New, comment

Through it all together gathers the thoughts of both managers ahead of tomorrow's game at Elland Road.

After the disappointing away visit to Pride Park last week, The Whites will be looking to pick up maximum points at home to Ipswich this weekend.

Here's what both managers had to say:

Neil Warnock:

"They have pace and power and are on a great run. They're in the top couple in the form table at the moment so it's just our luck we're playing them at this time, but we haven't done so bad either, other than the first half at Derby.

"We're looking to get back into some sort of shape like we have done. We've played three of the best teams, who are flying, and they were all tough games.

"We have to go into this run of games now in good spirits. We also seem to perform better when we're playing an in-form side.

"We have to sustain our place in the league and try and get up there, and we have two big league games either side of the Chelsea game.

"We'll look forward to Chelsea when it comes around after Saturday. I sent Phil Parkinson (Bradford manager) a text after they beat Arsenal this week saying 'look forward to seeing you in the semi-final- it was tongue in cheek of course, but I was delighted for them."

Mick McCarthy:

“Leeds beat Palace, Leicester and Huddersfield before losing to Derby last week and they are good results against some of the top clubs in this division,”

“They are a big club and it’s always a difficult place to go, Elland Road, but we will go there in optimistic mood.”
