Steve Evans explains how many players Leeds need to be play-off contenders next season

Leeds United and Reading go head-to-head this weekend.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has been speaking to LUTV ahead of his side’s Championship clash with Reading on Saturday.

The Whites will be buzzing after their 2-1 win against Birmingham City last time out, especially considering they followed up their brilliant team performance against Burnley with another bright outing – this time securing the three points in the process.

After those two games there is little doubt Leeds can be challenging for the play-offs next season with the right additions, and Evans has explained exactly how many new players he feels he needs in the summer to ensure that is the case.

The Leeds boss said his squad was “three or four” players short of challenging for the top six and provided he remains at Elland Road, it will be up to owner Massimo Cellino to support him when it comes to potential incomings.

After all, Evans has impressed with his previous business – both permanently and on loan – and this summer could define his legacy at the club.
