Video - Leeds fans on promotion chances

Leeds United have not been serious contenders for promotion to the Premier League for years. Could things be different this season ?

Leeds United fans are divided about whether they can challenge for promotion this season, but the overall tone is fairly positive.

Following the turbulent regime thus far under owner Massimo Cellino, Whites supporters have been hesitant to commit to top-flight predictions, but are slightly more optimistic with Garry Monk in charge.

Some Leeds fans say that the play-offs are attainable ‘with a bit of luck’, while others claim that if the club acquires a striker, then they will ‘be there or thereabouts’ come the end of the campaign.

Monk has been hailed for his purchases of Kyle Bartley and Pontus Jansson, which has ‘steadied the ship’ for the former Champions League semi-finalists.

A late goal from Shaun MacDonald denied Leeds all three points at Elland Road on Tuesday night, but the club have the opportunity to make amends on Saturday with a trip to Molineux to face 17th-placed Wolves.
