Monk delivers verdict on Leeds play-off chances after Wolves defeat
By Dominic Toner
Leeds manager Garry Monk has described the club’s chances of finishing in the play-offs as “very doable” following their defeat to Wolves on Monday.
The Yorkshire club lost 1-0 at home to Wolves and slipped out of the top six as a result.
They now have just one victory in their last five matches and their destiny is no longer in their own hands.
Wolves managed to produce a strong away performance and Nouha Dicko’s goal gave them the three points.
Leeds slipped to seventh in the table and trail sixth-placed Fulham on goal difference with just three games left.

Monk is confident that his side can still be involved in the end of season play-off drama, despite the major setback against Wolves on Easter Monday.
“We have three games left and nine points to play for and it is still very doable,” Monk said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Leeds fans will now be fearful that all their hard work this season could end up unrewarded, but Monk still feels they are in a great chance to compete for promotion.
The Whites have been in the promotion picture all campaign, but their form has dipped considerably at a crucial time.
They still have games against Burton, Norwich and Wigan ahead of them, when they will surely be targeting nine points.
