Noel Whelan said on The Noel Whelan Show on BBC Radio Leeds on Friday evening (broadcast from 6pm, March 4) that Leeds United should not take anything for granted.
The former Leeds striker suggested that the West Yorkshire outfit should not consider themselves safe from relegation from the Championship until they have enough points.
“No, I can’t, but you take nothing for granted in football, especially in this league,” said Whelen on The Noel Whelan Show on BBC Radio Leeds on Friday evening (broadcast from 6pm, March 4).
“It is a very difficult competitive division to be in. You have got to get the points and mathematically make sure you are out of touch by anybody at the bottom.
"Then we can start building for next season, but you look ahead no further than tomorrow’s game.”
Leeds are 18th in the Championship table at the moment with 38 points from 33 matches.
The Whites are just nine points above the relegation zone, but they do have a game in hand.
The West Yorkshire outfit have a squad good enough to finish above the bottom three, but as Whelan suggests, they should not take anything for granted.
Leeds’s performance and results in recent weeks have been disappointing, and they need to pick up all there points this weekend.
Steve Evans’s side will take on Bolton Wanderers at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.
Bolton are currently second from bottom in the standings, and Leeds fans will expect their team to win the game.
