Matt Grimes has claimed that Leeds can reach the play-offs this season, as they prepare for their Championship clash against Burton.
The Yorkshire giants will be looking to pick up their seventh Championship win of the season, as they sit three points off the top six.
Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds ahead of Saturday’s clash, on-loan midfielder Grimes revealed that Leeds are more than capable of finishing the season in the top six.
“We’re looking to focus on Saturday now,” Grimes said. “We’ve got a big couple of games coming up and we want to continue our good form in the league.
“We’ve really kicked on, and we’re looking to push for the playoffs. Regarding the EFL Cup, we’ll cross that bridge when it comes to it, but we’re focusing on the league.”
The midfielder has finally started to find some form at Elland Road, following a dismal start to life in Yorkshire following his loan move from Swansea in the summer.
His inch-perfect through ball set speed merchant Hadi Sacko free on the right flank, before the Frenchman supplied a low cross for top scorer Chris Wood to equalise in the 109th minute.
In the meantime, Grimes is expected to continue his rapid return to form against Burton on Saturday, with Monk looking to edge closer to the Championship elite.
Three points will see the Yorkshire giants move level on points with sixth placed Bristol City, as they set their sights on the play-offs.
