Leeds United's on-loan goalkeeper Alex McCarthy believes Simon Grayson's side have a great chance of winning promotion.

The talented shot-stopper joined from Reading following an injury to first-choice Andy Lonergan after he broke a finger against Doncaster.

McCarthy has made five appearances for Leeds, helping the West Yorkshire side to four victories - including three clean sheets.

The 22-year-old, who is expected to feature in United's weekend trip to Watford, has enjoyed his stint with the Elland Road club.
