“Not much better than that” - how the national press reacted to the grand victory of Leeds United

After the exciting first half of the season in the Championship, all attention is focused on 2020, which begins with fierce battles at the second level of England.

Leeds United and West Brom are fighting for the title and automatic promotion to the Premier League, but underneath is a very tight patch for the playoff spot to secure a final spot in the next season’s top flight.

Meanwhile, a fierce fight is also underway at the bottom of the table to avoid relegation, involving Luton Town, Barnsley, Wigan, Charlton and Stoke City.

Now The Pools has shown that the last chances accurately show what bookmakers expect in the second half of the campaign.

It is not surprising that it was Leeds United and West Brom that were the favorites to capture the return to higher flight, the first to finish in front of Baggy to raise the title, and it was Brentford who was considered the most likely to join them. ,
