Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips has delivered an insight into a team meeting held between the squad after Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Luton.
The Whites’ midfielder admitted that the squad was arguing among themselves during and after the game at Elland Road – something he described as not in their nature.
Leeds dominated the ball once again, but were unable to find the winner despite plenty of chances coming their way in the second half.
Phillips spoke about the reaction needed, and more importantly how the squad have diffused their issues after the clash.
“With Luton, it frustrated us a little bit, you saw that towards the end of the game, us players arguing and stuff like that,” he told Leeds Live.
“It’s not really in our nature to start arguing between each other.
“We had a talk yesterday and said no matter what happens, as long as we’re confident in ourselves and as a team we’ve got to keep on fighting to try and get results.”
That frustration is only natural, as Leeds easily deserved more than a point. But, we want to see that used as motivation to get all three points at Blackburn, rather than a source to start arguments.
It’s easy to remember the struggles of last season and missing out on the top-two. Especially when you look at how similar it was around this time.
Three teams were battling it out, and Leeds were only one point behind Sheffield United at this stage, but crumbled and threw it all away.
Leeds know if they win their next two games against Blackburn and Stoke, they are virtually there and if Brentford drop points, the celebrations could start on that Thursday.
