Simon Grayson wants his side to "play the game and not the occasion" when they take on Millwall in the second leg of their play-off semi-final at a sold-out Elland Road.
Leeds have turned in woeful displays in their last two play-off finals and manager Grayson is aware of the dangers of some of his players freezing in front of a partisan crowd of 38,000.
He said: "You try and treat it as another game. We'll work on Thursday morning, rest in the afternoon and be ready in the evening."
He added: "You have to make sure you don't get carried away and play the game and not the occasion.
"The players are buzzing and they can't wait for Thursday to come around. These are the moments you enjoy as a player.
"Over the past few months, we've tried to play football, defend when we need to, and put in energetic performances, and that's what we'll do again."
