Riot: he said. “I never give up hope in this league” Kieran McKenna brutally warned by a top manager” ahead of Hull City fixture…

Given the insane results that need to happen before May 5, Leeds United would still be in the running for automatic promotion even if they lost on Monday night. Daniel Farke believes that mistakes could still be made by Leicester City and Ipswich Town before this race is held.

Leeds gained three points at Riverside Stadium and returned to the top two, with the opportunity to increase their lead over Ipswich to four points on Friday. The way the league table seemed before 8 p.m. on Monday, it seemed like the Whites needed to win to establish themselves following one win in their previous five games.

Farke disagreed, though, when asked if a loss or draw would have ended their chances of finishing in the top two. He still believes that before 2:30 p.m. on May 4, their closest competitors could lose by a small margin in unexpected games.

“It was an important game,” he said. “I never give up hope in this league, but also in football. As long as there is a chance with a few games to go, I will always go for it.

“I wouldn’t have said the chase for automatic promotion would have been over because this league is unpredictable and sometimes there are crazy results, but the three points are massive for us.

“Without them, it would be much more difficult to put pressure on the top two, so it was important. We’re back in the top two and it was important we won.”

Ipswich must watch Leeds play again at Queens Park Rangers on Friday night before travelling to play-off chasing Hull City at 8pm on Saturday. The Tractor Boys then take their second game in hand next Tuesday, at FA Cup semi-finalists Coventry City.

On the final day, Leeds host Southampton, Leicester host Blackburn Rovers and Ipswich host Huddersfield Town
