Leeds United head coach Paul Heckingbottom insists that the playoffs are still within reach after yesterday’s 2-2 draw with Bristol City.

Of course Heckingbottom is going to say that his team is within reach of the playoffs, but that is highly unlikely. Leeds are still eight points out of the playoffs with 14 matches remaining in the season and are in 11th place, needing to not only catch Bristol City, but also pass Brentford, Sheffield United, Middlesbrough, and Preston. It would be a very tall task for a team in form, but Leeds haven’t won a match in almost two months. It’s possible that Leeds can go on a tear up the table, but it’s not especially likely.

We’ll see if they are able to beat the odds, but don’t hold your breath.

On to the links.
