It gets better and better for the Whites. The fightback against Middlesbrough was hugely important, and with so many results breaking in their favour, Leeds are suddenly in with a real promotion shout.
To stay in the mix, however, the away form has to be sorted out. The charge up the table has been coutesy of four home wins on the bounce and that away win in the derby game at Huddersfield. That result against Grayson's team was the exception that proved the rule, however, as defeats at Derby, Millwall and Burnley have shown.
Lose at Forest and Hull over the next seven days and all the recent good work will be undone. Leeds fans should enjoy their Christmas dinner, happy with the takeover and the home form, but this is no time for complacency: Forest would leapfrog Leeds should they win the Boxing Day game and Hull are already nine points clear of Old Big Gob's team.
An interesting week could see Leeds slip back or confirm themselves as contenders for outright promotion, never mind for the playoffs!
