Midweek Preston v Leeds should be quite a game.
Preston need to win or their play off hopes are gone.
Leeds need to win to keep the automatic promotion dream alive.
A draw not really much use to either side and Leeds would then be relying on Birmingham to beat Sheffield United.
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

Always been able to rely on Leeds for a bottle job, especially if you were an opposing fan in the 70's :-&

I hope we win tonight but, if not, worse case scenario, we would be 4 points behind with 5 to play so, all still to play for.

Personally, I think we will miss out on automatic as Norwich are too far ahead and Sheff are solid and wont drop enough points. We are, however, the best of the rest so should get through the play offs. Good news for me as, for the past 5 years I have, rather optimistically, booked flights back to the UK to coincide with the play off final....same again this year.

A good 3 points for the mighty whites last night. Not the best of performances, but a win is a win.
And all in front of over 5,500 travelling Leeds fans.
Sheffield, over to you!

The future's bright, the future's white.

Next game for Leeds - Sheffield Wednesday in the late KO on Saturday. Sure to be a feisty one.
5 games to go. [-o<

If the unthinkable happens and they DO go up, at least it will give Jimmy Milner somewhere to go for his last few seasons :-$

A scintillating performance by Leeds United against Sheffield Wednesday last night. Could and should have had more than 1 goal, but all's well that ends well. :D
After Millwall's well deserved point at Bramall lane the mighty whites now have a 3 point advantage over the Blades.
4 games to go, and as it stands, 10 points needed.
Believe!

Great article by Henry Winter in the Times about everybody's favourite club. You have to pay for the full article but, this gives a flavour.

A good article, explains nicely about why the EPL needs teams like Leeds and Aston Villa. undoubtedly the 2 best sets of fans in the Championship, 3rd being Sheffield Wednesday's, imo.
Roll on Friday.
