Ross McCormack believes the goal against Burnley at the end of last season took a lot of pressure off him going into this season.
McCormack signed from Cardiff City at the start of last season failed to score in any of his first 19 appearances last season but finished the season of in style, scoring the winner in the final two games of the season.
McCormack scored his first goal for the club in the penultimate game of the season against Burnley and he followed it up with the winner at Queens Park Rangers a week later.
The Scotland international now admits that those goals helped take a lot of pressure of him going into the season.
Speaking on Sky Sports, McCormack said, "I think it was massive. If I had come into this season having not scored a goal I think there would have been a lot of pressure on me, a lot more pressure.
"This season I knew that if I was going to stay in the team I would have to score goals and I have been looking to get into goalscoring positions a lot more, in between the centre halves."
McCormack is currently the joint top goalscorer in the championship having netted nine times in fifteen games.
He also rates his recent goal against Doncaster Rovers, when he scored with a bicycle kick as the best of his career.
The 25 year old is currently in something of a drought having not scored in his last four games, since that goal at Doncaster.
McCormack is still looking dangerous and full of confidence and only great saves have stopped him netting in the last two games.
The striker will be hoping to get back amongst the goals when Leeds entertain Blackpool at Elland Road on Wednesday night.
