Good Morning. It's Monday 9th March, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...


Leeds return to Apex of the Championship in style

Leeds returned to the Apex of the Championship after a comfortable 2-0 win over neighbours Huddersfield Town. The Whites took the lead in spectacular fashion. Harrison delivered a peach of a ball to the far side of the penalty area, and there was on form Luke Ayling to volley the ball first time from 25 yards, crashing through the roof of the net via the crossbar giving Terriers keeper Jonas Lossl no hope.

Aylings 'Zico' style strike earned the wing back his third goal in five games, and fourth overall for the season, making the 28yo the fourth highest goal scorer for the Whites this season, along with Klich. Throughout Aylings 135 appearances, he has now found the back of the net six times.

Patrick Bamford returned to the scoresheet following a seven game drought 5 minutes into the second half. A free kick from outside the penalty area was headed across goal by Ben White, but the big Danish keeper managed to get his finger tips onto the ball; Bamford reacted the quickest to prod the ball home from three yards giving him his thirteenth goal of the season and beyond Huddersfield's reach.

To make the win even more satisfying, West Brom and Fulham were held to draws whilst Nottingham Forest were thrashed at home by Millwall 3-0. Brentford moved into fourth spot with a convincing 5-0 demolition job over Sheffield Wednesday. The Whites are top on 71 points, two points less than they were on this time last year. The difference being that they are seven points (with GD) clear of Fulham whereas last term the Blades were only two points behind us!

Currently the Bookies have Leeds at 1/66 to get promoted. It means you would have to place £330 to win a fiver!

Leeds have a 97% chance of Promotion

According to the Soccer prediction site FiveThirtyEight, Leeds are predicted to collect 18 points from their remaining nine games (18 from 27pts).

They forecast that the Whites will top the Championship come May with 89 points with the Baggies in second place on 85 points.

Would you settle with 18 points from the last nine games?

hey if that refers to me mate, dont worry, no offence taken whatsoever. In fact its censorship on other forums that brought me here.

Sorry if I seem to be in party mood, but this time last month i was so tense, but 5 wins later and boy am I ready to party!
You party as much as you want mate, you live in the right place to do it.

Agreed, strange decision imo. Tempting fate, counting chickens, very probably,but folk don't have to read or contribute. Not the best way to treat a new member, we always need new blood.
