Leeds United captain Lee Peltier is looking for a late charge from the side as they look to continue their bid for a play-off place at Leicester City on Tuesday night.
Leeds made it seven points from a possible nine with their home win over Millwall at the weekend to remain six points off a play-off place and Peltier feels the side have been playing well recently and will be looking to make a late push for the play-off places with twelve games remaining.
Speaking on the Leeds United official website, Peltier said, "I'd rather be going into the Play-Off places coming in from the outside instead of being under pressure in there.
'Like I said every game is massive and we'll be looking for three points. You see it every year, a late charge from someone and hopefully that will be us this season.
'I think for the past five or six weeks we have been playing really well, sometimes the results haven't gone our way but it did on Saturday.'
Peltier returns to his former club on Tuesday night, with both sides having their eye on a playoff place, with Leicester currently in fifth place.
The defender spent one season with Leicester and he was an almost ever-present making 47 appearances for the club before signing for Leeds in the summer. Peltier will be hoping to complete a double over his former club having won 1-0 at Elland Road in November. 'We've already played them at Elland Road and took three points off them and we'll be looking to do that again on Tuesday night.
'We are just taking every game as it comes, we won Saturday so we'll enjoy that and we'll move on to Tuesday,' continued Peltier.
The 26-year-old was a surprise choice to many when he was named captain of Leeds on the eve of the new season. After starting the season in his more natural position of right back, he was switched to left back with the emergence of youngster Sam Byram.
Peltier struggled in his new role and he came in for criticism from sections of the Elland Road crowd. The defender showed his versatility once again though and he was moved into the centre of defence alongside Tom Lees for the clash at Birmingham City in the FA Cup in January.
The duo have played the last ten games together in the centre of the defence and they have formed a strong partnership, helping Leeds keep their third consecutive clean sheet in the weekend win over Millwall.
Peltier will be hoping they can keep the run going with the trip to Leicester.
