The Championship outfit are in talks with several potential investors, and Warnock believes that the impressive scalp could speed up negotiations.
"There are ongoing talks with a number of parties and they've been talking to one group for quite a few months now," he told talkSPORT.
"Everyone is just crossing their fingers really because we do need an investment.
"The potential [is there], how many other teams get 30-odd thousand fans in? That's what you're talking about when you talk about Leeds. So last night's result hopefully would have given them all a bit of a push."
