He told The Sentinel: "Most of the teams get their biggest crowds when Leeds visit," he said. "Everybody knows the size of the club and it's fair to say every other team raised their game whenever they played Leeds.
"I played seven games in a month there and overall I thought I did really well, but obviously there's always the odd game when you know you could have done better."
Dickinson, who also played for Leeds boss Simon Grayson when he was Blackpool manager, wasn't surprised to be recalled after his first month at Elland Road.
"No I wasn't because before I went up there, the gaffer said I was only going for the month to get some games in.
"The gaffer at Leeds just said I had done really well for them. He also said that if I go back to Stoke and I'm not involved, then who knows what can happen."
