Steve Evans' response when asked whether Leeds United can still make the play-offs

Leeds United are currently 12 points adrift of the top six in the Championship table.

Manager Steve Evans has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he won’t be getting carried away with Leeds United’s strong run of form.

The Whites have won their last three matches in quick succession to increase optimism levels around Elland Road.

The Yorkshire club have climbed up the Championship table at a rapid rate, and there is now talk that a late push for the top six could be possible.

However, Evans says that he will only start thinking about making the top six, if his side are able to beat Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

“The only thing for us is to concentrate on is the Huddersfield game on Saturday,” he said. “We’ll keep the focus on that.

“If we win that, then we can have a sit down and see where everyone else is in comparison to us. We’ve had a good week but we don’t want a good week. We want a good season.”

Leeds are currently 12 points adrift of the play offs, but they do hold a game in hand over many of the teams in the top six.

If Leeds are able to beat Huddersfield at the weekend then it will be the first time since 2009 that they have been victorious for four matches in a row.

Leeds good run of form started with a win over Cardiff City, before they also triumphed against Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers.

Over the last 10 seasons it has required an average of 73 points to make it into sixth place, and Leeds would have to finish the season very strongly to achieve this points total.
