Jon Newsome has conceded that Leeds United cannot afford to get carried away just yet but admitted that they are a brilliant football team to be part of at the moment.


Leeds hammered Swansea 4-0 at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday night to extend their winning run in the Championship to seven games.


Southampton’s shock defeat at Bristol City means that Leeds are now sitting second in the Championship table having played a game more than the Saints.




The Whites are now being seen as firm favourites to win automatic promotion to the Premier League alongside Championship leaders Leicester City.


However, Newsome stressed that a huge amount of the season is still left and Leeds must find a way to not get carried away by their recent run of form.



He insisted that the Leeds players need to stay level-headed as they continue to tick off the games but conceded it is hard not to feel excited about being part of the current team.


The former White said on BBC Radio Leeds: “14 games to go, 42 points to play for – there is a lot of football to be played.



“Let’s not get carried away because we can’t get carried away, you have got to be level-head and you have got to take the next game as it comes.


“They are coming thick and fast.


“They are staying back tonight, they are driving back to Cardiff, they are flying back to Leeds tomorrow, quick turnaround and flying to Plymouth on Friday.


“It’s relentless and you can’t rest on your laurels and you have got to keep your head straight.


“But what a football team to be playing in at the moment.”


Leeds will be on the road again this weekend when they take on Plymouth at Home Park on Saturday.
