Watford's Sixth Place Still Realistic Target For Leeds
Leeds United came down to earth with a bump yesterday, losing to a very average Derby County team but with Watford losing at home to Hull and Leicester drawing against Barnsley, all is not lost for Warnock's boys. Amazingly, despite having lost as many games as they have won - showing classic mid table form - Leeds are still only 4 points off a play off place.
That shows what a mediocre division this is! Leeds fans were convinced that Zola's Watford were something special after the 6-1 pounding at Elland Road, but it seems the Hornets only sting intermittently. Hull, on the other hand, are looking a decent team under Steve Bruce and, along with Boro and Cardiff could be forming a group that pulls away at the top of the table. Palace's charge has stuttered and I expect them to slip back in the coming months despite Ollie.
So, if Warnock invests the oil money wisely in January, Leeds may yet have a back door route to the Prem courtesy of the mediocre nature of this division. That said, Wolves, Blackburn and Bolton are likely to come on stronger over the second half of the season. It should be interesting!
