Phil Hay has revealed that Leeds United are cracking on and working towards the Championship’s resume date of June 20th, despite chaos flooding around the division and others questioning the restart.
Leeds sit top of the Championship table and have been back in Thorp Arch for over a week now, stepping up their preparation with a return to contact training.
The resume date of June 20th has been met positively by those at Elland Road and, according to Phil Hay, it is just business as usual at Thorp Arch, with the Whites working towards their remaining nine fixtures of the season.

However, around the Championship there are clubs voicing concern around that resume date, with Queens Park Rangers at the forefront of that, releasing a statement slamming the governing bodies.
Nine games remain in the Championship this season, with Leeds and QPR still having plenty to play for.
Leeds are looking to cash-in on a table topping position by winning automatic promotion, whilst the R’s have an outside shot of reaching the play-offs and sit just six points outside the top-six.
In the remaining nine games, the pair don’t have to face each other, but QPR do have to face Leeds’ title rivals, West Brom.
Leeds have got their heads down and are just focusing on the task at hand, which is admirable.
They could lean heavily on curtailing the season and winning promotion on sporting merit, but they aren’t kicking up a fuss like their rivals.
That focus is evident and it should serve them well when the games eventually start again.
