Leeds United boss Simon Grayson is hoping that the two games with Arsenal have wetted the appetites of his players to do it on a regular basis with a return to the Premier League.
Leeds bowed out of the FA Cup in the replay at Elland Road after Arsenal made no mistake with a classy performance in a 3-1 win.
Grayson is now hoping that his players can build on the two games with Arsenal and continue with their promotion push out of the Championship and back into the Premier League.
Speaking on Sky Sports News, Grayson said, ‘Hopefully the ambition of the players can be fulfilled here – we are not a selling club and don’t need to sell anybody.’
‘This has whetted the appetite for players to face these sorts of teams on a weekly basis and I believe we have come out of the two games with a lot of credit.’
Leeds get back to league action on Saturday when they travel to face Portsmouth at Fratton Park.
The two sides only met just over three weeks ago at Leeds when they shared six goals in a 3-3 draw.
