JACK Harrison says Leeds United are approaching Saturday's Yorkshire derby against Sheffield United with confidence high after recent results.

Leeds signed off for the March international break with a 2-1 victory at an improving Fulham side which marked United's first win in London for nearly four and a half years.

The triumph at Craven Cottage came on the back of a goalless draw at home to high-flying Chelsea and Leeds sit 11th in the Premier League table ahead of Saturday's showdown against the bottom-placed Blades.

Harrison told BBC Radio Leeds: "As a group I think especially coming away from Chelsea with a point and then having our first win in London in a while against a tough Fulham side as well, that gives us a lot of confidence and we are just hoping to carry that through.

"Obviously over the international break things have happened and it's been a while but hopefully we can carry it through going into Saturday."
