Brian McDermott on change in fortunes...
United manager Brian McDermott insists his players deserve credit for winning three from the last four matches.
United have beaten three sides who are fighting for their Championship survival in recent weeks, including Blackpool, Barnsley and Birmingham. The one defeat United suffered was on Easter Monday against Nottingham Forest.
Saturday’s win at Birmingham was United’s eighth away win this season, in all competitions, and the manager says they deserve credit for the recent results.
“I am proud of the boys,” said the boss. “They have got three wins out of the last four and they deserve the credit.
“You deserve credit when you go anywhere in the Championship and get a result.
“We haven’t won at Barnsley since 1997 and we haven’t won at Birmingham in the league since 1982. We haven’t won at Birmingham in a long time so you can take plenty from that.
“We don’t give ourselves credit enough at Leeds United. I will give the boys all the credit in the world, they deserve it.”
