Ezgjan Alioski is convinced that Leeds United will finish top of the Championship this season.

The Montenegro attacking midfielder believes the Yorkshire giants have a “big team” and are capable of keeping their place at the league summit.

Asked during an interview on Friday afternoon if Leeds can stay top, as quoted by the personal Twitter account of Yorkshire Evening Post correspondent Lee Sobot, Alioski replied “of course” as he has seen such encouraging signs during his first two months at the club.
