Leeds United correspondent Phil Hay has been reacting to the club’s latest fixture change.
The Lowdown: Palace details
Will Marsch keep Leeds up?
Yes, I still have faith!
No, we are finished!
They now have just seven games remaining, one of which is a trip to Selhurst Park to take on Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace later this month.
The Latest: Hay reacts
Hay took to Twitter to react to the news of the changes following Leeds’ official post. He described it as an ‘awkward kick-off time’ for Marsch and co. and added that there isn’t enough notice for travelling supporters.
“An awkward kick-off time anyway but for supporters travelling to the game, this is nowhere near enough notice.”
The Verdict: Not a surprise
Plenty of Leeds fans may already have made plans for the trip to London later this month, with the fixture being rearranged just over three weeks before.
It isn’t ideal news for the Whites faithful, but it shouldn’t exactly come as a shock, with the Premier League and broadcast giants regularly changing games at late notice, consistently proving that fans are at the bottom of their agenda when making these calls.
Hopefully, fans will be making the trip south later this month with the club in a healthy position in the table, with Saturday’s trip to Watford key as Marsch looks to guide Leeds to safety.
