Former manager Kevin Blackwell is preparing for a court battle with Leeds in his fight for compensation.

Blackwell, who led Leeds to the brink of the Barclays Premiership last season, believes he has no option other than to sue the Yorkshire club after he was sacked two months ago. Leeds chairman Ken Bates has declined to enter into compensation talks with Blackwell´s representatives, the League Managers Association.

"We would have preferred to keep it out of court," LMA chief executive John Barnwell told PA Sport. "But it would appear Leeds don´t want to negotiate a settlement."
