Can Leeds clinch an automatic promotion spot in Championship run-in? 

Leeds United returned to winning ways this week as they saw off Stoke City 1-0 in Tuesday’s Championship home clash. 

Dan James scored the decisive goal as the Whites picked up their 23rd victory of the 2023-24 season. 

The Yorkshire outfit have seen a huge improvement in their performances after a difficult start to the new campaign, when they won just one of their first five league encounters. 

Daniel Farke’s men hit peak form in the new year as they claimed 10 victories from 11 matches to move third in the Championship, with just two points behind Ipswich Town. 

They are now set to face Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, with fans having the option to watch the Championship game live

Can Leeds clinch an automatic promotion spot in Championship run-in? 

The Whites have made a huge turnaround in 2024 to get back in contention for securing automatic promotion this season. 

Back-to-back losses in December made it look like they will not be able to catch Leicester City and Ipswich. 

But then the Yorkshire outfit went on a stunning nine-game winning run, which included their 3-1 success against Leicester last month. 

They are now one of the favourites to secure automatic promotion as the remaining Leeds fixtures are also very favourable for them.  

Daniel Farke’s side have already played the Foxes home and away, with the Yorkshire outfit emerging victorious on both occasions. 

They will not have to worry about Ipswich too as the two sides have met twice in the English second tier this campaign. 

The most tricky fixture remaining for Leeds will be against Southampton but that game will be at Elland Road.
