Some Leeds United fans have reacted to a recent tweet from journalist Phil Hay over the potential of contact training returning to the Championship.
With Premier League teams returning to contact training and being given the green light to resume the 2019/2020 season from June 17, anticipation amongst fans of those teams in England’s second flight is now growing.
Leeds sit top of the Championship table and are very much on the verge of gaining an automatic promotion to England’s top tier.
Returning to training with social distancing measures this week, clubs are now waiting for an announcement similar to that of the Premier League, and Hay believes that is incoming.
If the Premier League is on (as it seems to be), the Championship won’t be far behind. Expect a step up to contact training shortly. #lufc

A growing debate over whether or not to play out the Championship season or go by a points-per-game system has been mentioned in various media outlets over the last few weeks, but with the Premier League’s latest announcement – you would have to feel the English Football League will follow suit.
Leeds, who missed out on promotion last term via the play-offs, have been in excellent form this season, seeing themselves sit top of the table at present.
Below are just some of the fan reactions to Hay’s latest tweet. Naturally most were excited about it, as it gives them a great chance of winning the Championship title on the pitch over the course of the summer…
Summer football is coming, open the pubs 😜
