Zola's Watford Cut Leeds Adrift Of Playoffs
And then there are six. Suddenly, there is a break away pack at the top. Nottingham Forest and Millwall are trying to keep the peleton in touch, but as the race goes in to the mountains, the stronger teams are beginning to stretch out the field.
Leeds now need to win two games whilst a team from the top six loses two just to climb into a playoff place. And with the worst goal difference outside of the bottom nine, Old Big Gob's team are in an even weaker position than the table suggests. It's true that a team invariably makes a charge from the chasing pack in the Championship, but Blackburn and Bolton look better equipped to do that than Warnock's team. Unless GFH Capital put some money where their mouth is!
Zola, meanwhile, is making me eat my words - and despite Duxbury's and Nani's presence at Vicarage Road, long may it continue. The win at Brighton was excellent and a fitting reward for Zola's positive attitude - something Warnock could learn from!
