The Whites are currently 12th in the league table with 42 points from 30 matches, eight points behind sixth-placed Reading, who occupy the final play-off spot.
However, the 20-year-old right-back is confident that Brian McDermott's side can make a late push and keep their Premier League promotion hopes alive.
"It is never out of reach, especially in this league," he told Leeds' official website.
"There have been surprises in the past with results. We are just looking to the next game and then the games after that.
"I think that every game will be tough from now until the end of the season. We'll prepare for each game specifically and set up a team that will do a job against them.
"We'll go to Middlesbrough and do our best and hopefully we'll get the three points. You want to win every game but sometimes when it is out of reach it is good to get a draw.
"For instance a draw down at Brighton would have been a good result. But wins are what get you maximum points and points are what get you up the table."
