Neil Redfearn says that he would happy if Leeds United finished the season in the top 10 of the Championship.

Leeds United head coach Neil Redfearn has told LUTV that he wants his side to finish in the top 10 of the Championship this season.

Redfearn made the comments following the Whites’ 1-1 draw with Blackpool away from home on Saturday afternoon.

The West Yorkshire outfit had to come from a goal down to pick up a point at Bloomfield Road in the Championship clash.

The win means that Leeds are now 13th in the league table with 52 points from 39 matches, just two points behind 10th-placed Blackburn Rovers.

“If we could finish in the top 10 from where we were, then it would be a fantastic achievement, to be honest,” Redfearn told LUTV. “We were not looking good at one point, and that’s what we want to do.”

If Leeds finish in the top 10 of the Championship this season, then it will indeed be an achievement for the team.

When Redfearn was appointed the Whites boss on a 12-month rolling contract in November, the former Premier League outfit were close to the relegation zone.

The long-term aim of Leeds is to return to the English top flight, and a top-10 finish in the Championship this campaign will be a sign of progress.
