Leeds United boss Thomas Christiansen has admitted he is not looking beyond the next few matches despite his side leading the Championship.
The Whites are one of three sides on 20 points at the summit of the table, with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Cardiff joining them, although the Yorkshire side lead on goal difference.
Leeds could put three points between themselves and the Bluebirds on Tuesday night, as they travel down to the Welsh capital to take on Neil Warnock’s men.
However despite his side’s bright start to the season, Christiansen surprisingly insists he will not be looking ahead of the club’s imminent fixtures, stating that only time will prove whether they can secure their ambitions.
He told Sky Sports: “I don’t look further than one or two games.
“We all have our dreams to fulfil and we all work on trying to achieve that.
“If it’s possible or not, only time will tell.”
The Danish manager insists that Tuesday’s clash will be a difficult one, and will be made more so by Warnock’s desire to get a result against his former side.
The Cardiff boss was at the helm of the Elland Road side for just over a year before leaving in April 2013, and as such Christiansen knows that a win is worth more than just three points to the 68-year-old.
“It’s a game against his ex-team. He’ll want to push his players to give more than they have to take an important three points,” he told Sky Sports.
“He’s going to do everything possible to motivate the players for this game.”
Leeds come into the match off the back of a 3-2 victory at home to Ipswich Town, while Cardiff’s last outing saw them see off recently relegated side Sunderland 2-1 at the Stadium of Light.
