Leeds fans react to Aston Villa securing a seventh win in eight games
By Harry Sykes
Leeds fans on Twitter are worried that Aston Villa could make a late promotion charge after they secured a seventh win in eight matches on Tuesday night.
Steve Bruce’s side are the Championship’s in-form team and kept their faint play-off hopes alive with a 1-0 win against QPR at Villa Park on Tuesday night.
It was a fourth consecutive triumph for the expensively-assembled Villa team, who are starting to gel following their expensive January overhaul.
This has created fresh tension among the better placed promotion hopefuls, including Leeds, who suffered a 2-0 defeat at Brentford on Tuesday night.
It was a second consecutive league loss for Garry Monk’s side, who remain in fifth position and five points clear of Fulham in seventh.

I know Villa are 9 points off 6th, but I don’t want to play them in the play offs. They have a good team that is gelling well now. #lufc

Kodjia has been the driving force behind the renaissance of Bruce’s team that has given their long-suffering fans hope of a late promotion surge.
Villa are 11th in the league and have narrowed the gap on Sheffield Wednesday in the final play-off position to nine points.
