Boss Neil Warnock praised his Leeds side for a "fantastic week" after two second-half goals from El-Hadji Diouf had secured three npower Championship points with a 3-2 victory at Bristol City.

The visitors followed up a win over Nottingham Forest and a memorable Capital One Cup success against Everton with another accomplished performance.

Warnock said: "What a fantastic week. To beat Forest, Everton and Bristol City over such a short space of time with seven players out injured is tremendous.

"We passed the ball too much in the first half and I always felt we could step up a gear. Bristol were unlucky with injuries but we had a goal disallowed, which I felt was harsh.

"I think we are still some way away from having Premier League potential. At this level you are judged on the strength of your bench and we have been bringing on first year professionals.

"But I can't praise the lads enough. I named pretty much the same team as played against Everton and that was a really tough game so to come up with another victory did them great credit."

City manager Derek McInnes said: "George has a shocking injury with a break and dislocation to an ankle. I am so sorry for the lad because his season is over.

"We keep slitting our own throats with defensive errors and you can't always score a boatload of goals to win games.

"I'm annoyed because I keep having to stand here and make the same comments. It's my responsibility to make us defend better and that was why I brought George in.

"Now I have to look at the left-back position again. We also lost substitute Joe Bryan with concussion so it is a big problem."
