Leeds boss Daniel Farke confident in team’s defensive prowess

Leeds United manager Daniel Farke has expressed confidence in his team’s defensive record as they prepare to face Preston in the Championship. Farke has urged his players to prepare for the worst, but assures fans that there is no cause for concern. Leeds have managed to keep a clean sheet in their last three matches and are aiming for a fourth against Preston. If achieved, it would be the second time this season that Leeds have achieved this feat, a stark improvement from their defensive performance in the previous campaign.

The team’s strong defensive display has also been instrumental in their three consecutive 3-0 victories. Another win on Sunday would bolster their chances of earning promotion to the Premier League. Leeds have managed to alleviate concerns after suffering defeats to Preston and West Brom over the festive period.

Farke emphasized the team’s defensive mindset and mentality as the key to their improved performance. He stated that the focus in training has been on reducing the number of chances opponents have and being more resolute in defending set-pieces. Farke praised his players’ commitment to defending their own goal and highlighted the importance of a strong defensive foundation in football.

Despite Leeds’ impressive defensive record, Farke remains cautious about the team’s chances of promotion. He believes that past success is not a guarantee of future success and that unity, spirit, and togetherness are equally important in achieving their goals. Farke acknowledged Preston as a brave side and warned his team to be fully focused from the start.

Leeds have been unbeaten at home this season and are eager to avenge their previous defeat to Preston. Farke stressed the importance of putting in a strong performance and giving their all in every match.
