You know the phrase ‘politics makes for strange bedfellows’?

Well, we appear to be entering the stage of the season where football matches are making for strange bedfellows as well. After Leeds United’s loss to QPR on Saturday, Leeds United’s place at the top of the table isn’t looking quite as safe as it was a couple of weeks ago.

Now they find themselves desperately hoping that other teams can start doing them favours. And that’s exactly what happened last night as Stoke City defeated second-placed West Brom to keep the battle for top spot wide open rather than let the Baggies start to open up a gap.

And the Leeds United fans were left delirious when the full-time whistle went, delighted that the Potters were able to do them a favour.

I wouldn’t get too excited though, if a team near the bottom of the table can beat one near the top, then it just means Leeds are going to have to be extra careful between now and the end of the season, anyone really can beat anyone. We know that all too well.

Will Leeds finish top?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Now let’s just hope that they aren’t as much of a challenge when we play them towards the end of the season.
