Loads of Leeds United fans have been reacting on social media after LUFC Data laid bare our collapse in the Championship title race.

Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites lost for the eighth time this league season when beaten 2-0 at Nottingham Forest on Saturday, when goals from Sammy Ameobi and Tyler Walker saw the City Ground natives pull within a point of the automatic promotion places.

United had held an eleven-point lead over the Play-Off places in December following a seven-game win streak, but have since claimed a measly nine points from ten games to now be within touching distance for Forest.

At the close of our winning streak, LUFC Data have noted that we were averaging 2.1 points per game in the second-tier on route to our 46 point haul. However, since allowing Cardiff City to come back from 3-0 down to salvage a draw, the Whites have taken just 0.9 points per game.

Is automatic promotion still possible?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The dramatic fall-off in production has alarmed some of the Elland Road faithful, who now seriously fear for our promotion chances – especially with a trip to Brentford to come on Tuesday night.

We have not won at Griffin Park since August 1950 in the old Division Two, with seven defeats in our last ten visits to the Greater London outfit.

Here are some of the messages shared as fans reacted to our points per game average before and after the 3-3 draw with Cardiff, highlighting just how much our promotion bid has collapsed in recent weeks…

In other Leeds United news, the club do not envisage a 7-cap man playing another game for the Whites.
