'Absolute shocker' - Chris Kamara shares Leeds prediction in promotion race

Chris Kamara has no doubt that Leeds United will earn promotion to the Premier League this season.

The former Whites ace turned Sky pundit believes that Leeds and West Brom are the two most consistent sides in the Championship, and he would be surprised if they were to be caught.

Kamara believes that Leeds have started to gain some luck in their games recently and that could be the difference in the last few months.

Kamara does believe that there will be twists and turns before the end of the campaign, but that Leeds should have enough to get across the line.

“Without a doubt,” he told Leeds Live.

“In November and December they had an absolute shocker and yet they stayed in second place in the table.

“But if you look at their results since January and February and now this month, all of a sudden their form has picked up and they are starting to get results. The rub of the green is starting to go with them whereas last season it was fading away.

“West Brom and Leeds have been the most consistent. The one thing we do know about this division is anyone can beat anyone, but those two sides have been the most consistent. There might be one or two twists between now and the end of the season but I’d be surprised if those two fell away.”

After Saturday’s win at Hull was joined by West Brom losing to Wigan at home, Leeds are now the in-form side in the Championship and many pundits have placed them as favourites to go up.

Prediction expert Nate Silver shares that view after the latest fixtures. His website, FiveThirtyEight has revealed that the Whites now stand a 97% chance of being promoted to the top-flight – something we very much like the look of.

As Kamara said, there will be many twists and turns to go, but if Leeds can continue with a similar ruthlessness and strength at the back that they did at the KCOM for 10 games – we will be alright.
