Leeds United boss Steve Evans has stressed that only promotion to the Premier League would be a statement from the club, and not back-to-back wins in the Championship.

After a humiliating 4-0 loss at Brighton last week, Leeds have picked up steam with wins over Bolton and Cardiff, which have pushed the club up to 15th in the Championship table on 44 points.

The two victories in a row have put Leeds back into the contention for a top ten finish, but the Scot is refusing to read too much into the results as he feels Premier League promotion still remains the ultimate aim.

He insisted that he and his players will continue to work hard on the pitch and let others judge the performances of Leeds United.

When asked whether the two wins were a statement from Leeds United, Evans said on LUTV: “No.


“You make a statement by taking Leeds United back to the Premier League.

“Otherwise, you just work hard and let others continue to judge you because that’s what happens at Leeds.

“As head coach I continue to concentrate on the grass and getting a team out against a good Blackburn side.”

Leeds are just five points off tenth placed Preston, and feel a good run of form towards the end of the season could help them to finish in the top half of the table.
