Leeds United face Southampton in Capital One Cup game
11:07am Tuesday 30th October 2012 in Sport
A pledge made to his daughter by Leeds manager Neil Warnock is powering the club’s progress through the Capital One Cup.
United secured arguably the result of the third round when they knocked out Everton last time out, and another home draw is their reward, with Southampton heading to Elland Road tonight.
Should they be seen off, the Championship promotion hopefuls will be in the last eight and veteran boss Warnock will be a step closer to making the wish of daughter Amy come true.
She has told the 63-year-old she wants him to manage Leeds in the final at Wembley next year.
Said Warnock’s assistant Mick Jones: “Top managers don’t set sights on preferences but if Leeds United get to Wembley with Neil Warnock as manager, he would absolutely love it.”
