Leeds United full-back Barry Douglas has revealed that the Whites will look at their last nine games and take out the positives following their second defeat in two games on New Year's Day.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side lost 4-2 against Nottingham Forest and saw their lead at the top of the table cut to just two points as Norwich City picked up a late draw against Brentford.

Leeds played more than a half with ten men against Nottingham Forest as Kalvin Phillips was sent off in the 42nd minute.

The Whites had managed seven wins in a row in the Championship, but have now suffered back to back losses.

Douglas believes the recent run of results shows it is too early to draw any conclusions but insists that the team will look at the positives as they hope to bounce back in their next game.

“If you look at the last nine games, I think we’ve won seven out of nine”, Douglas said on LUTV.

“You know there are a lot of positives.

“Yes, we’ve [lost] two on the bounce and it’s a bit of a sticky situation, but if we want to be where we want to be come the end of the season, then we need to stand up and be counted in these situations.

“It’s still early days.

"Yes, it’s nice to be up there and be competing, but ultimately, it’s far too early to be drawing any conclusions.

“So, we’ll go back to the drawing board, work hard and get prepared for the next game.”

Leeds will next take on QPR in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday.
