United boss geared up for MK Dons clash...
Leeds United manager Simon Grayson says he is reading nothing into the reports that Saturday's visitors MK Dons are going through a turbulent period.
MK manager Paul Ince has announced his intention to step down at the end of the season, and the Dons will head north with a squad ravaged by injuries.
They are sat in mid-table, but will be looking to make an impact at Elland Road on Saturday.
"It can go two ways with games like this," said the boss.
"They have nothing to play for in terms of promotion or relegation, and they will probably look to express themselves, enjoy the atmosphere and try and get a result.
"If you look at MK, Paul has said he is leaving and they have one or two injuries and suspensions, but we can't rely on what's happening with others.
"We've got to get a result against them and put in a performance.
"If they want to roll over a die great - they won't - and if they want to stand and fight we have to match them at that.
"It's down to us to achieve the target of getting nine points out of nine regardless of who we are playing."
United could be set for another crowd of in the region of 27,000 on what is yet another important Saturday in the League One promotion race.
"Our fans can be that extra man," added the boss.
"The opposition might find it intimidating as they did earlier in the season.
"I would expect a great atmosphere like it was for the Southend game, and I would prefer to be playing at Elland Road."
The boss has a near full strength squad to select from with only Paddy Kisnorbo and Jason Crowe certain absentees.
