Leeds United first team coach Carlos Corberan insists that the Whites cannot take things for granted and must continue their approach to take things game by game, after finishing the first half of the season at the top of the Championship table.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have collected 48 points from 23 games and are a point ahead of Norwich City, who are in second, but more importantly, the Whites have opened up a six-point on third-placed West Brom.

Leeds have been deemed by many as the most entertaining side in the Championship this season and have managed to find the consistency to challenge for promotion.

Corberan has admitted that creating a bigger gap on the teams behind them is positive, but feels Leeds still have a lot of work to do and should take it one game at a time.

“I think we will continue with the mentality of going game by game”, Corberan told LUTV after the Whites’ 3-2 win against Aston Villa on Sunday.

“Of course, every time we are creating more distance [between the rest of the teams] this is something positive.

“But we are only at the half way stage of the season and have another half to fight and to show again our identity, and try to show again that we are growing a lot as a team and we can win any game." 

Leeds host Blackburn Rovers at home in their next game on Boxing Day and will hope to begin the second half of the season on a winning note.
