THE YEP jury give their verdict from the stands after Leeds United’s 1-0 win against Burnley.

In a high-tempered, fast paced game, Leeds were dominant and had numerous chances to improve their goal difference. However, despite a fine finish from Ross McCormack, Leeds could not finish some excellent passing and build up play. This is the best performance we’ve seen in a few weeks, unfortunately, with Forest winning later on, it came a little too late in the season. The atmosphere was awesome.

The final home game of the season proved not to be a dissapointment. We really needed a comprehensive result to boost our goal difference but is wasn’t our day.
Overall it was a much better performance with the lads putting in a lot of effort.
But with results not going our way it seems inevitable that we will be playing Championship football once again next season.

A Ross McCormack goal ended Leeds United’s campaign with a 1-0 victory but with Forest’s 5-1 demolition of struggling Scunthorpe at the City Ground the play-off dream would require a mathematical miracle.
I have been calling for McCormack’s inclusion for the last few weeks and I hope he’ll get a decent run in the side at the start of next season.

Leeds ended their home campaign with a convincing victory to remain unbeaten at Elland Road since losing to Cardiff in October. However, the result at Forest leaves United bemoaning miserable displays on the road in recent weeks which derailed our play-off ambitions. The performance of McCormack in a front two questioned the manager’s reluctance to use that formation and personnel more frequently.

The Whites set off at an excellent pace before Ross McCormack opened his United account. The second half saw more of the same with O’Brien, and Sanchez Watt failing to capitalise on United’s supremacy and this could now prove fatal as United not only need to win and hope Forest lose but also require a mammoth six-goal swing.
At least the Whites finish the season in their rightful position as Yorkshire’s number one!
