Leeds manager Brian McDermott is satisfied his current squad is good enough to challenge for a top-six finish this season.
McDermott's side have won only three of their last nine games in the Sky Bet Championship but lie 10th, six points off a play-off place, in the table following last weekend's 3-2 defeat at Huddersfield.
"We're very much at the stage where we're up and down with the team that we've got," McDermott said.
"We need to be more ruthless in what we do. We get back to 2-2 (on Saturday) and we go gung-ho trying to win the game.
"We didn't need to win the game in the next five minutes, we just needed to do what we had to do to get a result and this is especially so away from home.
"It's something we're working on because I believe we're going to be close.
"If we can get a run of consistency going, we've got decent players, we've just got to learn how to win and what's required to win games, away from home especially.
"Let's see where we are at the end of December. We want to try and be right in the mix, six points off the play-offs.
"I've been here before. If we can get close to where we need to be with 20 games to go, who knows what could happen?"
