Leeds United will try to win their remaining matches and end the season on a high, manager Brian McDermott has insisted.

As the former Reading boss completes his first year anniversary at the club, questions still linger over whether he can lead the team's battle for survival this season, and towards a future under Massimo Cellino.

The Peacocks are currently placed sixteenth in the Championship, eight point clear of relegation battlers Millwall.

Five back-to-back losses have now meant that the remaining matches are crucial, with the match against Blackpool being counted as a "final".


“You can only guess as to what points will be safe”, McDermott told his club's official site, then stating his belief that only one more win is needed.

“All I know is that we have to win, and one win will do it.

“It’s not just about that, though, it's about playing as well as we can and getting towards the summer.

“You can't look back, we have to learn from the games and look forward. Words do seem to be hollow at the moment. We all need to step up.

“We’re looking for strong characters. Everyone has to stand up. We have five games to go and we have to finish as strong as possible”, the 53-year-old added.
