Brian McDermott: 'Leeds United players are behind me'

Leeds United boss Brian McDermott insists that the club's players are behind him following their recent poor form.

Leeds United manager Brian McDermott has insisted that he has the full backing of his players after the club's recent run of poor form.

The Whites have lost five of their last six matches after Saturday's home defeat to Doncaster Rovers.

McDermott told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "I am confident they are still with me.

"It's a common theme that people say when you have had a bad run of results that the manager has lost the dressing room. I don't even know what that means. Get a result, the manager has got the dressing-room again. Get another result, he's really got the dressing room again. That's how it works.

"It's just a cliché. It doesn't mean anything to me. I have got good people in the dressing room and they are as disappointed as me. But I am determined and fighting and they (players) will be the same."

Leeds face Charlton Athletic at Elland Road this evening.
