LEEDS manager Neil Warnock was left frustrated that two priceless points had been lost in their pursuit of a place in the play-offs.

An injury-time equaliser from central defender Danny Batth ensured that Wolves stayed out of the relegation zone - but only on goal difference.

Batth’s late, late show denied Leeds what would have been a hard-fought win after they bounced back from falling behind following an own goal by captain Lee Peltier with a strike from Luke Varney and a Ross McCormack penalty.

“The frustration for me is that we have just played Cardiff City and Wolves and we should have had six points and I have got one out of both games,” said Warnock, whose side had lost their previous four away games in the Championship.

“I want to get into the play-offs and I am disappointed that we are not in the play-offs and games are running out.

“I want to go up. I think I am more frustrated than anybody. It is all right for the players they are all young and they can play for years to come.

“I want to get into the play-offs so I am frustrated over the last two games.

“But I am ever so pleased the way we have played since the Barnsley debacle. It is good for the future.

“At least I have the team that I want together at the moment.

“I can’t fault anyone now. This is the team that I would like in the trenches with me if we were going to war. You know what I am like.

“Everyone is genuine. A manager asks for them to give their all and they did today. But the games are running out.

“I want to get promotion and that is why I came here.

“I have the players I want now. The new owners have been supportive and we have players who want to play for the club and that is half the battle at a place like Leeds.

“I was really proud of them today and we will give it a good shot in the last 16 games.”
