‘Pressure” off for Leeds – assistant boss

Leeds United will definitely be playing Championship football next season after a 3-2 win against on Reading on Saturday.

Now that their championship status is confirmed, assistant manager Eddie Gray told LUTV (via HITC): “The last couple of games should give the players a lift. There is no pressure on them now, they could play around with a bit of freedom.”

Steve Evans has lifted Leeds up to the 12th position in the Championship following back-to-back wins, a feat which the club have accomplished four times this season.

However there are rumours of a managerial change for Leeds United with owner Massimo Cellino apparently eager to replace Evans with Italian World Cup winning captain Fabio Cannavaro.

Leeds face Wolves at Elland Road tonight and a win could potentially lift the Whites up into 11th place if QPR fail to get any point at the Amex Stadium against Brighton.

Leeds will want to upgrade from a midtable finish to being promotion contenders next season and with just a few games left to play, the players must perform to prove their worth for the upcoming season.

Will they be playing for Steve Evans or Fabio Cannavaro? Only Massimo Cellino knows.
