Drury - We just need to keep ourselves in the race

Drury - We just need to keep ourselves in the race

Leeds United defender Adam Drury feels the win at Peterborough United gives them a good start to the season in what he calls an unpredictable division.

Drury made his first appearance for Leeds since his summer move from Norwich City and the experienced left back felt it was a good all-round team performance. Speaking on LUTV, Drury said, "Wherever you win it is enjoyable. We got the right result. We came here looking to win and it gives us a decent start to the season.

"I thought it was a good all-round team performance with everyone putting in a good shift. I thought we performed well, we got the goals and as the away side you are always going to be hanging on a bit at the end but we did well.

"I think at the end we got the right result and everyone is happy."


Drury spent eleven years with Norwich, helping the side to promotion to the Premier League on two occasions and he feels all Leeds can do is look after themselves in a league that is always wide open. "It is a long whole season. If we can carry on picking up points, especially on the road, it will make a massive difference.

"I think the league will be very close. You only have to look at the results week in week out; you cannot really predict this league. We just have to keep ourselves in the race,"
added Drury.

Leeds are in sixth place in the championship after picking up six points from their opening three games of the season with two wins and a defeat.

Leeds only defeat came in midweek at Blackpool 2-1 and the side that just missed out on promotion to the Premier League last season, after losing the play off final to West Ham, have made a strong start to the season under Ian Holloway.

Blackpool are the only side remaining with a 100% start in the championship after three games. They kept up their perfect start to the season by putting six past Ipswich Town on Saturday in a 6-0 win at Bloomfield Road.

Sheffield Wednesday and Blackburn have both won two and drawn one of their opening three championship games, whilst Charlton Athletic and Nottingham Forest are the only other clubs who remain unbeaten after winning one and drawing two of their opening three games.

Leeds are one of four clubs to have picked up six points from their opening three games.

Some of the pre-season favourites, Bolton, Cardiff, Birmingham City and Leicester City are all currently in the bottom half at this early stage of the season.

New Birmingham City manager Lee Clark must already be feeling the pressure after the midlands club have picked up just one point from their opening three games.

Crystal Palace and Peterborough United are the only sides yet to get of the mark having lost their opening three games.

Leeds next championship game is against another side relegated from the Premier League last season. Having already beaten Wolves in the only other home game this season, Blackburn Rovers visit Elland Road next Saturday.
