Simon Grayson was a happy man on Saturday evening after taking all three points against Cheltenham Town after two poor performances by his side in the last week.
Speaking on the ITV website Grayson said 'The players showed they could handle the pressure after those two defeats and we have given ourselves a chance to get into the play-offs."
Leeds beat Cheltenham Town 2-0 thanks to two second half goals from Jon Howson, although they actually had 22 attempts on goal, continuing Gryason said 'Their keeper was outstanding in the first half and on another day we could have won by a lot more goals."
It was great to see last seasons rising star Howson back to some of the form he showed last term with his two second half goals, Grayson was quick to recognise Howson`s contribution to the win when he said 'Jonny has done well since I have been here. He used his energy levels to make some excellent runs into their box without reward in the first half but kept going, didn't hide and took his goals well.'
Leeds are now right back in the promotion picture with them being only three points behind fourth place. The next two games could well se whether Leeds are really up for the fight to gain a play off place, next up is fourth place Scunthopre United at Elland Road on Saturday followed by a trip to fifth place Oldham Athletic on Monday night in front of the Sky TV cameras.
