Leeds United's 1-0 loss to Fulham on Saturday afternoon has filled many fans with despair.
Only two weeks ago, Neil Redfearn's men were convincingly brushing aside league-leaders Derby County. Now, they have lost two on the bounce - with Fulham consigning Redfearn to his first defeat as a manager at Elland Road this season.
What's worse is that Leeds are now down to 19th in the Championship table, only five points above the drop.
It is natural, then, that some supporters are starting to worry. Hugo Rodallega's second-half winner settled matters as the Cottagers left Leeds with all three points, while former striker Ross McCormack withstood plenty of booing before applauding the home fans at full-time.
Where next for Redfearn's Leeds? Goalscoring has been a big problem this term and, if there was any side you would expect to net against during the current campaign, it is Fulham - especially without their first-choice goalkeeper. But Leeds finished goalless again - and a growing number of supporters are starting to fear a relegation battle.
For some, it has already been a relegation scrap for some weeks. Others feel it is coming on if Leeds aren't careful. Many, though, are now convinced that Leeds are firmly in the thick of one.

Afraid to say it #lufc we are already involved in the relegation battle. Simples. Not good enough.— Tim Blain (@The_Swell_Shark) December 13, 2014
Okay, now I fear for the season, firmly in a relegation scrap #lufc— Tom (@thomas_wilson04) December 13, 2014
We can't beat Fulham at home. If you didn't think we were in a relegation battle before this afternoon, reconsider that thought. #lufc— Chantelle Lunn (@clunn1989) December 13, 2014
