Leeds United fell to yet another defeat in the Championship on Tuesday night, losing 1-0 away to Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.
Questions were already being asked about Marcelo Bielsa’s team in recent weeks, but will only intensify following a loss against a side who prior to their meeting on Tuesday had lost seven games on the bounce, not winning since Boxing Day.
Boxing Day was ironically the day when Leeds’ winning run was extended to seven matches in the Championship, but have since seen their form plummet in comparison.
Leeds have since played 11 games in all competitions, losing six and have managed just four wins in the last two months. Some of those results could prove to be particularly costly come the end of the season.
Losing 3-1 to Norwich City at the beginning of February has given the Canaries the advantage and momentum in the title race heading into the closing week of the season. They have also tasted defeat against promotion hopefuls in Hull and Nottingham Forest, as well as mid-table sides in Stoke City and QPR.
During the first half of the season it seemed as if it was an inevitability that Leeds would win promotion back to the Premier League, but other contenders have had other ideas in the last few months.
