Charlie Taylor has shared his desires to turn Elland Road into a fortess for Leeds.

The famous Yorkshire club have managed to sell out the 39,460 capacity stadium for the first time in six years with Newcastle set to visit in over two weeks time.

Newcastle away supporters have also helped by selling out their 2,764 ticket allocation for the Yorkshire trip, as the Championship giants meet for the first time in 12 years.

Now last season’s player of the year Taylor has expressed his wants for the club to make the famous old ground a fortress with the club enjoying a successful spell on the pitch.

“There is a lot more stability around the club now and I think this is the highest we have been in the league since I made my debut,” said Taylor to the official club website.

“There is a lot of positivity around the place at the minute and hopefully we can use that to really push towards the play-offs.

“Elland Road is bouncing at the moment, the ticket sales for Newcastle United are great and if we can get up towards the top of the table and get it sold out every week, it will be fantastic.

“We want to get the stadium rocking, make it a fortress and make it really difficult for when teams come here.”

Leeds are currently sat in ninth place in the Championship table and are one point behind Bristol City in the play offs.

They could move as high as fifth place with a win over Norwich with results elsewhere also going their way.

Leeds haven’t finished in the top six of England’s second tier since 2006 and they will be keen to finish in a high spot following a 12-year absence from the Premier League.
