Clayton Donaldson believes Leeds United ‘will be fine’ this season

Leeds United

The Birmingham City striker played a key part in the victory over Leeds.

Donaldson set up Demarai Gray’s opening goal for Birmingham at Elland Road at the weekend, but speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, the striker has expressed his belief that Leeds will be fine this season as long as they can sort out their home form.

The 31-year-old striker said: “I think Leeds will be fine as they’ve got good players, decent players and their away record is not too bad. As long as they can find that home form, I think the home form is the most important and if they can get good home form and a good home run then that stands you in good stead.”

Donaldson has first-hand experience of working under Leeds head coach Uwe Rosler, and he believes that the German coach can end the Whites’ winless run - which currently sits at 10 games without victory at Elland Road.

If Leeds fail to beat Brighton at home in the first game following the international break, the Yorkshire-based club will set a new club record of 11 consecutive home games without picking up three points.

Despite this poor run of form, Leeds still sit away from the Championship relegation places, and due to it still being early in the season, they are only seven points away from the play-off places - where Birmingham currently sit.

One victory could be the catalyst to kick-start Leeds’ home form, with three points at Elland Road removing all the pressure currently associated with the stadium.

They only need a few wins to go shooting up the league table, and Donaldson clearly feels Leeds possess enough good players to ensure this is the likely occurrence.

It is hard to disagree with the striker considering the strength that Leeds currently have throughout their squad, and picking up that first win could prove so vital for the Whites in the coming weeks.
