Stuart Dallas confident Leeds will rebound from Fulham defeat

Leeds United dropped points for the second game in succession over the weekend, falling 2-1 at Fulham as Josh Onomah delivered a 69th-minute winner to down Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

Despite the setbacks, Leeds still hold their automatic promotion place by eight points and Stuart Dallas is confident Leeds will press on.

“The good thing about it is that we have got another game in three or four days’ time, another massive game at home to Preston,” said Dallas.

“We have come off the back of seven straight wins so I wouldn’t look at it as a dip in form. We are of course pleased with our current position.

“If you had told us at the start of the season that half-way through the campaign we would be nine (eight) points ahead of the chasing pack, we would have bitten your hand off.”

Leeds will finish 2019 with games against Preston and Birmingham City.
