Scary fate of Leeds United out of their hands, 'financial armageddon' must be used as weapon - David Prutton

David Prutton has admitted that Leeds United not having their own Premier League fate in their own hands is scary.

The Sky Sports pundit insisted that Burnley and Everton have pulled their finger out, and the Whites must do the exact same in their final four games.

Prutton did admit that they must use the “utter financial armageddon” currently facing Burnley should they go down as a weapon of motivation.

Writing in his latest column for the Yorkshire Evening Post, Prutton shared what the Whites must use in this moment.

“Leeds United’s survival fate is now out of their own hands which is the scary thing,” he warned.

“But right now what’s in front of them is a tough run of games whilst being surrounded by two teams that have somehow started to pull their finger out.

“Did anyone see Everton getting that result against Chelsea? Absolutely not, and it was a great turnaround by Burnley as well to win at Watford

“The more you read about the utter financial armageddon possibly linked with Burnley if they go out of the division is another motivational tool to use.”

One thing matters.

Jesse Marsch will only be concentrating on matters that are on the pitch, never mind anything happening off it.

These final four games are huge and will be the difference between Championship or Premier League football next season.

Starting tomorrow at Arsenal, you’d like to think that Leeds need two, if not three wins to get over the line for safety.

Of course, it isn’t ideal having the Gunners away and then Chelsea, but when our backs are against the wall, we come out swinging.

Brentford and Brighton have nothing left to fight for in their final two games, whereas Chelsea have an FA Cup final days after our meeting.

These are all things that could help, and all that matters right now is leaving everything on that pitch to get three points from every last one of our games.

Bring it on.
