LUFC McDermott looking to bounce back
Leeds United boss Brian McDermott says he is looking to bounce back as he prepares his team for two home games in the space of four days.
Leeds saw their three-match winning run end at Blackburn on Saturday with a 1-0 defeat and McDermott is already focusing on getting another run going.
"The most important thing now is the next game," McDermott told Radio Leeds.
"I have told the players, when we win a game we are not the best in the world and when we lose a game we are not the worst. We don`t want over reactions either way, that won`t happen in our dressing room.
"We now face Wigan and will try to bounce back. We have now have back-to-back home games and I am looking forward to it."
Leeds face Wigan at Elland Road on Wednesday night before Watford visit on the Saturday. Both are struggling to find their form at the moment. Wigan lost today against Derby County at home and they have now lost two games in a row in the championship. Watford looked to have put the disappointment of missing out on promotion last season on two occasions. Leeds beat them on the final day of the season to cost them automatic promotion before they went on to lose to Crystal Palace at Wembley in the play-off final. Watford started the season well but they have now picked up just two points from their last six games and they were beaten 3-0 at home by bottom of the table Yeovil Town on Saturday.
The defeat for Leeds on Saturday saw them drop to eighth in the championship and they will be desperate to get back on track in the next week.
