Leeds United fans are remaining confident of gaining promotion to the Premier League despite their 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United on Saturday.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side have dropped out of the automatic promotion spots as a result of their defeat to the Blades at Elland Road.
The Whites had been on a three-game unbeaten run prior to their clash with Chris Wilder’s men but were downed by a 71st-minute Chris Basham strike.
To add insult to injury, goalkeeper Kiko Casillas was sent off in injury time after bringing down Billy Sharp while the last man. Having used all of their substitutes, Pontus Jansson, seemingly nursing an injury, was called upon to go in goal.
Leeds were unable to find a way back into the game despite numerous late attacks but fans are remaining calm as the promotion race comes down to the wire.
Norwich currently lead the Championship with 75 points, with Sheffield United now second on 74 and Leeds third on 73.
Supporters, though, think there is enough time for Bielsa’s men to find their way back into the automatic promotion spots. Take a look at the best of the reaction on Twitter below!

Leeds fans on here talking like we’ve just lost promotion. We’re one point behind, have the better games (Ipswich). Why give up on the lads after such an incredible season so far. Fans acting like it’s the end of the world.

Hurts that, and already had a load of cocky Sheff Utd fans thinking they’re up. Long, long way to go. We’re still massively in the mix and a load of twists to come.. hope everyone does write us off-it’s when we are at our best.. still believe #lufc

On the positive side, 2 week break, get players rested and back. Still everything to play for, still only 1 point behind 2nd. I still believe, despite the missed opportunity to go 5 points clear. #lufc

Still, plenty of games to go. I still have faith. In Marcelo we trust. Praying Pontus hasn't picked up a long injury ?. Long two weeks ahead #lufc
