Leeds United welcome Birmingham City to Elland Road this weekend with three points a must for Neil Redfearn’s side.
Leeds are now just two points clear of the Championship relegation zone and a defeat this afternoon could see them slip into the bottom three – something that was unthinkable when Redfearn was first appointed permanent manager following the departure of Darko Milanic.
Birmingham will not have given up on a play-off place with plenty of football still to be played and this match will be another chance for them to climb further up the table following their outstanding recent run.
The last match between these two sides ended 1-1 but that will not help either side this time round.
That said, Leeds have not won any of their last seven matches and things need to change very quickly.
