Manchester United loanee Lingard, who scored on the night, admitted that the three points is all that mattered,
Lingard told Sky Sports: "We started slow and weren't confident on the ball. We got the goals but if we want to push on for top four we need to be better."
He added: "It is about consistency. We dropped off it a bit today. But the three points are important. We take each game step by step. We learn from each. It is not going to be easy every game. Leeds gave us a good game today. It is about objectives and taking confidence into the next game."
