United MIGHT Get Involved In The Play-offs Push

Last updated : 21 December 2015 By Lee Sobot

However, there’s no denying the fact that upwardly mobile Leeds are now only five points behind sixth-placed Ipswich in a division of largely no great shakes except the likes of Boro, Derby, and arguably, Brighton, Hull and Burnley.

6th-spot certainly looks well up for grabs for any team with momentum and Leeds have now taken 16 points from their last possible 24.

Tougher tests await such as next Tuesday’s home clash with Derby but United are on a roll and could move to within two points of the top six if they were to win at Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

That’s a tough fixture but Forest - who are 15th - are beatable.

United will clearly need to strengthen in January to become top six material but head coach Steve Evans said he hoped to at least get Leeds into play-offs contention for the owner to get out his cheque-book.

Five points adrift has to be considered “in contention.”
