MIDFIELDER Adam Forshaw says Leeds United will remain focused on “putting in a performance and getting some points” and not worry about the mathematics concerning Sunday’s Championship hosting of Bristol City.

The televised fixture against the Robins presents an obvious opportunity for United to make big inroads on a direct promotion rival but Forshaw says the Whites would be targeting a much-needed three points this weekend whoever they were playing.

“We will be working hard this week and we are looking forward to it.”

Forshaw has settled quickly into United’s side following his January switch from Middlesbrough, and Sunday’s fixture will be the midfielder’s second Whites outing at Elland Road. Forshaw beamed: “The fans are unbelievable.
