There is only one word on the lips of many Leeds United fans in recent times and that is promotion.

The coronavirus pandemic has put a temporary block in the way of the Whites and their bid for Premier League football this season, although there has been a determination to finish the Championship campaign.

Reports have suggested that League One and Two could both be cancelled this season, and that promotion and relegation could be solved on a weighted points-per-game method.

That takes into account how many games each side has won home and away and then calculates their end total according to how many home and away games they have left.

Now, the season-ending in the Championship could initially sound like a nightmare for Leeds, but with this method things work out really well for Leeds.

In fact, if the weighted PPG method was used in the second-tier, Leeds would finish top of the league and would be promoted as champions this season.

West Brom would finish second and if there were no playoffs this season, Fulham would join the two in being automatically promoted to the Championship.

The Yorkshire Evening Post revealed that Leeds would finish on 88.46 points this season, nearly two more points more than the Baggies.

Before all of this, Leeds were strongly against the idea of the season being cancelled and legal action could have been threatened by the Whites.

But, if the League One and Two seasons were decided by the PPG method, Leeds would be keeping a close eye on that knowing that they would be named as champions should that happen in the Championship.
