Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa accepts that it is difficult to stay calm as the Championship campaign reaches a climax.
Leeds face Wigan Athletic on Friday and can be backed at 4/11 to beat the Latics, who are 6/1 to be relegated this season.
Sheffield United's recent wobbles have allowed Leeds to move closer to automatic promotion and Bielsa is keen to finish the job off.
"It is true that it is difficult to stay calm," said the 63-year-old former Chile and Argentina manager. "When the atmosphere close to you is excited it is more difficult to be calm inside yourself.
"You need to have a link with the amateur spirit, because then you have a link with the fans and at the same time there are no footballers who are not fans or don't have this feeling. Professionals need to have balance and calm.
"Our objective is to be focused for the three points that we play for in each game. After every game we have to adapt to the new reality that is the table."
Leeds are 1/5 to be promoted this season while Sheffield United can be backed at 4/5 to go up.
