Warnock keeps faith in Quinn

Neil Warnock has admitted that Stephen Quinn is playing too well to be left out of the Sheffield United side at present.
Quinn marked only his second Premiership appearance for The Blades with a stunning goal in Monday's 2-2 draw with Aston Villa.
Nine days earlier he had made his debut as he stepped in for injured brother Alan in the 2-1 victory over Charlton.
Warnock has been delighted with the way Quinn has taken to life in the top flight, and confirmed that he would start Saturday's clash against Wigan.
Warnock also warned some of the more senior Sheffield United players, including Alan Quinn, that they would have to work hard to edge back ahead of him in the pecking order.
"I was pleased for Stephen. I think he was surprised I picked him (against Villa), but I felt he deserved it after his debut," said Warnock.
"He didn't let me down. He's not the biggest, but he's confident and he has more ability than people think.
"It's up to the other lads to come and take the shirt off him. But I can't leave him out on Saturday now."
