'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Pressure doesn't worry Connolly

Leeds United defender Paul Connolly says the players are not affected by the expectancy levels of the fans and he believes they can turn around their current poor form.

Leeds have picked up just one point from a possible nine in their last three games and have slipped out of the play off places.

Connolly says the pressure of signing for Leeds does not put off the players and confidence is still high in the camp.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post , Connolly said, "We all knew that (there would be pressure) when we put our signature on that contract to sign for this club.

"I`m not worried at all, me personally. I don`t think there`s signs of lads worrying in training and round and about the training ground day in, day out. I`m quietly confident we can turn it around.

"It`s up to us to dig ourselves out of it and go to Barnsley and produce in a local derby. The desire and passion was there at Derby, although the game was lacking in quality from start to finish."


Leeds face two games in three days starting with the trip to Barnsley on Saturday.

They will then be hoping to put their poor home form behind them when they entertain Burnley on Monday.

Leeds have won just one of their last six at home, picking up just five points from a possible eighteen.

The players were booed from the pitch in their last home game when they were beaten 1-0 by Reading in a lacklustre performance.

Connolly will be hoping to retain his place in the side for the next two games after dropping to the bench against Derby County on Boxing Day.

The right back was called upon in the first half to replaced Tom Lees after the youngster suffered a blow to the head.

Leeds are yet to make a decision on the inclusion of Lees, who is being assessed by the clubs doctors.
