Leeds manager Neil Warnock is relishing the chance of crossing swords with promotion-chasing West Ham at Elland Road next weekend.

Former Sheffield United boss Warnock has not clashed with West Ham since the infamous Carlos Tevez affair in 2007 which saw the Blades relegated from the Premier League.

Warnock said: "I don't think anyone will need motivation against West Ham, one of the biggest clubs in the country, and I'm looking forward to Saturday very much."

Tevez scored West Ham's winner at Old Trafford five years ago while the Blades lost at home to Wigan. Warnock's side were relegated as a result despite it later emerging that Tevez had been ineligible to play when he netted the vital goal.

Leeds climbed to within four points of the play-offs after securing their first win under Warnock at Middlesbrough on Sunday and talk of promotion has not been dismissed.

Warnock added: "Anything's possible. We've got 10 games left, that's 30 points, but we'd need a fantastic run because there's some good teams below the play-offs, not just in the play-offs. [The players] have all got to play at the top of their level for us to get the results."
