Former Leeds United striker Robbie Blake hasn't ruled out that his old team can go up this season.

Former Leeds United forward Robbie Blake offered his old side hope of being promoted this season when he spoke to talkSPORT.

Blake suggested that the Championship has seen a very recent trend of teams competing for top places in the table, where they have exceeded expectations.

Leeds have endured a decent start to the season with two draws and they will be looking to register a win this evening in their game against Bristol City.

“It is a long way off but I think over the last couple of years you’ve seen teams up there who don’t expect to be up there, no disrespect to the Brentfords and teams like that, but they’re no way near the size of what Leeds are,” he told talkSPORT.

“They’ve got a very good squad now blended in with youth and experience.”

Leeds need a win

It’s very important for Leeds to register a win this evening against a Bristol City side which has already shipped six goals this season.

Leeds look as though they are going to be very difficult to beat while Uwe Rosler is in charge and hopefully the club can nick three points, which moves them up a few positions in the table.

A win would also do wonders for the current confidence and belief in the team, giving the side a little bit of momentum as they look to make themselves a very dangerous side to play against when they travel on the road.

It’s still too early to judge Leeds and still too early to say they won’t be one of the teams competing to go up.
