HEAD COACH Thomas Christiansen is calling for calm amid Leeds United’s stellar progress under his tenure as part of an adventure that has only “just begun”.

Leeds remain unbeaten under Christiansen with the Whites jumping to third place in the Championship table with Saturday evening’s impressive 2-0 victory at Nottingham Forest.

United are just one point behind second-placed Ipswich Town and the Whites are the Football League’s only team to remain unbeaten outside of the Premier Division in league and cup.

Attention has now turned to United’s quest to land another striker before the closure of the summer transfer window on Thursday night with Leeds continuing in their pursuit of Hamburg’s German striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga.

The Whites will return to action after the international break with a home clash against Burton Albion a week on Saturday in which a victory could send Leeds into the top two.

And Christiansen admits there is still plenty more to come from his new-look side with the head coach hoping that the inevitable setbacks of Championship football are minimal for the Whites.

“We have to be calm and this has just begun,” said Christiansen.

“Of course, I like the support that the team is getting but we have to be realistic that the football will not continue always with the wins or good performances.

“There will be moments when we have bad times.

“But we will try to make sure that these bad moments are just for one day and that we go back on the right track again and try and be regular in the league and perform well.”

Of course, I like the support that the team is getting but we have to be realistic that the football will not continue always with the wins or good performances.

Leeds have several players away on international duty and 20-year-old goalkeeper Bailey Peaock-Farrell has become the latest Whites player to bag an international call-up.

The ’keeper has been called up to the Northern Ireland squad for their World Cup Qualifiers against San Marino and Czech Republic. Peacock-Farrell has made just one appearance for the Whites.
