Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn has told the Yorkshire Evening Post what he feels has happened to his team over the past few weeks.
Leeds were superb away from home last night to secure an impressive 2-0 win away at Reading and Redfearn feels the team has been building confidence and momentum over a number of matches.
“The season’s still well alive for us and in the last six or seven games we’ve been playing proper Championship football,” said the boss.
“We’ve been difficult to beat and we’ve come out the right side of most of the games. We’ve got go on from here now.”
Leeds have won three out of their last four games, with wins against Bournemouth, Huddersfield and Reading with a defeat against Brentford thrown in.
The side have been settling down well in recent matches and the boss seems to have found his best formula on the road.
Alex Mowatt came back into the side last night to give Leeds an extra man in midfield, which made it more difficult for Reading to build pressure.
The importance of the team maintaining their good form over the next few weeks is extremely high.
It will give the players, and the manager, a big mental lift if they can stop looking down at the relegation places and up towards the top half of the table.
If Leeds can create an even bigger gap between themselves and the bottom three, it will also give Redfearn the luxury of being able to take a few more risks and experimenting with different things.
He’s right, the side have to move on and make sure they get themselves into an even safer position and make the most of the momentum they have created.
