A four-game unbeaten run in the Premier League under new boss Marsch has seen Leeds build an eight point cushion above the drop zone.


At present, Everton, Burnley, Watford and Norwich are the four teams below the Whites, who have six games left to secure survival and ensure a third season of top flight football on the bounce.



Former Leeds defender Dorigo admits that Leeds are yet to be completely out of the woods, but stressed that teams below them have to produce results that they have not managed so far this season to really threaten their safety.


Dorigo added that Leeds are currently in a stronger position and are on course to avoid slipping down to the Championship, while fellow relegation candidates are facing more difficulty to stay up as the games run out.



“Looking at the way the Premier League table is shaping up during our break from fixtures, the picture is getting better and better for Leeds United”, Dorigo wrote in his Yorkshire Evening Post column.


“There is, of course, still some work to be done but you’d have to say that teams below them are going to have to produce something pretty special, something they’ve not produced at all this season, to get near.



“That’s not to say it can’t happen but it’s becoming more and more difficult for those teams because games are running out and we’re looking in a stronger position.”


Leeds are currently working hard on the training pitch as they continue their extended break and will return to action on Monday against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
