Leeds United defender Patrick Kisnorbo says the side showed their character in last weekends win at Leicester City.
Leeds went into the game on the back of a 5-0 home defeat by Blackpool and Kisnorbo says the 1-0 win at Leicester showed the strength of character within the squad.
Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Kisnorbo said, "We showed the character of the team and the players we have in our squad (at Leicester. Those sort of results against Blackpool sometimes happen and it was like a freak. But the character we showed to get a result against a team that has spent fifteen or so million pounds was quite remarkable and we did a great job.
"We did our basics correctly and that was the difference. Our game plan we worked on all week came through."
Kisnorbo is enjoying a run in the side again following the injury to Darren O`Dea recently.
The Australia international has been missing from the side in mid September following his sending off against Bristol City.
Youngsters Darren O`Dea and Tom Lees have struck up an excellent partnership in the centre of the Leeds defence.
Lees missed the Leicester game through suspension and it gave another experienced defender a chance.
Andy O`Brien lined up alongside Kisnorbo at Leicester and the pair put in a tremendous performance to limit the Leicester attack to very few chances.
With O`Dea and Lees expected to be back in the squad for Leeds next trip to Burnley, it gives Leeds boss Simon Grayson a welcome headache in the centre of the Leeds defence.
