Speaking on Sky Sports’ Premier League Daily, Tony Gale has revealed he believes Leeds United will still make the Sky Bet Championship’s Play-Offs at the end of the season, at the expense of Sheffield Wednesday, reports Yorkshire Evening Post Journalist, Lee Sobot.
Leeds slipped out of the top-six for the first time since November on Monday, after suffering a 1-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Elland Road.
Despite their recent setback, Gale insists he still believes Leeds will qualify for the Play-Offs, at the expense of their Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday.
Gale also admitted he is certain Fulham will reach the Play-Offs.

There are just three fixtures of the campaign remaining, and should Leeds pick up nine-points, it will guarantee their place in the top-six, due to Fulham facing Sheffield Wednesday on the final day of the season.
Garry Monk’s side face Burton Albion on Saturday afternoon, before welcoming Norwich City to Elland Road and travelling to Wigan Athletic to complete the regular season.
