The Championship fixtures for the 2017/18 season were released on Wednesday morning with Leeds United travelling to newly-promoted Bolton Wanderers on the opening weekend, but their fans are more concerned about their run-in.
Having narrowly missed out on securing a play-off spot under Garry Monk last season, new Whites manager Thomas Christiansen will be aiming for a top six spot minimum next term and he will know that he needs to get off to a positive start to increase the chances of that happening.
However, the Spaniard will also be looking at the last few months of the campaign, with the Yorkshire outfit due to face potential promotion rivals Sunderland, Aston Villa and Norwich City in the last four weeks.
Leeds supporters were quick to have their say on the fixtures via social media, with many believing the final month of the season will be ‘tough’.
Here is the full fixture list and just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Jesus…look at the back end of the run in ?
