Grayson- Players should take confidence in defeat
Leeds United boss Simon Grayson believes the players should take plenty of confidence out of the game with Birmingham City despite losing 4-1 at Elland Road.
Grayson felt the side played as well as they have done all season at Elland Road for the first 60 minutes and they must keep believing that they can achieve something this season.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, "The players have got to take a lot of confidence out of this game. It might sound daft on the back of a 4-1 defeat but for 60 minutes we played as well as we have done all season at home.
"We have got to keep working hard on the training pitch, believe that we can achieve something and hopefully we can do it."
The defeat means Leeds have dropped down to tenth place in the championship but with the division being as tight as it is, a win would have seen them finish the evening in sixth place.
Leeds are still just three points outside the play offs and with eighteen games remaining are still in with a chance of the end of season play offs if they can string a run of results together.
Next up for Leeds is a trip to Bristol City on Saturday.
