Town boss looking for Blues to maintain recent good form against a Leeds side that he believes can still make a push for the top six

Town boss Mick McCarthy is refusing to rule Leeds out of contention for a top six finish this season, after seeing the Whites turn around their fortunes under Steve Evans in recent weeks.

The Blues currently occupy the final Play-Off position and welcome Leeds to Portman Road this evening, looking to extend the recent good form.

Despite their 13th position, the Town boss still feels that the Elland Road club could make a push for the end of season Play-Offs.  

“It will be another tough game, certainly,” Mick told the official Club website. 

“They had a good result against Rotherham in the FA Cup on Saturday and are unbeaten for a while. I have watched them two or three times and they are definitely moving in the right direction.

“There has been a big improvement there - they have spent some money as well - and have built up a bit of momentum. Certainly things seemed to have settled down there and there is talk of the Play-Offs becoming a target for them.

“Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday and there are other clubs outside the top six that look like they are investing and are capable of pushing for those Play-Off places. I’m sure it will be another year when it will go to right to the wire.

“We’re in those Play-Off places at the moment and I said at the start of the season that the target every year is to continue to progress.

“We’re more stable as a team, as a Club and when I speak to fans, the impression I get is that they are a lot happier with where we are now than four or five years ago.”
