Leeds United fans on Twitter are praying that their poor run of results on Easter Monday can come to an end against Brentford.
The Whites’ promotion chances took a huge hit on Good Friday and they now sit two points off the pace in the race for the top two, with only three games left of the season.
A win on Easter Monday could potentially see their hopes resurrected but their recent record on this day shows that their chances of a win are unlikely.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side have apparently lost nine of their last 10 league games on Easter Monday, and are currently on a run of six consecutive losses on this date.
#LUFC have lost 9 of their past 10 league matches played on Easter Monday (W1 D0 L9), losing each of the last 6 in a row ?♂️

If this poor run is extended, then Leeds’ push for automatic promotion could be all but over so it’s no surprise fans are hoping that the bad luck will end this time.
Wigan finally ended Leeds’ impressive winning streak after scoring first in Championship fixtures and fans of the Yorkshire club are now hoping that they can break another trend for the second time in just three days – albeit with significantly contrasting consequences for their promotion dream.
Here’s what Leeds fans have been saying about the record on Twitter…
Time for a change then.

Well we’ve broken enough runs the wrong way round,.. QPRs form, Wigan’s away form etc Might as well break a run the right way around!
