock revealed he is hoping to reinforce his side after watching them play out a "lethargic" 1-1 draw against Charlton at Elland Road.

It was not an evening either side will remember for long as apart from a period either side of half-time which saw Leeds' David Norris and Charlton's Dorian Dervite trade goals, the football on offer was truly horrible.

Warnock said: "We were lethargic - plodders.

"It was a game we should have won so we are disappointed but we were holding on for a point at the end when Paddy Kenny had to make an excellent save.

"Maybe it was the changes we had to make to the team, but if you get a point and play badly that's something.

"There was no zip about us, but I am talking to the chairman about trying to bring in some loan players because we need more options."

Norris stepped out of the shadows to stretch Leeds' unbeaten run to seven matches but Frenchman Dervite's equaliser on his debut earned a deserved point for Charlton.

Addicks manager Chris Powell felt his side's performance should have yielded more than a draw, however.

He said: "Our performance warranted all three. It was possibly a foul for their goal but we showed a lot of character to come back after they scored.

"It was great that Dorian Dervite scored on his debut. He is a centre-half by trade but we played him in a different role tonight. He came to us on trial in the summer and I felt he had enough to add something to our squad."
