Leeds United fans on Twitter have provided a mixed reaction to Norwich City beating Hull City 3-2 in the Championship on Wednesday night. 

Daniel Farke's side, who had lost top spot to the Yorkshire club the night before, reclaimed first place with Marco Stiepermann opening the scoring and Emi Buendia netting a brace. 

As a result of those three points, they are now on 75 points, two points ahead of the Whites, with third-placed Sheffield United sitting on 71 points. 

 

There is no doubt that the race for the Premier League is going to go to the wire with nine games of the season remaining in what is set to an eventful last few months of the campaign.

Nonetheless, one Leeds fan couldn't understand how Norwich keep winning because he feels that their defending is 'shocking', while another supporter thinks that the Canaries have already claimed one of those automatic spots. 

Out of the top three teams, Norwich have the worst defence because they have conceded 47 goals, while Leeds have shipped 38 and Chris Wilder's men are the strongest out of the two with only 34 goals conceded. 

Here is a selection of Leeds fans on Twitter reacting to Norwich's win: 

At the weekend, Leeds will welcome Sheffield United to Elland Road in what is expected to be one of the biggest games of the season. 

Three points for the home team could provide them with the cushion they desperately need to earn promotion via the automatic places, but a loss and everything could open up once again.
