Leeds United boss Steve Evans admits that finishing in the top ten would be a proud moment for him, but has warned that a lot of things can still happen this season.

Since missing out on the playoffs narrowly in their first season back in the Championship in 2010/11, Leeds have not managed a top ten finish and finished 15th in the last two seasons.

However, the Whites have climbed up to 13th in the league table on the back of three wins on trot in the last couple of weeks and are harbouring genuine hopes of a top ten berth this term.

While Evans admits that such a high finish would make him proud, he is not counting his chickens yet as he is aware of the Championship’s volatile nature and feels a lot could still happen this season.

When asked would he feel proud if Leeds manage a high finish this season, the Scot said on LUTV: “We have to achieve it first.  


“There is a lot of work to be done, a lot of teams above us in the league we like to climb over, and there are a lot of teams below trying to get where we are.

“So if we finish higher, it will make me very proud, but I believe in the Championship when you think you are arriving, you are swatted right back to your bed.”

A win tomorrow against Huddersfield would push Leeds closer towards the top ten, and they still have a game in hand over tenth placed Preston North End, who are on 52 points at the moment.
