Former Leeds United players Ian Harte and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink have spoken about their former club on Sky Sports show, Goals on Sunday.
Leeds are currently third in the Sky Bet Championship table, following Friday’s 1-0 victory over Derby County.
Harte, who made over 200 appearances for Leeds between 1996 and 2004, was in attendance for Friday’s game said: “I thought the performance against Derby in the first half was pretty special.
“They were in their face and controlled the game from start to finish.”
A promotion challenge looks on the cards for the Whites, with Garry Monk’s side closing the gap to second place Brighton to just six points.
Hasselbaink scored 34 goals for the Yorkshire club, including 18 in the 1998/99 season, before leaving the club in the summer of 1999.
The former QPR manager said: “If you get that club going they are a force. It is a Premier League club and hopefully they do it.
“They are in the top six and if they can keep pushing they top two they might have a chance.”
Leeds’ ex-striker was also full of praise for co-owner Massimo Cellino, for the patience he has shown with head coach Monk, after what was a difficult start to the season.
Leeds face Barnsley in a Yorkshire derby next Saturday as they look to close the gap on the automatic promotion places.
