Leeds United captain Lee Peltier says the wins over Crystal Palace and Leicester City in the past week have given them a big boost ahead of the game at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
Leeds had gone seven games without a win before beating league leaders Crystal Palace last weekend and third placed Leicester City in midweek.
Speaking on the official websiteofficial website, Peltier said, “The results have given us a big boost. They were two in-form teams and knowing you can beat them gives you a boost.
“Everyone is delighted with the results and is looking forward to Saturday now.”
Leeds boss Neil Warnock was also able to name an unchanged side for both games for only the second time this season and Peltier says that has also helped the side. “It helps to have a bit of stability as well in the team which we haven`t been able to do due to injuries and suspensions, but you can see from the last two games that there is an understanding and that comes from playing with each other,” continued Peltier.
Peltier joined Leeds in the summer, choosing a move to Elland Road ahead of a return to Huddersfield Town where he spent two years.
The versatile defender made over 100 appearances for Huddersfield before joining Leicester City in the summer of 2011.
After making 47 appearances for Leicester, Leeds made a move to sign him at the start of August.
Peltier was installed as club captain on the eve of the new season and he showed his passion for the club in just the second game of the season at Blackpool, when he played on despite dislocating a shoulder.
He has made 21 appearances for Leeds this season and he has played in all four positions across the back four.
