Lots of Leeds United fans have been discussing what is to come for Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites in the Elland Road outfit’s next six Championship fixtures.

United have 14 games remaining in our second-tier season as we strive to secure promotion into the Premier League, but only one of our remaining fixtures sees the club face another side currently vying for a top-flight berth.

Bielsa’s men have sometimes struggled to string out favourable results when facing sides lower down in the standings, having lost to mid-table Millwall and Queens Park Rangers plus the relegation-threatened Wigan Athletic and Charlton Athletic already this season.

Our upcoming schedule sees the Whites face two sides fighting the threat of relegation into League One in the form of Wednesday night’s trip to Middlesbrough and our clash with 23rd-placed Luton Town, coming a week after we host likely automatic promotion rivals Fulham at Elland Road.

We also have a trip to 17th-placed Hull City to come at the weekend, before hosting Huddersfield Town and travelling to Cardiff City – the side who caused us many issues in December by coming back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3.

How many points will we take over the next six games?

None

1-6

7-12

13-18

13-18

The Bluebirds result sparked the downturn in our form, having begun the game on the back of seven successive league wins to taking just four victories in the following 12 fixtures.

Another run like that would almost certainly spell the end to our hopes of automatic promotion into the Premier League, and perhaps see United even fall out of the Play-Off places.

Here are some of the messages shared as fans discussed what is to come for Bielsa’s Whites in our next six Championship fixtures…

In other Leeds United news, a former international has suggested deep-routed issues at Elland Road are hindering our promotion hopes.
