Another loss . 8 points off 2nd and 3 off 6th. They need more consistency to drive momentum.
It looks like the 3 promoted last season are going to be relegated.
Leeds need to have the momentum to go straight up and stay up .

The Championship really is a very long season, so although we are some way off the automatic promotion spots, there is still plenty of time to go on a run and aim for the top two, although Leicester look - even this early - guaranteed to bag one of the automatic promotion spots, such is their form.

A very god run since the end of the transfer window had seen Leeds climb the table but the good run came to a shuddering halt away to Southampton last Saturday, when a very lethargic performance was punished by some very good Southampton finishing. A bounce back was needed and we won 1-0 at home to QPR on Wednesday although maybe made harder work of it than required.

Bristol City at home this afternoon and another three points needed, and based on current form, should be achieved, although Leeds can never take any opposition for granted. A win today would leave Leeds well placed going into the international break and the hope would be that we can start getting players back from injury thereafter. Djed Spence and Gnonto are two that we really could be doing with.

Lastly, a shout out to Rutter who at long last is beginning to show real quality and provide evidence of why we shelled out close to £30 million for him.

Leeds giving Huddersfield a hammering.

Birmingham look set for a 3rd under Rooney. What were they at sacking John Eustace. They were in the play offs and now sliding down the League

The win at Leicester was a massive result and a brilliant performance against top class opposition. It indicates that Leeds are perfectly capable of staying in the promotion shake up to the very end. The top two, Leicester and Ipswich, still have a significant points advantage but Leeds have now won away against both of them which sends out a strong message. We are looking solid at the back, at long last, and clean sheets will be crucial in a long and draining championship season.


Second and is it 8 wins in a row now ? Not too shabby

Saints still have a game in hand but we're going well. That was a tough game today. I'm not sorry to see the last of Plymouth for this year. 4 tight games.
