Kevin Campbell fears for Leeds United, final games a 'nightmare'

Leeds United may not pick up any more points for the remainder of the Premier League season due to their ‘nightmare’ run in, says Kevin Campbell.

The Whites take on Chelsea tonight before games against Brighton and Brentford to close out the season, while they currently sit in the relegation zone on goal difference behind Burnley.

But ahead of the clash at Elland Road against Chelsea, Campbell told talkSPORT [May 11, 9:38am] he fears for the club’s Premier League future.

“I’ll be honest with you, I really fear for Leeds,” he said. “I really do. I saw them, I was covering the game on Sunday, and they didn’t start great.

“Gave themselves a bit of a chance with ten men because they had nothing to lose, but I think the next three games are a nightmare because they’ve got Chelsea tonight, Brighton at the weekend and then the last game of the season is away at Brentford. Going to Brentford is such a difficult place to go, they’re flying at the moment.

“So I think it’s going to be difficult for them to pick anything up. Their main players, a lot of the spine of that team are not fit, they’re not there. So you’re relying on players who, it’s all going to be new to them. So I think it’s going to be real difficult for Leeds.”

This is really scary times for a Leeds fan, with relegation really looming after at one point looking like they were out of trouble.

But the insanely difficult run-in mixed with the suddenly brilliant form of Burnley and Everton means they’re in real danger.

Their safety is no longer in their own hands and they’re relying on one of the other clubs to drop points so they have an opportunity to take advantage, but even then it will be difficult for them to secure their own results.

Jesse Marsch needs to get the team pulling in the right direction and start hoping for improved performances or they will all be playing in the Championship next season.

With so many key players out of the final games too it just adds an even greater degree of difficulty to the task, but they must believe in themselves and hope that someone steps to the fore to take the task on and deliver.
