Leeds United have had a stop-start campaign this season but their recent performances have led to a lot of confidence amongst the fans.
They have won 6 of their last 7 games now, having lost only against table-toppers Wolves and their performance in the 3-1 win against QPR only furthered the good feeling around the club.
And it seems the hierarchy shares the same sentiment as boss Thomas Christiansen was spotted in discussion with owner Andrea Radrizzani, along with heavyweights such as Victor Orta and Ivan Bravo after the match last night.

Georges-Kevin N’Koudou finally opened his account for Spurs during their champions league clash with APOEL earlier in the week.
After their recent struggles in the league, Pochetino’s men needed a strong performance to boost their morale and they did just that with a strong showing during the Champions League 3-0 win.
And it was the French winger who wrapped up the victory in the 80th minute, cutting inside his marker before firing in with the aid of a double deflection.
N’Koudou was expectedly over the moon following his goal and took to Twitter to have some light-hearted fun aimed at Harry Kane’s goal-scoring record for the North London outfit.
Obviously not serious but he still had to save face after Harry Kane scored a brace against the Potters during the 5-1 rout yesterday and the Frenchman did it hilariously.

To get supporters warmed up for the clash, Liverpool sponsors BetVictor couldn’t resist assembling a combined XI for the game and needless to say, the team mostly consists of players from the red–side of the Merseyside.
Knocked out of Europa League and 9 points adrift their city rivals, the combined XI featured just one player from Sam Allardyce’s squad.

Tottenham Hotspur romped to a 5-1 victory over Stoke City today to end a series of disappointing results in the league.
Harry Kane was back to his destructive ways, while Son and Eriksen found the back of the net during the second half to complete the drubbing.
Spurs were in the lead just 20 minutes into the game after Stoke captain Ryan Shawcross stuck a leg to a Heung-Min Son cross and ended up placing the shot inside his own net.
The Korean wreaked more havoc in the second half as he converted a through ball from Alli and assisted Eriksen on either side of a Harry Kane brace. The Potters bagged a consolation in the concluding minutes of the game as Shawcross headed past Lloris following a corner.
Post-game, Son and ex-Spurs defender Kevin Wimmer were spotted sharing a light moment on the pitch. The two friends seem to have held on to the bromance they developed since sharing the same dressing room at Tottenham and had a reunion after the full-time whistle.
What an adorable moment, check out the photo below –
Fresh from defying Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, Chelsea slumped to a 1-0 defeat against fellow Londoners West Ham today.
Having been denied a point by a late Raheem Sterling strike last weekend, West Ham found themselves ahead within 6 minutes, thanks to some brilliant interplay between Manuel Lanzini and goalscorer Marko Arnautovic.
The Austrian striker scored his first goal for the club, slotting a brilliant curling strike to beat Thibaut Courtois. Boosted by the goal, West Ham players were seen at their flamboyant best at times, especially Arthur Masuaku, who pulled of a stunning skill move near the sidelines to keep the possession during a moment in the game.
West Ham secured their first win in 9 games, and now face Arsenal in another tough fixture next week.

Arsenal had never gone without scoring for more than three games in Europe and they responded well in their final game of the group stage by putting 6 past Bate Borisov last night.
Arsene Wenger made 11 changes to his side and even though the game was a dead rubber for the team as they had already topped the group, it was a good chance for the likes of Giroud, Wilshere and Welbeck to stake their claim for a spot in the starting 11.
And boy does Giroud want that spot! Besides scoring stunning goals, the Frenchman is also known for putting together beautiful passes. Giroud made sure of his reputation as he made another peach of a pass to Walcott last night.
Would have surely been a memorable goal for the fans as this flick from Giroud over the top of the BATE defenders was pure filth.
Take a look at the pass below-
