'Path to the promised land' – Leeds fans react as 18/19 Championship fixtures announced

Leeds United fans have found out their league fixtures for next season, and Marcelo Bielsa’s first campaign starts with one of the toughest tests of the lot.

They start with a plumb home tie against recently relegated Stoke City, who will be aiming to get straight back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Leeds United posted the season’s fixtures on its official Twitter page on Thursday morning.

You’ve got to play every team twice but it’s definitely a baptism of fire for Bielsa, with Stoke, followed by Derby, and then Swansea and Norwich in August, before a home tie against Middlesbrough.

However, the flip side is that if Leeds can get off to a fast start, their run-in looks good, as one fan pointed out.

He said if they were 10 points clear in April, they could coast home to the Premier League.
