Will Leeds win all of their remaining Championship games?
Before the current season was temporarily suspended due to the impact of the viral outbreak back in March, Marcelo Bielsa’s side were on a tremendous run of form, having won their previous five league matches, resulting in them landing at of the Championship table on 71 points (per BBC Sport).
Next season in the prem starts 3 weeks later ?

It’s good for these Leeds fans that they know more details about when their season in the Championship will resume once again.
The best thing Leeds fans can hope for now is that their team win promotion back to the English top flight as quickly as possible and see the season out in style.
