LUFC Warnock - We must beat Middlesbrough
Leeds United boss Neil Warnock admits they must beat Middlesbrough on Sunday if they are to stand any chance of making the play offs this season.
Leeds held out for a 0-0 draw at Hull City on Tuesday night to move them to within five points of the play offs even though they remain in tenth place with just eleven games remaining.
Next up for Leeds is a trip to fourth placed Middlesbrough and Warnock admits it is a must win game. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, "The play-offs will be difficult and we have to win on Sunday. We then just have the minor situation against West Ham."
The point against Hull moved Leeds onto fifty points but they have now won just one of their last six games.
Leeds will need to go on a similar run to that of both Reading and Blackpool in the last two seasons.
At this stage last season, Reading were also in tenth place six points behind the play-off places.
Reading won nine of their last twelve games after winning just one of their previous eight championship games to finish fifth in the table.
Twelve months earlier, Blackpool were four points off the play-off places with just eight games remaining. They had failed to win any of their previous four games but six wins in the last eight games secured a play-off place.
