Leeds midfielder Alfonso Pedraza has insisted his side are “hungry for football” ahead of their match against Reading on Saturday.
The Whites travel to promotion rivals Reading for a Championship clash and will be looking to strengthen their grip in the play-off places.
Garry Monk’s side are fourth in the league table and are unbeaten in their last seven matches.
Meanwhile, Reading are fifth in the standings and are another team who look set to be involved in the play-off set-up at the end of the season.
Pedraza has revealed to fans that his side are desperate to focus on their league campaign after a break for internationals.

Leeds picked up a morale boosting 2-0 win over Brighton in their last game before the international break and are looking in great form.
The Yorkshire club will be looking to complete the double over Reading after earning a 2-0 victory in the previous meeting this season at Elland Road.
Pedraza will hope to make a positive impact for the Whites and he has managed to settle recently following his January arrival on loan.
The 20-year-old has started the last three consecutive games for Monk and will be in contention to feature against Reading.
The tricky winger has scored just one goal so far in his opening six appearances and that came in a 3-1 victory away to Birmingham.
