No team has earned fewer points in the Championship this season than Leeds United since boxing day and it’s a fact that has got a reaction from supporters.
Both the Whites and Burton Albion have earned just 12 points in that period – with the Brewers rock bottom of the league table.

While Paul Heckingbottom’s side are sitting in a much more comfortable position – 14th – had they not had such good form at the start of the season, they too could have been staring in the face of relegation.

Here is what Leeds fans had to say on Twitter about the staggering statistic:
