Leeds back on loan (again)

Leeds back on loan (again)

So Leeds will slum it with us lesser league one sides next season, good news for a bumper home crowd again, but in truth no one could have argued if there season had ended in promotion. It has been a tremendous effort to come back from a 15 point deduction no matter what you think about the reasoning behind the penalty.

So thoughts turn to next season and with there finances and backing Leeds will be strong contenders for the Championship as will Leicester City unless they under estimate the size of the task ahead....just as Nottingham Forest how easy it is to get out of this league!!!, of course there will be other runners and riders some predicted and some suprise packages but both MK Dons and Peterborough have the financial backing to be contenders as do Oldham.

It will be hard for us to get up next season.

The day however belongs to Doncaster Rovers, well done Donny, and a special well done to ex saddler Richard OKelly who is now assistant manager at the Keepmoat.
