LUFC White - Experience will give us motivation

Young Leeds United defender Aidan White is hoping the performance and experience at Emirates on Monday night can give them the motivation to win promotion this season.

White is enjoying a successful season for Leeds at left back having made 25 appearances.

He has also made his breakthrough into the Republic of Ireland under 21 side, playing all five of their international matches this season and scoring his first goal in their last game against Liechtenstein.

Leeds held the Gunners for 78 minutes until Thierry Henry scored the only goal of the game and White is now hoping to take what he learned from the game into their championship campaign.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, White said, "The manager said we should be proud of ourselves and that we had done well.

"We`ll just keep going now and take what we`ve learned into our league performances.

"You look around the Emirates and the players and that can only give you motivation to get out of this league and get promoted. We have to aspire to these things.

"Players like Henry, Arshavin, Walcott… there all international players and top footballers and that`s what we all aspire to."


The whites will be hoping to build on their late win over Burnley last time out in the championship having lost their previous three games and dropped out of the play off places.

Leeds are in the capital again this weekend when they travel to Crystal Palace and are currently one point outside the play-offs in eighth place.

They will want to right the wrongs of last season when losing to the Eagles on Easter Monday at Selhurst Park 1-0. The defeat saw Leeds drop three points behind Nottingham Forest in sixth place and despite winning their last two games of the season, Leeds could only finish seventh.

The win for Palace last season helped them avoid relegation and they are enjoying a much more successful season this term under former Leeds loan player Dougie Freedman.

Palace are in Carling Cup semi-final action this week and they are in eleventh place, just two points behind Leeds.

Leeds will be hoping to complete the double this season having won at Elland Road 3-2 in September thanks to two goals from Ross McCormack and one from Luciano Becchio.
