Leeds boss Sam Allardyce has warned his players they cannot afford to lose against Newcastle in Saturday's lunchtime kick-off.
He challenged his squad to use the fear of relegation to spur them to retain top-flight status with three games to go.
“To give ourselves the best chance we’ve got to try and get a point on the board but more importantly three if we can,” Allardyce said.
“But I have said to the players and I will say it now: ‘When we come off the field on Saturday, we can’t afford to lose.’
“We must get something. The biggest thing that can happen on Saturday is that we don’t lose."
He further disclosed that his goal was to get to the final day still in with a chance of survival after losing 2-1 to Manchester City in his first game as head coach last week.
"Then we’ve got a point on the board," the former Newcastle boss added.
"I want to still be in it when we play Tottenham.
"But the fear of relegation needs to drive them on.
"The fear of losing their Premier League status should make them fight hard.”
