Stuart Dallas claims Leeds have been hard to beat this season; stats back him up

Uwe Rosler

Leeds ace Stuart Dallas has praised the club's defensive ability.

Leeds United winger Stuart Dallas has told LUTV that he feels the club have proven they are hard to beat so far this season.

The Whites remain without a victory so far this term, having drawn each of their four Championship games under new manager Uwe Rosler.

Last weekend, it was a 1-1 draw at home to Sheffield Wednesday, and this weekend they face a Derby side who have also drawn all four of their games this season.

Speaking ahead of that game, winger Dallas told LUTV that Leeds have proven how hard to beat they are this season due to their defensive ability.

"I think we've got to be solid," said Dallas. "I think we've proved that we're hard to beat. We defend well from the front, and I think that's what you need. We've just got to touch up on a few things, and we're working hard on that," he added.

The stats show that Leeds have conceded just four goals this season, one of the fewest in the Championship so far this season, but they have also kept just one clean sheet from four games.

Leeds have also made the second highest amount of clearances this season with 100, which puts them only behind Ipswich Town, whilst they have also yet to make an error leading to a shot on goal this season.

An impenetrable wall in defence they aren't, but Rosler has a strong base to build on for the rest of the season. With more consistency from the likes of Marco Silvestri and Liam Cooper, Leeds should be very difficult to beat this season - giving Rosler a platform to build upon, especially with talented players in the final third such as Chris Wood and Dallas himself.
