Tommaso Bianchi taking confidence from Leeds United’s win v Derby County

Tommaso Bianchi believes that Leeds United’s victory over Derby County in the Championship last weekend has given the players more confidence.

Leeds United midfielder Tommaso Bianchi has said that last weekend’s victory over Derby County in the Championship have given the side more confidence.

The West Yorkshire outfit got the better of the league leaders 2-0 at Elland Road, thanks to a brace from Mirco Antenucci.

“We are a young team with young players,” Bianchi told Leeds’s official website. “We have time to improve, but for me we are on the right path. After the last match which we won, we have more confidence."

The victory has lifted Leeds up to 15th in the Championship table with 23 points from 19 matches, five points above the relegation zone.

However, given the strength and depth in the Whites’ squad, they should be expected to rise further up the standings and at least fight for a place in the top six.

Leeds are back in action on Saturday when they take on Ipswich Town away from home in the Championship.
