A poor December and January saw Leeds United go from having a 10-point lead over third-place Preston North End to being level on points with automatic promotion rivals Fulham. Indeed, it’s quite a stunning turnaround, though it must be said, the Whites may still have the upper hand in the race for Premier League football.
A graphic from BBC (via James Holliday) looking at the remaining fixtures between the top seven teams showed that the Yorkshire outfit have just Scott Parker’s side to play at Elland Road. However, the Yorkshire outfit will be wary of taking the so-called lesser sides lightly having already dropped points at home to the likes of relegation-threatened Wigan Athletic.
One fan wasn’t feeling too optimistic.
All banana skins. We need to play like demons fir EVERY game.

Looks promising James but the results in this league are so unpredictable let’s not get carried away yet. We are the best team in this league by miles but just struggle to put teams away. ALAW
