Leeds United striker Ross McCormack says the side are definitely good enough to compete in the top six.
Leeds go into Saturday`s game with Barnsley at Elland Road on the back of back to back away wins.
The wins at Leicester and Burnley have lifter Leeds into fifth place in the championship.
Leeds under performed in their last game at Burnley, but still came away with the three points thanks to two late goals from Robert Snodgrass and McCormack puts that down to the ability in the side.
Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post , McCormack said, “We showed spirit at Burnley and it`s okay having spirit but you`ve got to have ability to go with it. The boys have shown that we`re definitely good enough to compete in the top six in this league.”
McCormack will be hoping to get back amongst the goals on Saturday.
The Scottish international scored ten times in his first thirteen games of the season but he has now gone eight games without a goal.
McCormack is happy enough with his form but he feels there is more to come. “I`m happy with my form but I still feel like I`ve got a lot more to come.
“I`m judged on the goals I score but I pride myself on my link-up play and my awareness as well. If I`m being honest, I don`t think that`s been up to scratch this season so to say I`m completely happy would be wrong. I`ve been working really hard to get that going and bring the best out of me,” he continued.
Leeds welcome Barnsley to Elland Road on Saturday and they will be hoping to get their home form back on track after picking up just two points from their last three home games.
They will also be keen to put the memory of their last home game behind them. Blackpool left Elland Road with all three points with a 5-0 victory, their heaviest home defeat in just over 30 years.
