Barry Douglas spoke after the loss to Nottingham Forest.
Douglas, on the subject of two defeats in a row after only losing three times in the first half of the season, said:
But if you look at the bigger picture, it’s two defeats in nine games and if you would have said that at the start of the nine games, of course you would have taken that. There’s a lot of positives there.
Back to back defeats is not what we want but this division is relentless and anyone can beat anyone on their day so it’s up to us to take a step back now.
It’s a wake up call going into the new year, we know what’s expected so now it’s about digging deep, weathering the situation and coming out on top.
With the FA Cup against Queens Park Rangers coming up on Sunday , there is a chance for some first team players to get a rest before the next match against Derby County. Leeds have a chance to be special this year, so hopefully the ship gets pointed in the right direction after a small blip.
