Leeds fans furious about missing out on stuttering playoff race

Leeds fans have been discussing the poor form of the remaining playoff candidates, and they’re fuming that their side have passed up the chance to be in the race.

This is normally the time of year where the playoff hopefuls find their form, with the exception of Derby County of course, who seem to get worse as the season nears its end.

This season however, there are six teams vying for the last two playoff places, and of those six only Millwall could really be considered to be in their best form.

Excluding Millwall, none of the teams from Aston Villa in 4th to Preston North End in 10th have more than one win in their last four games, and Leeds fans are furious that they haven’t kept pace.

Leeds were looking nailed on for a playoff spot before Christmas, but a torrid run of form since then has left the side dangling in mid-table, just waiting for the season to end.

Aston Villa are probably safe in 4th, seven points clear of 7th, but the remaining two spots are up for grabs. Barring something remarkable, Leeds’ awful run of form in 2018 has excluded them from the worst playoff race in recent memory, and fans are not happy about it.
