“Ruthless” Leeds United impress manager Neil Redfearn in victory at Fulham

19 March 2015

Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn was delighted with his side's ruthless streak in Wednesday night's win at Fulham in the Sky Bet Championship.

Despite the Cottagers starting brightly, goals from Sam Byram, Sol Bamba and Mirco Antenucci sealed an impressive 3-0 victory for the visitors, with the three points seeing Leeds climb to 12th in the table.

"I thought they were the better side in the first half, they had the better chances,” Redfearn told the club's official website.

"But Marco [Silvestri] was making the saves and we got bodies in the box. When we went down the other end, we were ruthless.

"Marco made two or three outstanding saves which kept the game at nil but, as the game wore on, we just got better and better. It finished three but it could have been anything – it could have been six."

Antenucci came off the bench to grab his ninth goal of the season, and the Leeds boss was pleased with the Italian striker's contribution.

"I’m pleased for Mirco tonight.

"I explained to him before about coming on and playing in different positions for us because we play a little bit differently now.

"We play with one up front and attack from wide. He’s got to occupy all positions and he’s getting his head around that.

“He came on tonight, buzzed about and looked bright. He took his goal really well."
