Tyler Adams and Leeds United are out to replicate their Anfield heroics at Elland Road when Bournemouth visit on Saturday.

An eight-game winless streak left the Whites in desperate need of what Adams described as a 'turning point' when they travelled to Liverpool last weekend, and a 2-1 victory secured with a 90th-minute winner could be that very thing. But the visit of Bournemouth to LS11 this weekend will provide more evidence as to how pivotal the Merseyside performance was for Jesse Marsch and his men.

For midfielder Adams, three points was all that had been missing prior to the clash with the Reds.

"Obviously a good result for the team," he said. "Where we were at, we said we needed a turning point in our season and I think we got it. It's been a tough couple of months. We've tried hard to develop the team in the right way and we're taking nice steps forward but we just haven't got the results so this was a good one for us."

Defeats by Leicester City and Fulham drained public confidence in Marsch and his project at Elland Road but according to Adams the team and its head coach have retained their belief in their ability. Nevertheless, that win at Anfield will come as a shot in the arm at a good time, as long as Leeds can do what they didn't in the wake of good performances against Chelsea and Arsenal, and follow it up.

What Leeds are looking for is a rare, but oh-so-valuable commodity.

"Consistency is the hardest thing to find in football," said Adams. "Now we need to try and replicate that performance against every team in the league that we come against. Next game will be at Elland Road so we're excited to go home and try to replicate that."
