BLACKPOOL travel to Leeds tonight, and for once aren’t the crisis club on show.

Paul Ince’s appointment this week ends three months of turmoil at Bloomifeld Road.

And it will be nice for the Seasiders to be the settled side on show at Elland Road tonight.

It’s been another lively season in the history of Leeds United, with a big-money takeover bid last year.

And now manager Neil Warnock has suggested his stay at the club could be coming to an end.

“If we don`t go up, I won`t be there,” he said.

“I think the fans have known it all along and we are eight points off the play-offs now, so it isn`t rocket science.

“I think the club will be sensible about it and I don`t want to leave them in the lurch because I think it is a great club and I think in the next couple of years, they will be back in the big time.”

Leeds haven’t won in four games and sit two points above Pool 12th place in the Championship.

Their run has prompted the impatient Leeds faithful to call for Warnock’s departure, but he’s pleaded with his fans for patience this week.

“We have three games coming up and we have to get at least seven points from those three games,” he said.

“I hope that the fans get behind us and leave me alone for three games. I think a lot has been said in the past few weeks and we just have to do our best. You cannot please everybody but we have got to try and get three points against another new manager.”
