Neil Warnock is refusing to give up on reaching the end of season play-offs in the championship and he says it is not over until the fat lady sings.
Leeds are currently in tenth place, five points behind the teams currently occupying fourth, fifth and sixth in the table.
Warnock believes the five-point gap with just nine games remaining is a big gap to close but a couple of wins could get them right back in the mix.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, “Five points at this stage is quite a big gap but look at the position we have been in and the games we have had.
“There is no reason why we cannot get results if we get things going our way.
“Two or three good results and you are right back in it again. If we had won on Saturday, we would have been three points behind.
“It`s not over until the fat lady sings.”
Warnock has faced a tough baptism as Leeds manager with four of his five games coming against sides currently above them in the table.
Leeds won one, drew two and lost one of the four games against Southampton, Hull City, Middlesbrough and West Ham.
Leeds picked up just one point from their two games against Southampton and West Ham but could quite easily have picked up maximum points having played Southampton off the park in a 1-0 defeat and being denied by West Ham with a last minute equaliser in a 1-1 draw last Saturday.
Five of Leeds next six games, four of them at Elland Road, come against sides currently below them in the championship table
Leeds will be looking to pick up a minimum of fifteen points from a possible eighteen to have a realistic chance of the play-offs.
The last three games are once again against sides who will be vying for a play-off place along with Leeds. They face trips to Blackpool and Cardiff City before finishing the season at Elland Road against a resurgent Leicester City who will still be thinking they can make a late push for the play-offs.
