As Leeds United resign themselves to losing striker Chris Wood, his team-mate Stuart Dallas says they are not a one-man team and will cope without the centre forward.
The New Zealander was left out of the squad that beat Sunderland 2-0 on Saturday and boss Thomas Christiansen confirmed he has all but sealed a move away from Elland Road.
Burnley appears to be the most likely destination for last seasonâ€™s Championship top scorer.
However, Dallas, who scored the second of Leedsâ€™ goals on Saturday, has warned the Yorkshire clubâ€™s rivals that they will still be a threat even without their prolific striker.
After Samuel Saiz netted in the first half, the Northern Ireland international came off the bench to make the game safe in the second half.
â€œGoing away anywhere in the Championship and getting three points is a big statement but coming here, this team have just come down from the Premier League,â€ he told The Yorkshire Evening Post.
â€œThereâ€™s a lot of expectation for them to go straight back up but weâ€™ve shown that weâ€™re more than ready and more than good enough to cope with these teams.â€
And with Wood expected to seal a Â£15 million move to the top flight, Dallas pointed to the Whitesâ€™ unbeaten record so far in the Championship as evidence that they will do fine without him.
â€œPeople probably looked at it and maybe thought it was going to affect us but it didnâ€™t and we showed that weâ€™re more than a one-man team,â€ he said.
â€œWeâ€™re big enough to deal with these setbacks.
â€œThe manager has shown faith in every player and we can only move on now. Whatever will be, will be.
â€œIf Woodyâ€™s move goes through we wish him well. He scored 30 goals last season and obviously itâ€™s hard to replace a striker who does that but we have belief in this squad. We have a squad here who are capable of achieving great things.
â€œWoodyâ€™s chosen to go a different way and we wish him well but from our point of view we just get on with it and keep moving forward.â€
Woodâ€™s departure would leave the Elland Road side a little light upfront, although with Saiz, Dallas and Kalvin Phillips already on the scoresheet this season, they have already gone some way to proving that goals come from many different areas.
However, with Souleymane Doukara and Caleb Ekuban – who started on Saturday – his only other specialist centre-forwards available, Christiansen will be expected to use some of the money from Woodâ€™s transfer to sign cover.
Leeds are next in action when they travel to The City Ground to play Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
