STUART Dallas admitted Leeds United ran a risk against Sheffield United but says the Whites will now "kick on" after seven points from a last possible nine.

Leeds bossed Saturday's Premier League clash against the Blades at Elland Road but Dallas said the contest became "frantic" as Marcelo Bielsa's side only ever held a one-goal lead.

However, Whites 'keeper Illan Meslier was ultimately rarely troubled and Dallas is now looking for Leeds to push on following wins against Fulham and Sheffield United on the back of a goalless draw at home to high-flying Chelsea.

Leeds are now up to 42 points and sit 11th in the table, 16 points clear of the drop zone with eight games left.

Reflecting on what he thought of the performance in Saturday's 2-1 triumph against the Blades, Dallas told LUTV: "I think aspects of it were really good, certainly the first half.

"In the second half, the game became a bit scrappy and it became a bit frantic at times I think as well towards the end.

"We just needed to put a foot on it and there were chances there for us.

"It didn't really cause us too many problems if I'm being honest but when you are only one goal ahead you always leave yourself open to a setback.

"But we are delighted with the win, we kick on now.

"Our last couple of results have been decent and we are starting to build a little bit of momentum."
