Leeds United’s bid to make the Championship playoffs will continue on Saturday afternoon when they travel to Burton Albion in what has become a key fixture for Garry Monk’s side.
A 1-0 defeat at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday afternoon left Leeds in seventh position in the table – level on points with sixth-place Fulham entering the final three matches of the campaign.
Three wins would surely be enough to secure Leeds a spot in the top six this season, although they have only won one of their last five in the league during a difficult spell.
On Friday afternoon, following the club’s morning training session, Leeds winger Alfonso Pedraza, who is on loan at Elland Road from Spanish outfit Villarreal, took to Twitter, insisting that his team “are ready” for ‘three finals’ over the next few weeks.
The 21-year-old’s words brought a positive reaction from the Leeds supporters on social media as the Whites enter arguably their biggest game of the season this weekend.
