Leeds boss Marsch urges calm from fans ahead of Brentford clash

Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch has urged calm from fans ahead of today's final game of the season.

They are third bottom and, due to their inferior goal difference, must collect more points at Brentford than Burnley manage at home to Newcastle if they are to survive.

Marsch said, "I know that they are fervent fans and their emotions can sometimes get the better of them in negative ways. But I've seen only the positive effect.

"I've tried to reiterate that it's massively important for our players to feel that.

"There was one match recently where I read a letter from a fan to the players beforehand. I said to them that it's special to be a player for Leeds United and is unique in many ways.

"The letter said that the players are their heroes and I wanted to make sure they understood that.

"Yes, I know that big moments like this always stir a lot of emotion. But I hope the fans find a way, no matter what, to be at our side and to know we're going to get this right on Sunday."
