LUFC Tonge - We are not a million miles away

LUFC Tonge - We are not a million miles away

On loan Leeds United midfielder Michael Tonge believes the side are not a million miles away from turning their bad run of form around.

Leeds have now failed to win any of their last six games in the championship, picking up just three points from a possible eighteen.

Leeds have slipped from the play-off places to fifteenth in the championship and they are now seven points away from both the play-off and relegation places in a division that is once again wide open.

The run of bad results was compounded on Saturday when they were beaten 6-1 at home to Watford in a game they finished with nine men but Tonge says it wouldn`t take much to turn the form around.

Speaking on the Leeds official website, Tonge said, "We have slid down a few places but I don`t think we are a million miles away."

The form is in contrast to that towards the end of September, beginning of October, when they won four out of five games, including knocking Premier League side Everton out of the Capital One League Cup.

The run was halted when the Premier League and Championship had a weekend off due to the World Cup qualifiers and Tonge is looking for a return to this form. "I think if we can win two or three on the bounce, like we did before the international break, we`ll be right back up there. It`s just getting that win, once you get flowing you can`t wait for the next game to come," added Tonge.

The midfielder who is on loan from Stoke City and he scored his fourth goal for the club from the penalty spot in the defeat to Watford on Saturday.

He has been an almost ever-present since signing in September and he has continued to play on despite struggling with a shoulder injury.

Tonge is due to go back to Stoke after the home game with Ipswich Town on December 15th.
