The Whites are yet to register a win in the current top flight campaign, having tasted defeat in two games while drawing the remaining two in their opening four outings.
However, both of Leeds’ defeats came against sides touted to be challenging for the title this season in Manchester United and Liverpool, and they were able to hold their own against an in-form Everton and Burnley.
Ex-Leeds star Dorigo has stressed Leeds really need to push to get results in their upcoming runs of top flight clashes as they are set to have a favourable run of fixtures.
Dorigo explained that Leeds’ real fight in the league is against teams that are outside the very top of the table and they need to start getting results, starting with a clash against Newcastle United on Friday at St. James’ Park.
“With the fixtures playing out the way they are, you have to look where our fight is”, Dorigo wrote in his Yorkshire Evening Post column.
“Of course, we want to be fighting at the top of the league but that’s not where we are at this moment.
“We’ve played two of the top four and lost to them, but not lost to the sides outside it.
“Now we’re coming into a stretch of fixtures that holds our fight.
“It is not a huge surprise that we are where we are, but we have to really push on now.
“Newcastle is a team that will hopefully be below us come the end of the season.
“We dealt with them quite well last season, let’s hope it’s the same on Friday night.”
Leeds will take on Newcastle on Friday which will be followed by clashes against West Ham United, Watford, Southampton, Wolves and Norwich City.
