Kalvin Phillips: We know they are a good team

Midfielder on Blackburn Rovers.

Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips spoke to the media ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Blackburn Rovers.

The Whites head across the Pennines to Ewood Park, knowing a win would keep the side at the top o the table.

Phillips spoke about opponents Blackburn and what he is expecting between now and the end of the campaign as Leeds look to get back to the Premier League

“We know they are a good team,” said Phillips.

“They’ve been without Bradley Dack, who is injured and brings a lot to their game.

“I’ve played against him in the last two years and I think he’s a great player, he brings a lot to Tony Mowbray’s side and scores a lot of goals, which is important as a midfielder.

“I think he’s a big miss for Blackburn and hopefully he can get back playing again soon.

“Despite this, they still have great players and they’re not going to let us come to their place and play the nice football that we play, they’ll try and disrupt us and frustrate us like all of the other teams have.

“I think it will be a good game and if we play like we have been doing in the last couple of games, I am pretty sure we will get the three points.

“Any team that we come up against really won’t want us to win and it’s not just Blackburn, it’s every team.

“We’re at the top of the league, so when we come to them, it’s going to be their biggest game of the season.

“I think it’s going to be like that in every game until the end of the season, obviously we’ve been working hard all season and we know what to expect and we’re looking forward to try and get the three points.”
