Leeds United goalkeeper Rob Green thinks his side can start looking up if they manage to beat Cardiff City in an away Championship game on Saturday and stressed they could go above QPR, the team that beat them 3-0 in their season opener.

The Whites, who appointed Garry Monk as their new head coach in the summer, have endured a tough start to their league campaign.

Leeds have managed to win just two of their opening seven Championship games in the present campaign, with their latest victory coming in the form of a 2-1 win against bottom club Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday.

A win at Cardiff would give Leeds, who are presently 18th in the standings with seven points, back-to-back league wins for the first time this season.

And Green is of the opinion that bagging the full three points against Cardiff City will give Leeds a fighting chance to push up the table.


“If we’re talking about setting the tone then as rough a start it was for us, if we win on Saturday then we could go above QPR”, the custodian told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“That kind of says something. The result down there would seem further behind us.

"All of a sudden you’ve got a fighting chance and you start looking up.”

Green, who joined Leeds from Queens Park Rangers on a free transfer in the summer, has thus far made eight appearances in all competitions for the Elland Road outfit, keeping one clean sheet.
