Leeds boss Marsch: Tomorrow biggest day of career

Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch admits tomorrow's clash with Brentford is the biggest of his career.

Leeds stand on the brink after Burnley leapfrogged them out of the bottom three by clinching a point in a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa on Thursday.

Both sides have 35 points but, crucially, Burnley have the advantage of a far superior goal difference.

With all the top flight's final round of matches scheduled to kick-off at 4pm on Sunday, Marsch said he will be kept updated on the score at Turf Moor.

“You need to know a little bit about what's going on in another match and how to manage that throughout the game and at half-time," he said.

“We'll have communication with our team at half-time for sure and throughout the second half, but the key is that the focus for us is to have a good start, bring ourselves into our match really well, be positive, find a way to get a lead.

“In the reverse way that can put Burnley under pressure if they know that we're having a positive result in our match.

“We have to focus on ourselves, be at our best and play our best, but know exactly what's going on in the other match."

The former New York Red Bulls, Salzburg and Leipzig boss agreed he was preparing for the biggest game of his managerial career.

“Yeah, I was asked that in a few different interviews and I answered it in different ways, but in the end who cares?" he added.

“What's important is our team and that we're all ready for a huge challenge. We're positive in our mindset that we're going to get this done."
