Leeds fans have become disgruntled with Venables after a string of poor results have left them just three points above the relegation zone in 16th place in the Premiership table.

However, Mills feels that Leeds will be in a much higher place come the end of the season.

"You just have to look at Middlesbrough, they lost a record number of games early on and everyone asked then if he was the right man for the job, but he did it for them," Mills told the BBC.

"I can assure you at Leeds United that we have a fantastic group of players and a great manager, all the players are behind the manager and with the crowd behind us as well, there's no reason that in time we can't go on and start challenging for the top place in the league."
