Leeds have jumped to the defence of Kevin Blackwell and condemned those responsible for sending the under-fire manager threatening mail.
Club statement: 'Following the statement made by Kevin Blackwell regarding a threatening letter sent to him, the club believes that this will only serve to strengthen the resolve of everyone to unite behind the club as we enter the final, but most important part of the season.
'Leeds United are delighted at the rapid progress the club have made under the management of Kevin Blackwell.
'To have qualified for the play-offs with four matches still remaining is the envy of the majority of clubs in the Championship.
'Results over the last six games have been disappointing for all concerned, especially the players and management staff.
'However, we are fourth in the table looking up, not fourth from bottom looking down.
'There is, however, no excuse or cause for the sending of threatening letters to the manager or any employee of the club.
'As a club we take a very serious view of this and condemn the action. Those who issue such threats are not true supporters of Leeds United and we disown them.'
