LUFC Murphy - Next month is crucial for Leeds

LUFC Murphy - Next month is crucial for Leeds

Leeds United midfielder Luke Murphy says the next month is crucial to their hopes of finishing in a play-off place.

Leeds still have six games to play this month starting with their game against Bolton Wanderers at Elland Road this afternoon. It is the start of a busy week, which sees play-off rivals Reading visit Leeds on Tuesday before a trip to automatic promotion chasing Burnley next weekend.

The club have shown their intent in the past few weeks with the signings of Jack Butland and Connor Wickham from the Premier League and the Leeds boss Brian McDermott is still looking to add to his squad before the loan transfer window closes towards the end of this month.

Leeds return to Elland Road for the first time in five weeks this afternoon after playing four games in a row on their travels. Leeds have picked up five points from a possible twelve on their travels and with a run of home games coming up over the next month, Leeds must be looking for a good haul of points if they are to close the eight-point gap between them and the final play-off place.

Speaking on the official website , Murphy said, "I think that this next month is crucial for us if we want to anything this season and try and get promoted. The club have shown that is what we are trying to do.

"We have brought in some really good international players. The manager has made a statement that he is not happy to settle for mid-table. He wants us to push on and try and get promoted."


Murphy is enjoying a good first season at Elland Road after becoming the first seven-figure fee signing by the club in over eight years when he joined from Crewe Alexandra.

After making a dream debut for Leeds when he scored an injury time winner against Brighton and Hove Albion in the first game of the season, he has continue to be a regular for Brian McDermott and he has made 29-appearances this season.
