Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says the players should be applauded after beating bottom of the table Bristol City 1-0 at Elland Road.
Warnock has come in for some criticism recently after some poor performances and the Leeds boss says many fans are always looking for negatives rather than positives, claiming the glass is always half empty.
Speaking on LUTV, Warnock said, "It is two wins out of two. The glass is always half empty in Leeds. They showed a lot of character and they should be applauded.
"It was a difficult game because how could we win against Bristol City? The only way we could do it was to win by six and play like Real Madrid but that doesn`t happen in the championship.
"I think to get the win, with an excellent goal and to come on the back of the drubbing last week, we have had two great wins."
After another lacklustre first half performance, that once again saw Leeds struggle to trouble an opposition goalkeeper, Ross McCormack scored the only goal of the game halfway through the second half with a far post header.
The only goal of the game was enough to beat the team with the worst defensive record in the division and stopped them recording their first clean sheet of the season.
On a positive note for Leeds, it is now six straight wins at home for the first time in a season since 2008/09. It was also a third clean sheet in four at home for the first time since the 2009/10 season.
The win sees Leeds remain in eleventh place and five points off the play-off places.
With the FA Cup taking centre stage next weekend when Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur come to Elland Road, Leeds are next in championship action the following weekend when table toppers Cardiff City come to Elland Road.
In the current run of six straight home wins, Leeds have beaten three sides who started the day in the top three in the championship.
Leeds started the run of six straight wins with a 2-1 home win over top of the table Crystal Palace. Leeds have also enjoyed wins against Leicester City and Middlesbrough, who both started the day in third place.
