Championship

Leeds United positions in home form table, and away is quite shocking

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United would be in the relegation zone on away form only.

Leeds United's loss to Ipswich Town at the weekend emphasised their away day blues.

They were hammered 4-1 by the Tractor Boys, just seven days after beating league leaders derby at home.

So what would the Championship table look like taking into account home games only?

The answer is highly encouraging for Neil Redfearn's side. They have the sixth best home record in the league, play-off form.

With 18 points from 10 games played at Elland Road, they are just five behind Ipswich Town's Championship best home form of 23 points accrued.

The opposite end of the spectrum is far more worrying.

On away form only, Leeds United would be 23rd in the Championship, deep in the relegation zone.

They have five points from 10 away games, one win and two draws, losing five of their last six on their travels.

It's only one more than Blackpool, and Leeds have a goal difference on -12, as opposed to a +6 at home.

While Leeds appear in no real danger of the drop, their relegation away form has to be solved or it will continue to hold back any loftier ambitions they have.

With their next two away games against Nottingham Forest and then a quick return match against Derby, a big change in performance and approach will be needed to turn it around.
