Watford 1 Leeds United 2: McDermott looks towards next season

Have your say

Brian McDermott says he expects to mount a promotion challenge next term after Leeds United made a winning end to another difficult season.

Ross McCormack’s lob condemned Watford to a 2-1 defeat and a play-off semi-final against Leicester.

“It was an amazing game,” said McDermott. “Obviously we knew what was going on at Hull but we did what we had to do. I had a feeling Ross McCormack would make a difference today.

“Gianfranco is a friend of mine and I feel for him but during the game you have to do what you have to do.

“He’s a top person who has done a fantastic job, and they still have every chance of going up.”
