Leeds United legend Brendan Ormsby answers your questions.

Brendan. We have beaten Crystal Palace and Leicester, two of the supposed better sides in this league. It just shows there’s nothing to be frightened of in this league.

THAT’S what I have been saying all along since we came back to this division, as everyone who reads this column probably knows.

I took a tour of about 20 people around before Tuesday’s game and they asked what I thought would happen in the game and I said, as I always do, ‘we are at home, so we should win.’

Especially after beating Palace, who were top, on Saturday, we had nothing to fear or be scared of against Leicester. Obviously, they are a good team, but not a great one.

Leicester worked hard, but hit a lot of high balls and we were fairly comfortable, even when they brought on big Marko Futacs in the second half.

I thought we dealt with it well. Paddy Kenny didn’t really have a lot to do in the 90 minutes, did he? Tom Lees and Alan Tate played well at the back and Tate looks solid and steady.

I think as it stands, Neil will stick with those two and if I was one of them, I would be disappointed if I was left out as they have done so well against two teams in the top three or four of the Championship.

I have got to be honest, Jason Pearce has not overly impressed me yet.

He has not been particularly dominant, for me.

I thought Jerome Thomas looked lively. Went he came off, he looked a bit brassed-off, but he went straight to the physio and I saw the physio talking to Warnock before taking him off, so he must have had a slight knock.

He looks like he has good feet and he is nippy. Once he has played a few more games and settled in, he will be a good asset.

Michael Brown also did well when he came on and stiffened it up in the middle.

He’s been around a long time and he puts his foot in and lets people know he is there and lets his team-mates know.

We certainly have a lot of grafters in midfield who put a shift in. Maybe we could just do with someone to spray the ball around the park in January.

We defended our lead after getting a penalty after two or three minutes very well and the team looked galvanised and really organised.
