Leeds United lie on the brink of the Sky Bet Championship play-offs.
Level on points with sixth placed Fulham with three games left to play, the final spots in the playoff race are sure to go down to the wire.
Away games at relegation threatened Burton Albion and Wigan Athletic will be tricky, and a home tie against mid table Norwich will be no walk in the park.
If Garry Monk’s men are to secure a top six finish, they will have to be at their very best over the coming weeks.
A number of players have performed extremely well this year including PFA Championship Team of the Year inductee Chris Wood, who leads the league’s goal scoring charts, and defender Pontus Jansson, whose performances have seen him linked with a move to Premier League Southampton.
If the season were to end today, Garry Monk’s side would unfortunately be resigned to another season of second tier football. The Yorkshire club have been out of the top flight for 13 years, and this season is the first for many years in which Leeds have flirted with promotion.
Due to Leeds current league position, we will take a look at two players that Monk should target if his side remain in the Championship, and will need to mount another promotion push next year.
