Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says the side will travel to Blackburn Rovers today in good spirits after a morale-boosting win over Blackpool in midweek.
Leeds brought to an end a run of three championship games without a win, with a professional 2-0 home win over Blackpool in midweek.
Blackburn are next up for Leeds today, with both clubs still harbouring play-offs hopes and Warnock says the team now just need a bit of lady luck on their travels.
Speaking on the Leeds United official website, Warnock said, 'We will go into it in good spirits, probably better than we have for a number of games away from home.
'With that kind of atmosphere, we seem to do better in those kind of games so I hope we can do on Saturday.
'I don't worry about who we are playing, it's a matter of trying to take our opportunities and having a bit of luck on the day.'
It is Leeds form away from Elland Road, which is forcing them to play catch up in the division. Leeds have won just three games away from home this season and they have picked up just one point from their last seven away games.
Leeds face three tricky away trips out of their next four games, with trips to promotion chasing Blackburn, Leicester City and Crystal Palace.
Warnock admits the next four games are difficult and he is looking to surprise a few people. 'Without the doubt the next four games are probably the toughest of the season. We've got to try and get as many points as possible.
'When you go to Blackburn, Millwall at home and then Leicester and Palace away I don't think they are going to get much tougher than that.
'We've just got to stick together like we did against Blackpool and try and surprise people.
'We have got a good team spirit at the minute and we've got to try and use that against Blackburn,' added Warnock.
Leeds went into a similar run of fixtures prior to Christmas and Leeds surprised a few people then when they won five games out of six.
With just fourteen games remaining, Leeds are six points outside the play-off places and they must produce a similar run if they are to have any chance of reaching the end of season play-offs.
