Here's how the Championship table looks since Steve Evans took charge at Leeds United

Leeds United

Leeds United would be in 10th place in the Championship, if the season began when Steve Evans took over.

According to reports in the Daily Mail, Steve Evans is set to lose his job at Leeds United at the end of the season.

However, the Championship table since he took charge actually appears fairly encouraging.

Evans took over at Leeds from Uwe Rosler back in October, and at that stage the Whites were hovering just above the relegation zone.

Evans has consistently stated that his initial remit was to save the club from relegation, and he has successfully achieved that task.

Indeed, Leeds would be in 10th place right now if the season had started when Evans took over.

The Yorkshire side have collected 36 points from the 26 matches that Evans has taken charge of, putting them ahead of the likes of Queens Park Rangers and Birmingham City over that period of time.

Leeds would be eight points back from the play offs, and 13 points clear of the relegation zone if the season started when Evans was placed in charge at Elland Road. 

Leeds have won nine of the 26 league matches they have played since Evans took the job, and they have lost eight times.

Over the course of the whole season, Leeds are in 13th place in the Championship table.
