Lewis Cook’s response when asked if Leeds’ season is still alive

Lewis Cook seems confident of a successful season for Leeds United.

Lewis Cook has suggested on BBC Radio Leeds that Leeds United’s season is not finished yet.

The 18-year-old Leeds midfielder made the comments following the Whites’ 2-1 victory over Bolton Wanderers away from home at the Macron Stadium in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

“Definitely,” Cook told BBC Radio Leeds when asked if Leeds’s season is still alive. “We are never going to give up. We are going to try to give our all for every game and see what happens.”

Not many would expect Leeds to win the FA Cup this season, but the West Yorkshire outfit are certainly capable of a long run in the prestigious competition.

What about the Championship? The playoffs appear to be beyond Steve Evans’s side at the moment, but could things change in the coming weeks?

The Whites are currently 14th in the Championship table with 36 points from 29 matches.

Leeds are 11 points above the relegation zone and 11 points behind Birmingham City, who are sixth in the standings at the moment and occupy the final playoff spot.

The West Yorkshire outfit will return to league action next weekend when they take on Nottingham Forest at Elland Road.
