Before the start of the season many Leeds United fans would have been happy to be sitting level on points with sixth place in the Championship with three games left to play.
That was before they’d seen their side spend much of the season in the top six though and it’s been tough to take for many fans to finally watch Leeds slip out of the top six.
The recent loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers, coupled with Fulham’s defeat of Aston Villa now means Garry Monk’s side have a difficult task ahead of them if they’re to keep their promotion hopes alive.
To be fair to Leeds fans though, rather than criticise the manager at this crucial stage of the season, they’ve more or less rallied round him as he bids to take the team to the top tier of English football.
Fans on social media have been sharing their thoughts on Garry Monk following the recent defeat:
No excuses today, but play-off bid is still in our hands. I’m 100% confident these players will give everything in the final 3 games. #MOT
