Leeds United want to finish in the top 10 of the Championship this season, says head coach Uwe Rosler.

Leeds United head coach Uwe Rosler has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that finishing in the top 10 of the Championship this season remains his primary target.

Rosler made the comments following the Whites’ 1-1 draw with Brentford at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

The draw means that the West Yorkshire outfit are now 12th in the league table with eight points from six matches, just two points behind sixth-placed Hull City.

Rosler, who was appointed the Leeds head coach at the end of the 2014-15 season, has underlined his team’s ambition this season.

“It’s very important that we never lose our targets,” the 46-year-old told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “It was crystal clear in May that we wanted to be better and improve from last season.

“Hopefully we’ll finish top 10. That was, from day one, the target and that will not change.

“It will not change with an unbeaten run or when we maybe have one or two disappointing results. That’s what we’re aiming for and I think we’re on track to achieve that.”

Rosler seems to have made up his mind on what Leeds’ target should be this season, but he should revise them as the season progresses.

The Whites have a good and strong squad at the moment which is capable of at least challenging for a top-six finish in the Championship.

While finishing in the top 10 will be a progress for Leeds, they should still be pushing to finish higher.
