Kenny McLean has admitted Norwich City wanted to take an advantage to Elland Road for the play-off second leg - but says the squad won't be lacking in belief. 

A Carrow Road stalemate has set up a straight shoot-out against Leeds United on Thursday, with the prize being a place in the final at Wembley. 

Norwich were unable to cash in on a quick start, fading as the game wore on and handing more control to Daniel Farke's side. They will head to Yorkshire as the underdogs - but McLean has vowed to leave it all out there. 

"Before the game, we watched to take an advantage there but that's not the case," McLean said. "It doesn't mean that we don't believe that we can go there and get a result.

"There's no doubt about it - we know it's going to be tough but if we look at the game earlier in the season, then we can take massive confidence from that because we controlled a lot of that game.

"It's a one-off game. One that both teams are going to give everything for and trust me when I say this - we are going to leave nothing out there." 

The first leg in scorching conditions in NR1 saw both teams neutralise each other, with both managers speaking of their contentment post-match. 

McLean shared that view, believing the key was to ensure they managed to survive the occasion unscathed with the tie on a knife-edge. 

"[It was] tough. It was a bit cagey at times," he said. "You don't want to go into the second leg at a disadvantage, and you could see that by not committing as many bodies forward in the attack and press.

"We could have done a lot better in a lot of moments, in the first half especially. I thought we controlled most of the game in the first half but could have done better with the final pass.

"Second half, we could have been better with the ball and that is something we will watch back and see what we can do ahead of Thursday.

That's what happens when you get late into the game, especially in the home leg. You don't want to end up losing it. We came out of the traps.

"It's all to play for. We'll rest, recover - see what we can do and recover."
