Leeds United suffered a second successive Championship defeat on Tuesday night, and fans are concerned that the club is going to throw away their play-off chances.
The Whites were beaten 2-0 by Brentford – a result that followed up a 1-0 loss against fellow top six side Reading on Saturday – which has left them just five points above seventh-placed Fulham with six matches of the season remaining.
Garry Monk’s side looked odds-on to secure their play-off spot just a few weeks ago as they beat current leaders Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 at Elland Road, but they have failed to find the back of the net since.
Despite their manager’s comments after the fixture at Griffin Park that his players won’t let their hard work this term “go to waste”, the supporters don’t seem to be convinced.
???? @GarryMonk "This group isn't prepared to let all of the hard work, put in throughout the season, go to waste"
