Leeds United left-back Charlie Taylor shares his theories on recent good form

Elland Road

The defender has recently returned to action after a bout of glandular fever.

Leeds United take on Nottingham Forest this afternoon at the City Ground in a massive Championship fixture.

Both teams go into the game in a good run of form and will be hoping to keep that up in a battle between perhaps the Championship's two biggest clubs.

Leeds are on a great streak, winning three of their last four games and it is no coincidence that this improvement in form coincided with the return to action of left-back talent Charlie Taylor.

He returned to action in the 1-0 loss at QPR at the end of November after a serious bout of glandular fever.

Speaking to LUTV this week, ahead of the Forest fixture, Taylor was hypothesising about just why Leeds have finally found some form.

He had this to say:

"I'm not sure really. I remember the Hull game at home we switched to a five in midfield and maybe you could say that but it's all sorts of things. I think if you look at our stats we are running more now, I think everybody is just working together as a team. there's a real togetherness now and things are paying off on the pitch."

The Leeds players as a whole have been performing better in the past few weeks but Taylor is being modest not to recognise the part he has clearly played in the recovery of form at Leeds United in the past 3-4 weeks.

He will be hoping that this evening will be no different.
