Leeds boss was joined at his weekly press conference today by captain Ross McCormack, and the pair didn't pull any punches. McDermott insisted he was the right man for the job, and, in time, will get Leeds promoted. He said the club needs to change, and stop sackig managers every year-stability is needed. He is taking the positives out of the last half hour of Tuesdays game with Reading, and wants the team to come out fighting.
McCormack, for his part , says that Leeds is probably the biggest club he'll play for and finds it easy, with big crowds home and away-but whether other players are finding it hard, he's not sure.. He also said there's no chance of the playoffs unless things change and they start winning, and the players have out McDermott under pressure with their performances.
Both the manager and the captain were not taking a backwards step-let's hope that resilience transfers to the players on Saturday at Burnley..
