Leeds United are 'every away team's dream' says Birmingham City striker Clayton Donaldson

The striker was talking after his team won at Elland Road yesterday.

The 4th of February 2015, it should not be a significant day in the diary of Leeds United’s fanbase. However, that is in fact the last time that Leeds won a competitive game at home.

They defeated Ipswich Town that day with goals from Alex Mowatt and Billy Sharp coming either side of a Freddie Sears equaliser.

Elland Road should be a fortress considering the vocal support Leeds currently have and the amount of fans they pack into the stadium in Yorkshire.

Yesterday it was Birmingham City who came to Leeds. They won 2-0 thanks to goals from Demarai Gray and Jacques Maghoma and were rarely troubled by a sub-par Leeds.

One Birmingham City player even suggested that he enjoyed coming to play at Leeds at this moment in time. Striker Clayton Donaldson, who played under Leeds boss Uwe Rosler at Brentford, stated – as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post:

"You can feel the tension. They haven't won here for 7 months, it's every away team's dream."

That is certainly not something you want to hear from an opposing player. The fact is there is tension around Leeds. The club is desperate to return to the top-flight and recent events behind the scenes always have Leeds fans looking behind their backs wondering what is going to happen next.

Leeds need to get that monkey off their shoulder as soon as possible and can start with their next home match against Brighton and Hove Albion after the international break.
