Neil Warnock believes Leicester City will finish top of Championship
Leeds United boss Neil Warnock believes his side are facing the best squad in the Championship tonight when Leicester City visit Elland Road.
Warnock's men beat second-placed Crystal Palace on Saturday, But he says City are the best-equipped to go for automatic promotion.
"I think Palace are the best team in the league at the moment, but now we have to face Leicester, who have the best squad in the league," said Warnock.
"I think they will probably finish at the top of the league at the end of the season.
"Leicester have got a fabulous squad. Yes, they have spent a lot of money, but they still have to spend it correctly and he (City boss Nigel Pearson) has some really good players. If we could finish above them, we would be automatically promoted.
"Cardiff and Leicester have spent decent money and that is why they are where they are. I think they will be looking forward to getting into that Promised Land."
Leeds have been buoyed by the completion of the drawn-out takeover of the club and now have financial resources of their own.
Warnock has brought in Jerome Thomas on loan from West Bromwich Albion and Alan Tate from Swansea, and admits it has boosted his team's fortunes.
"It was important not just to beat Palace, but perform well. The new players gave us all a lift," he said. "The Leicester game will be ever so difficult."
