Paul Lambert has had his say on where he thinks Leeds United will finish this season, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
Lambert’s Wolverhampton Wanderers side won 1-0 at Elland Road on Easter Monday, meaning Leeds fell out of the play-off positions and into seventh place. However, Lambert has revealed that he thinks Leeds will still get a play-off place this year, despite their loss this week.
Lambert said: “I think it’s really tight to call. I think they are well in the mix, really in the mix, and without knowing their run in – to come here and get results is really difficult with the crowd that it has got behind it. It could go right to the wire.
“If you asked me do I think they can still do it? Absolutely they still get in it. And then once you are in the play-offs then you roll the dice really and hopefully you get through it. They are not out of it. Okay, we have put a dent in it, not derailed it, but I am pretty sure that Garry is experienced enough to get them back on it.”
Leeds’ defeat at home to Wolves came as a shock to most, especially as the club had just picked up an impressive point at Newcastle United on days earlier. Leeds travel to Burton Albion this weekend and will be looking to regain their spot in the play-off places as the season comes to an end.
Leeds are currently seventh, but are level on points with Fulham in sixth place. The club are also only two points behind Sheffield Wednesday, meaning that they could end the weekend as high as fifth if other results go their way.
