LUFC Lonergan hoping win can kick start Leeds

LUFC Lonergan hoping win can kick start Leeds

Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan is hoping the win at Bristol City can kick start their season after a difficult week.

Leeds went into the game under caretaker manager Neil Redfearn after dismissing Simon Grayson following the 4-1 home defeat by Birmingham City last Tuesday.

Life under Redfearn started with a confidence boosting 3-0 away win at Bristol City and Lonergan is hoping it can be the result, which will set them up for the rest of the season.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Lonergan said, "It was a pleasing victory in difficult conditions. It can kick us on, we had a very similar performance at Doncaster, albeit they didn`t have a man sent off. But we were very professional and kept the ball.

"I think we`ve got some great games to go on and win now. The result can set us up for the rest of the season."

The win at Bristol moved Leeds to within a point of the play off places and they are now just seven points behind Southampton who currently occupy the second automatic promotion place.

Leeds entertain Brighton and Hove Albion, who are currently on level points with Leeds on Saturday.

The whites then face three games before the end of the month against teams who are currently in the bottom eight in the championship.

A trip to bottom of the table Coventry City is then followed by a home game with third bottom Doncaster Rovers.

Leeds finish the month with a trip to Portsmouth and they will have hoped to have picked up at least ten points from a possible twelve to set them up for a tough start to March.

They start the month with a home game with Southampton (2nd), before trips to Middlesbrough (6th) and Hull (7th) and they then entertain West Ham (1st) in a difficult sequence of fixtures.
