The Whites fell to a third defeat on the trot in the league on Wednesday as they were hammered 3-0 by Chelsea at Elland Road, which has seen them remain in the drop zone with just two games remaining in the season.


Leeds also saw Daniel James pick up a red card against the Blues, which means that they have lost a senior player for the rest of the season in each of their last three games with Stuart Dallas sidelined owing to injury and Luke Ayling serving a suspension.



Whites skipper Cooper has admitted that there is a lot going wring for Leeds at present and they are due for their luck to turn, which he hopes will happen in their last two games of the season.


However, Cooper has sent a rallying cry to his team-mates to not feel sorry for themselves and try to get points in the next two games in whatever way they can.



Asked whether he thinks everything that could go wrong for Leeds is going wrong, Cooper told LUTV: “No, it is.


“We are due a bit of luck, maybe a decision somewhere along the line.



“Hopefully, they cough up in the next couple of games.


“But from my point of view, my message to the lads is we cannot sit and feel sorry for ourselves.


“We are in a fight now; we know that and we have got to go and be positive and approach the game and get a result in any way possible.


“Does not have to be pretty, does not have to be nice, we have to go and do it the Leeds way and hopefully we can do that at the weekend and make a fist of it.”


Leeds will host Brighton at Elland Road on Sunday which will be followed by a trip to Brentford in the final game of the season.
