LUFC White - Anything can still happen

LUFC White - Anything can still happen

Aidan White believes anything could happen between now and the end of the season has Leeds United try to finish with a flurry and claim a play-off place.

Leeds are currently five points outside the play-off places with just nine games remaining and White believes one or two wins could see Leeds taking advantage of the teams slipping up above them.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, White said, "All it takes is for us to get a couple of wins under our belts and one or two teams slip up and it is anybody`s.

"There are four or five teams who could interchange positions in the play offs. That is how close this league is. Anything could happen so watch this space."


White also feels the side are now much more organised since manager Neil Warnock arrived at the club towards the end of February.

The one noticeable change has been the side conceding less goals and Whit puts that down to being well organised. "Since the new manager has come in I think we have played very well. We have been well organised and hard to beat and we are not conceding many goals, which was our major downfall earlier in the season.

"We are definitely much more organised, starting from the back all the way to the front players. We are defending as a team and that is what is making us so hard to beat and why we haven`t conceded many,"
continued White.

White says the side are improving all the time and there is still belief within the Leeds camp that they can reach the play-offs. "We are improving and to still be in the running for a play-off place I think we are still in a good position.

"The belief is still there between the players, manager and everyone at the club and there is still a lot of hope,"
added White.

Leeds face struggling Nottingham Forest this evening at Elland Road with the midlands side fighting a relegation battle.

When the two sides met at Elland Road last season, just under twelve months ago, Leeds won 4-1 to cement their place in the play-off places ahead of Forest.

The win for Leeds moved them four points clear of Forest with just seven games remaining.

Leeds then picked up just two points from their next five games and they were caught for the final play-off place by Forest, to show that anything can still happen between now and the end of the season.
