Chris Wilder is confident his side will handle the occasion at Elland Road on Friday evening.

And although he is conscience of the threats posed by the opposition, the Blades manager insists his side will continue to be positive.

He commented: "We're all striving for that consistency every week, but Leeds winning like they did at Bristol City was a fantastic result.

"Bristol City are going well at the moment and showed that by beating Crystal Palace 4-1 in the cup in midweek, so we have to recognise they will bring their best game to the table, their supporters will demand that.

"It will be a special one under the lights in front of 35,000 and it doesn't come any bigger than this, but our approach won't change and the players have been fearless to date."

Wilder continued: "We're going for wins, we play on the front foot and although we appreciate we'll get pushed back away from home we also know we'll have some of the game too.

"It should be a cracking game, we in the Championship for a reason and it's a game we should look forward to and embrace in the search of another win.

"Leeds are gearing up to get out of the division and are going full tilt for promotion. That shows in terms of recruitment and money spent and they've had a good start to the season."
