A few months ago Leeds United appeared to be guaranteed at least a place in the play offs if not a slim chance of automatic promotion as Garry Monk’s side defied the odds to maintain a top five place.
The last few weeks have seen Leeds promotion ambitions take a severe blow with the weekend’s 2-1 loss to Burton Albion making it just one win in the past six games which has now seen them drop down to seventh, three points off sixth placed Fulham who also have much better goal difference.
With just two games left to play it’s not looking likely that Monk’s team will get the chance to challenge in the play offs, something that would have seemed unthinkable a few months ago.
Leeds cause hasn’t been helped by the fact Fulham have hit good form at just the right time, winning their last four games on the spin.
Here’s how Leeds fans on social media have been reacting to their play off chances slipping away:

As low as I feel about Leeds United today. Nothing beats being relegated to division 3 and being told to start the season – 15 points #LUFC
