LEEDS UNITED will be facing a wounded animal tomorrow night in Ipswich Town.
The Tractor Boys head north after a painful 2-0 derby loss to bitter foes – and promotion rivals – Norwich City in front of the TV cameras at Carrow Road on Sunday afternoon.
A trip to Elland Road now awaits, with Ipswich also having to take on high-flying rivals Middlesbrough, Brentford, Bournemouth, Watford and Wolves between now and the end of 2014-15.
Defender Christophe Berra said: “A defeat’s a defeat. We’re professionals, so whether it’s Norwich City, our local rivals, or Leeds, League One or a Premier League team, we don’t like getting beat.
“It’s a big two months to the end of the season, so we’ve got to dust ourselves down and get ready for Leeds.
“If at the start of the season, you’d have looked at the table and seen us in this position now, three points off the top two, I’m sure the fans would’ve bitten your arm off.
“We can’t be greedy and we’ve got to keep ourselves grounded.”
