Leeds’ overall form since the international break in March is bound to see plenty of home supporters heading to the stadium tomorrow with nerves about the game ahead.

Progress at Wembley in favor of Leeds against Norwich

The goalless draw at Carrow Road was a solid result for Leeds despite a poor overall display, returning to the basics of defending well in possession.

With Elland Road likely to be loud and lively, you can imagine we are in a strong position to secure a place at Wembley.

However, anything can happen as our last home playoff meeting was in 2019 against Derby County, 2-0 on aggregate and cruising – you know the rest.
