Leeds United’s Sol Bamba makes a confident claim

Leeds United have not won a single game at Elland Road in the Championship this season.

Leeds United defender Sol Bamba has told the club’s official website that he and his teammates are not panicking.

The West Yorkshire outfit are aiming for a top-10 finish in the Championship this season, but they are struggling at the moment.

As things stand, Leeds are 16th in the league table with 11 points from 10 matches, just three points above the relegation zone.

Uwe Rosler’s side have yet to win a home game, despite over 20,000 fans on average attending league matches at Elland Road.

Ivory Coast international centre-back Bamba, though, has insisted that there is nothing to panic about and is confident that Leeds will start winning home matches soon.

“We can’t panic,” the 30-year-old told Leeds’ official website. “That’s the message. We have to stay positive. I know it’s difficult but we have to stay positive and not show any panic.

“After one home win things will change,” added Bamba. “It is all about getting that first one. The home record is annoying.

"We need to address it very quickly. If you want to do anything in this league, you need to be strong at home.”

It will not be easy for Leeds to win their next home match, though, as it is against Championship leaders Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Whites will head into that match on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Birmingham City at Elland Road.

However, the international break allows head coach Rosler the chance to analyse what is going wrong in home matches and come up with a plan to get the better of Brighton.
