Eddie Gray highlights biggest disappointment of Leeds United’s season

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United have endured yet another disappointing season in the Championship.

Eddie Gray suggested on The Noel Whelan Show on BBC Radio Leeds on Friday evening (broadcast from 6pm, May 6) that Leeds United need to improve their home form next season.

The Leeds legend has been left disappointed with the Whites’ performances and form at Elland Road this campaign.

“I think that has been the biggest disappointment, the home form,” said Gray on The Noel Whelan Show on BBC Radio Leeds on Friday evening (broadcast from 6pm, May 6).

“I mean, if you are going to challenge to win divisions, get promotions, you are going to do it on your home form, and overall the home form has just not been good enough.”

Leeds have been able to win just seven of their 23 Championship matches at Elland Road this season, drawing eight and losing eight.

In contrast, Burnley, who have won promotion to the Premier League as Championship winners, have picked up 15 victories at Turf Moor.

Middlesbrough, who have finished second in the table and have also been automatically promoted, have won 16 matches at the Riverside Stadium.

Elland Road is one of the best stadiums in England and the fans are loud, and Leeds should be looking to take advantage of this next season.

The West Yorkshire outfit will not be aiming for a top-two finish in the Championship during the 2016-17 campaign, but they should be targeting a spot in the playoffs.
