When can Leeds get promoted to the Premier League – how many points do Leeds need? | Football | Sport


Leeds have been in fine form this season as the Championship season reaches the business end. The club moved move a step closer to securing promotion following the late win over Swansea at the weekend.

A 1-0 victory over the Welsh side gave Marcelo Bielsa’s men a three-point in the second-tier Championship table with three games remaining.

“The match was very close, a few chances,” Biesla said after the game.

“When the match progressed our possibilities were growing.

“The last 30 minutes we deserved to score and get the difference we got at the end.”

When can Leeds get promoted?

Leeds could secure promotion to the Premier League on Thursday night.

If Brentford fail to beat Preston North End, the Whites will seal automatic promotion with victory over bottom-club Barnsley.

Following Pablo Hernandez’s later winner at the weekend, Bielsa added: “What we feel is we are more relaxed, more light, because we are giving the steps that we had to.

“Of course, when you score at the end of the match it’s a higher feeling, emotion.

“I cannot enjoy this, what you feel is that you are giving a step forward.

“The only thing I can enjoy is the last objective if we get it.”

Leeds have received an injury boost ahead of the clash with Barnsley.

Kalvin Phillips wore heavy strapping around his knee in the win over Swansea, raising some doubts over his fitness.

But Bielsa expects the midfielder to be ready for Thursday’s game at Elland Road.

“Yes, we think he will be able [to play] on Thursday,” said Bielsa.

“We have four more days yet, so we have time to verify and analyse the situation.”
