Leeds bounce back to spoil Ince return

Leeds 2 Blackpool 0

Paul Ince's return to the dugout with Blackpool was spoiled by a Leeds side who emerged from a period of their own managerial confusion to breathe life into their previously dying play-off hopes.

Leeds had not won in February and were on the verge of looking down rather than up – all while manager Neil Warnock was responding to fans' calls to quit by saying he would leave now if asked rather than abiding by his planned departure date at the end of the season.

But the 64-year-old proved there was life left in him as he galvanised his men to produce their best performance in months, with David Norris and Steve Morison scoring second-half goals that were due reward for a dominant display.
