Leeds United midfielder Andy Hughes says it does not matter if the team does not play with style as long as the results keep coming.
A fine start to the League One season has seen Leeds eradicate their 15-point deduction and move to within two points of the table's summit.
Although Hughes acknowledges Leeds have plenty of attacking flair, he believes working hard and grinding out results is equally as important.
"We are playing a lot of football but we're also doing a lot of hard work and grinding," stated Hughes. "We've just got to keep grinding away. It's not going to be nice.
"I honestly can't see us playing amazing week-in, week-out. We've got to keep battling and doing the dirty things as well.
"Some of our players are quality players on the ball but some of us are ugly and know our limits. It's important that we stick to that and don't get carried away."
Meanwhile, Leeds are being linked with a January move for Ipswich's young midfielder Sammy Moore.
The 20-year-old, whose one-year contract ends next summer, is currently on loan at Brentford.
Moore is flattered at being linked with a move, telling The Sun: "It's nice that a big club like Leeds are interested."
