Aidy White: Looking forward to derby

Aidy White: Looking forward to derby

The club have launched a 'Paint It White' campaign this week in a bid to turn Elland Road into a sea of white for the derby clash, offering replica shirts for £10 for all fans attending the game.

"It's a good deal for the fans and a good promotion to get everybody there in their white shirts," White told Press Association Sport.

"To look around the stadium on Saturday and see everyone there in white, it could be a fantastic sight and can only give the players an added lift."

White, who has found himself on the substitutes' bench in recent weeks following Stephen Warnock's arrival, insists a top-six finish is still within the club's graps despite three successive draws, but concedes Leeds will not have it all their own way on Saturday.

"It's not going to be an easy game at all," he added. "Local derbies are always harder, everybody's always up for the games, players and fans.

"I'm sure our's will get right behind us and we can go into the game full of confidence and belief.

"Our aim is three points. We need them to keep our push for the play-offs going.

"I'm sure we can get the three points and push on from there, but it will be tough."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
