LUFC Bates - We need to go up for the fans sake
Leeds United chairman Ken Bates says the club need to win promotion this season for the fans sake.
Leeds are currently in fifth place in the championship, nine points behind West Ham who are in the second automatic promotion spot.
Speaking in the Daily Express, Bates said, We need to get promoted this year. Not financially but for the fans' sake.
'I actually spoke to Simon Grayson about it after the Barnsley game.
'He reassured me that we were going to get promoted so I said to him, 'How come we're fifth then?' We'll see.'
Leeds main problem this season has been their inconsistency. They have not won any of their last four home games but have won five of their last six on their travels.
They have won no more than two games in a row this season, with their longest unbeaten run being five games.
The division once again looks wide open with just nine points separating the last play-off place and the final relegation spot.
