Exclusive: Dean Ashton assesses Leeds United’s top two chances



Leeds United are looking good at the moment with them now back in the top two of the Sky Bet Championship.

The Whites were quick to respond to their loss to QPR with an emphatic win against West Brom and they now have their promotion hopes back in their hands after the draw in the Steel City derby.

What does Dean Ashton make of their chances, though, we spoke to the EFL on Quest pundit exclusively…

“I wouldn’t say they are favourites for the top two just yet because¬†Sheffield United and Norwich haven’t shown any particular weaknesses but you feel as though those three are going to be hard to stop for those below them.

“I felt the win showed Leeds’ fitness levels and answered some of the questions about Bielsa’s training regime because they were excellent.

“He named the same side as the one that lost to QPR as well and I think sometimes that is the right tactic to use because it puts the pressure back on the players and asks them to go out in front of your own fans and put on a performance.

“The only worry I would have for them at the moment is that Kemar Roofe is out with injury. He was out of form before getting sidelined and that is a worry. Norwich have Teemu Pukki and Sheffield United have Billy Sharp and their goals can be hard to keep with.

“I was mightily impressed with them against West Brom though.”
