Football - Redfearn upbeat despite defeat

Leeds caretaker manager Neil Redfearn was disappointed with the last-minute defeat as they went down 2-1 at Charlton, but was pleased with the response of the players after Neil Warnock departed Elland Road in the week.

The game looked to be heading for a draw after substitute Luke Varney cancelled out Johnnie Jackson's opener but Jonathon Obika popped up to condemn Leeds to their fourth straight defeat.

But Redfearn said: "I thought the performance and application was good, I thought we were unlucky at the finish because we should have got a couple of decisions,"

"From a performance point of view, I thought we went a goal down against the run of play - we were doing well up to that point.

"Whenever the manager leaves, it's upsetting - these are players that Neil Warnock signed. But they've applied themselves well.

"I thought it was good performance without being spectacular, it was a poor surface. They will be disappointed, but they've been professional at what they've done."
