Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson still believes that the club will finish in the Championship play-off positions despite the odds being stacked against them with two fixtures of the campaign remaining.

The Whites spent a large chunk of the season in the top six but four defeats in their last six matches has seen them drop out at the worst possible time.
Despite being three points behind sixth-placed Fulham with an inferior goal difference to the Cottagers Jansson – who has quickly become a fans’ favourite following some brilliant and committed performances this term – is confident that the players will get the end of season result they want, starting against Norwich City at Elland Road on Saturday.
Leeds supporters were quick to have their say on the Swede’s comments via social media, and they were impressed with his attitude and fighting talk ahead of the crucial Canaries clash.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
@LUFC You just can't help but love the big fella! Can't wait to see him lead our team next season. Make him captain. MOT

@LUFC Chances right now are not good. But if MU can win the premiership in 92-93(I.T goal), then we can get the play off place come 5th May.

@LUFC Yeah something will happen …we'll get 6 points, be no good if Fulham also get 6 points too
