Ugly win pleases McAllister

03 Mar 2008 - 12:07:16

Leeds United manager Gary McAllister was relieved to finally taste success for the first time since returning to the club as his side held on to beat Swindon Town 1-0 at the County Ground.

Tresor Kandol's first-half goal proved to be enough to end United's seven-match winless run - a sequence of results that had seen the club slip out of the play-off zone.

"When you come back into the game after being out for a while, there's nothing like winning," McAllister told United's official website.

"You work hard and prepare, and the things we worked on worked. It was an awkward one on Saturday, but we did all the ugly things really well.

"It would have been nice to get a second goal, and there were a few scary moments. There were blocks and headers, but I felt we deserved it.

"There's an old adage about the harder you work. These guys have been working hard and they deserved a break."
