Leeds looked to have been dealt a hammer blow in their Premier League survival bid during the closing stages of Sunday's hosting of Norwich as Kenny McLean struck a 91st-minute equaliser.
The Canaries midfielders effort cancelled out Rodrigo's 14th-minute opener but United hit back just three minutes after McLean's leveller as Gelhardt converted a Raphinha pull back to send Elland Road wild.
The 2-1 victory ended a run of six consecutive defeats and sent Leeds four points clear of the drop zone although second-bottom Burnley who are five points adrift have two games in hand.
Gelhardt, though, is confident that his strike and the late drama against Norwich can provide United with a launchpad to bigger and better things ahead of Friday night's trip to seventh-placed Wolves
Asked if he felt that Sunday's epic victory would provide a turning point, Gelhardt told LUTV: "I do. As a group we have already said in the changing room don't stop now.
"We can take all this into Wolves and hopefully get a result there as well.
"We can take it on to the next game now and keep the momentum and put it in against Wolves as well."
