By Harvey Byrne
Assistant manager Pep Clotet has told fans on Twitter that the Leeds staff are preparing “every detail” for Friday’s match against Newcastle.
The Yorkshire giants are currently preparing to face the Magpies at St James’ Park in the Good Friday Championship encounter.
It is a clash which sees fifth take on second in the league with 12 points currently separating the two sides in England’s second tier.
The match is considered a must win for both teams at this late stage of the season and Clotet shared on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon that the team were preparing each detail for a “tough away trip” that they must be ready for.

However, fans will now be disappointed if the club doesn’t achieve a top six finish in an attempt to end their 13-year wait for top-flight football.
Meanwhile, Newcastle are on course for an instant return to the Premier League as they sit in second place and 10 points above Huddersfield in third with five matches left.
But, they have won just two of their last six league matches and Leeds may see the stuttering Magpies as there for the taking.
