Leeds United fans are praying that Preston will do them a favour on Wednesday night as they travel to West London to play Brentford.
Leeds could go into their game against Barnsley on Thursday knowing that a win could be enough to secure their automatic promotion to the Premier League.
Before the Yorkshire derby at Elland Road, Griffin Park plays host to Brentford versus Preston.
If Brentford lost that game then one point against the Tykes would be enough for Marcelo Bielsa’s men to ensure that a capital ‘P’ will appear next to their name in the Championship standings.
West Brom’s draw with Fulham on Tuesday was pretty much the perfect result for Leeds to not only go and win promotion but also take the Championship title too.
Before we get carried away, let’s hope that Preston can do us a favour on Wednesday – and that is what loads of Leeds fans are saying about Alex Neil’s side ahead of the action in West London.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
All eyes on Preston tonight 👀 do us a favour, please! #lufc

Preston have a lot to play for themselves against Brentford as they could still secure a top-six finish and qualify for the play-offs.
The Deepdale club have a fairly poor record against the Bees though, losing nine of their last 14 meetings with them and winning just three times.
It doesn’t seem great considering that Brentford’s form is perfect since the season restarted but form could go out the window when the pressure is as high as it is.
Come on Preston.
