Leeds United head coach Paul Heckingbottom says he is looking to build a winning mentality towards the end of this season as he looks to build for next season.
Heckingbottom was denied a second win in charge of Leeds in his seventh game in charge at Reading on Saturday by an own goal as Leeds continued to struggle in 2018.
Whilst the play-offs are still mathematically possible with nine games remaining, Heckingbottom admits they are now out of his mind as his mind-set is set on next season.
‘The play-offs are out of my mind but they are attainable. My mind is on getting the players winning, working with them and pushing them,” Heckingbottom told the BBC Website.
‘I want to begin to build a winning mentality because whatever happens this season, if we’re not in the play-offs, we want to be in them next season, so all the work starts now.”
Leeds have two home games coming up against Sheffield Wednesday and Bolton Wanderers, two teams struggling in the Championship and Heckingbottom will be hoping for a good return of points from these two games to build the confidence.
