Leeds star: It was the best we'd played for a while, and Elland Road can inspire us

Leeds United's Sam Byram confident ahead of upcoming clashes.

Leeds United defender Sam Byram is brushing aside the club's loss to Brentford and hoping the familiarity of Elland Road can drive the side on.

The club face Reading tonight, and then Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, and will be aiming to follow up their last home fixture.

That was the 3-0 win over Huddersfield, and Byram is hopeful the side can turn on the style.

He told Leeds United TV: "We've got two games at home now, you've seen how well we played the previous home game.

"I'd say it's the best we've played for a while, so I think a lot of the lads will be excited to play in front of a home crowd again."

It is the perfect tonic for the weekend loss, which will be put down to an anomaly of players getting to know new manager Darko Milanic if Leeds can get back on track against Reading.

Games always tend to have even more atmosphere when played under the lights in the evening, which should play into the side's hands as fans look to the game with real anticipation.

The mood around the club is clearly one of confidence, and if they do get a win over Reading tonight, it would be hard to be against a win over Sheffield Wednesday days later.
