Neil Warnock intends to turn Elland Road into a fortress again next season after a horrendous season on home soil.
Warnock saw his new Leeds side win their first home game in six since he took over at Elland Road towards the end of February and he says it has been much too soft this season.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "Elland Road is the type of stadium where you must have energy and next season it must become a fortress because we have been too soft this year and it cannot be allowed to continue."
Leeds must avoid defeat to Leicester City next weekend in their final game of the season at Elland Road to set an unwanted record.
No Leeds side in history as ever lost more than ten home games in a season and a defeat to Leicester would be their eleventh of the season.
Leeds have picked up just thirty points on home soil this season with just relegated Doncaster Rovers as well as Bristol City, Nottingham Forest and Millwall having collected less points.
The whites have the worst defensive record in the championship at home having already conceded 39 goals this season.
Leeds had lost just one game on home soil between October 2010 and October 2011and that was when they were reduced to nine men against Middlesbrough in a 1-0 defeat in their first home game of the season.
Since beating Portsmouth at the beginning of October, Leeds have won just five of their seventeen games at Elland Road and they have trailed in four of those five games.
Two of the five wins were thanks to winners deep into stoppage time against Burnley and Doncaster Rovers and the wins over both Burnley and Ipswich were after the visitors had been reduced to ten men whilst leading the game.
