Leeds United striker Ross McCormack is confident his side will finish in the Championship top six this season after going to within three points of the play-off places with a win over rock-bottom Yeovil Town.

The Scot scored both goals to tally his personal tally to eight for the season as The Whites followed up defeat to Huddersfield Town last week with a win which keeps them in the early promotion hunt.

While Leeds have won three home games on the bounce, Brian McDermott's side have lost their last four on the road, form which has damaged their early season standing but McCormack expects a turnaround in standards and a push for the top six.

"It's still early doors and we'd like to be higher but we're within touching distance," McCormack said.

"Another couple of wins and we could make the top six but it's March or April when you need to be there.

"We've been a bit 'one step forward, one step back' this season. We win at home and then lose away.

"It's frustrating. But if we can win most of our home games and sort ourselves out away from home then we will be close."

Leeds face fellow former Premier League sides Charlton Athletic, Middlesbrough and Blackburn Rovers throughout the remainder of November as they seek to lay down a platform for a New Year push at the top two.

But McDermott says no game is a given and is keen to revel in victory over Yeovil.

"You wouldn't want to bet on this league," the Leeds boss said. "You cannot call a result, I couldn't anyway.

"People say that when Yeovil come to Leeds it should be a gimme, but I thought they were good on Saturday and I saw them play against Nottingham Forest and they fully deserved their win.

"Gary Johnson has done a good job with his team and I'm absolutely delighted to win the game and keep a clean sheet."
