LEEDS defender Liam Cooper believes the match against Albion on Sunday is "massive" for the club.

Albion travel to Elland Road to take on Leeds as they look to cement their place in the top half of the Premier League following a brilliant run of form that has yielded 14 points from the previous 21 available.

The run includes impressive wins over Arsenal, Tottenham, Wolves and Manchester United.

Leeds on the other hand have lost their previous three games and are winless in four, a set of results that have left the Yorkshire side dwelling in the relegation zone, one point from safety.

Last time out Leeds were comfortably beaten by Chelsea 3-0 and defender Cooper has admitted that a result against Albion is needed to help with the fight for survival.

He told LUTV: “We have to pick the lads up, we’ve got a massive game at home at the weekend.

“We all need to pull together and make it one hell of an atmosphere here at the weekend, like the fans always do, and we have to produce on the pitch as well.

“It’s a massive game, let’s make a right good go of it. From our point of view, my message to the lads is that we can’t feel sorry for ourselves, we’re in a fight and we know that.

“We’ve got to go and be positive, approach the game and get a result in any way possible.

“It doesn’t have to be pretty, it doesn’t have to be nice, we have to go and do it the Leeds way and hopefully we can do that at the weekend.”

Albion have a good record against Leeds since the Yorkshire side was promoted last season, winning twice and drawing once.
