Glenn Hoddle joked that it is somewhat typical that we are set to travel to Leeds on the back of a thumping win for the home side.
It is likely to be quite an occasion at Elland Road, not only will the club be boosted by such a resounding victory, it is also new manager Peter Reid's first home game.
"It's ironic - it's the luck we have a little bit," laughed the boss. "It is Reidy's first home game against us and they've just won 6-1.
"A lot of teams have been there this season when they've been having a dreadful run and the atmosphere wasn't right. They've now had a change of chairman, a change of manager and a change of results."
However, Glenn does feel that the fact Leeds will be lifted by last weekend's win will not necessarily work against us - given that the team ended a three-match losing streak themselves against Birmingham.
"We're up against it, but I think we've got to look at ourselves and say that we've broken that string of results that we've had and I believe that, perhaps, one swallow doesn't make a summer and there is still a bit of pressure on them.
"They might think they've turned the corner and rightly so, it was a wonderful result. I've always felt that Leeds have got terrific players even though they've had to sell a lot - they've still got a lot of talented players and a base to go from," added Glenn, who will catch up with a former England teammate at Elland Road.
"For me, personally, it's good to see Peter back in the game. I played with him for England, he is a character and we've always got on very well.
"He was great to play with, I felt we complimented each other as players very much and he was always a tough one to play against.
"It's nice to see him back in football."
