After two draws to Reading and Brentford, Uwe Rosler and his squad are still looking for their first win of the season. Their next opportunity to do so is against Bristol on Wednesday.

Uwe Rosler knows the type of team he's up against. Bristol City just bid £8m for Brentford striker Andre Gray.

Rosler told Phil Hay "that's what we're up against" in speaking of the bid.

Rosler also told the YEP he was "relaxed" with his clubs position, and that United isn't extremely active in the transfer market.

United has added 7 players to the team before the start of the season, including Chris Wood, Stuart Dallas, and Tom Adeyemi. Billy Sharp and Steve Morison have left Elland Road in the process.

Rosler continued to talk about how careful he plans to be during the transfer window.

"A club like Leeds United should always look to improve the squad. When you see now with (Lewis) Cook having a three-match ban and two players coming back from surgery (Luke Murphy and Tommaso Bianchi) we're already thin in some areas.

"At the moment, and I hope this stays the same, we don't have many injuries in other departments. We have to make sure we have enough quality and depth but we don't need to dive in just to drive on a safety policy here. That's not what we want.

"We also have the loan window which we can tap into. At the moment it's going fine but we're always on the look-out to improve our squad.

"There are still two weeks until the transfer window closes so I'd be pretty relaxed about the situation. Yes, we have some key players they can't get injured but that's football. We have to see how the situation develops."

He went on to say: "With the financial situation at this club just now, we cannot afford to make any mistakes - simple as that. We have to be cautious but we also have to see the size of the squad, especially in certain areas of the field."

It'll be interesting to see what Rosler does in the remaining time he has in the transfer window.
