Famous actor and Leeds United fan Russell Crowe has urged Leeds to take the rest of the season one game at a time in a response to a fan on Twitter.

Leeds United fan Anthony Devaney asked Russell Crowe whether he thinks Leeds will be able to nick an automatic promotion spot after their 2-0 win over second placed Brighton closed the gap to just eight points between the two sides.

With just eight games remaining, the likelihood of Leeds finishing in the top two remains unlikely but it is still possible.

Crowe was measured in his response and refused to get carried away.

The New Zealander said:

“The only thing we have to do now is focus on getting the win away this week… one game at a time”.

Leeds face a tricky away tie against fellow promotion hopefuls Reading after the international break before another away clash with Brentford.

Leeds fans – what do you make of Russell Crowe’s comments? Is he right? Can you get automatic promotion? Let us know in the comments below…
