Ross McCormack has called on Leeds United to nip their poor Elland Road form in the bud on Saturday as the club look for only their second home win of 2014.

The United captain said he was prepared for a combative clash with third-bottom Millwall but said a positive result was overdue this weekend after recent thrashings against Bolton Wanderers and Reading at Elland Road.

Leeds produced an improved performance at Burnley last Saturday but were beaten by a second-half goal from Scott Arfield, inset, and the club are 13 points adrift of the play-offs after six games without a win.

Their consistency at Elland Road has also deteriorated since the first half of the season, in which United lost just two of 11 home fixtures.

McCormack, right, who scored his 25th goal of the season at Burnley, said: “You know what you’re going to get from Millwall. They won’t give you anything for nothing.

“It’s up to us to produce a positive performance and a result. In the lead up to December we were excellent at home and we’ll be looking to get that back.”
