Leeds fans react on Twitter to play-off dates announcement

By Dominic Toner

The English Football League have announced the dates for the end of season play-offs – and Leeds fans have expressed their excitement on Twitter.

The EFL confirmed on their official website the full dates for the Championship, League One and League Two play-offs.

Garry Monk’s side are hoping to be involved in the drama and have a five-point cushion to protect over chasers Fulham.

The Whites are fifth-placed in the league table and have just five games remaining to clinch their place in the top six.

The Championship play-off semi-finals take place between 13 May – 17 May, with each side playing a home leg.

Leeds will be hoping they can progress to the final, which takes place on Monday 29 May and has a scheduled 3pm kick-off.

The Whites fans have responded to the dates announcement with anticipation and are praying their side are involved.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Leeds have been a part of the promotion race for the majority of the season and have fallen just short of the automatic positions.

However, they have a great chance of finishing in the play-off spot as they aim to return to the Premier League.

They would be joined by Huddersfield, Reading and Sheffield Wednesday as it stands, with Yorkshire well represented.

Monk’s side would face Reading if positions stay the same, meaning they could meet either rivals Huddersfield or Sheffield Wednesday at Wembley.
