Darren Huckerby and Ian Harte have been discussing on Twitter whether Leeds will return to the Premier League

Following a draw for Sheffield United last night, the second automatic promotion spot is Leeds’ to lose.

It was another exciting night of Championship football last night, as Leeds United edged closer to a top-flight return.

The Whites weren’t in action, although Sheffield United’s 1-1 draw at Birmingham ensured they stay in second.

Norwich City suffered last-gasp heartache at home to Reading. The Canaries conceded in the seventh minute of added time to draw 2-2.

Following the game former players, Ian Harte and Darren Huckerby were in very different moods.

Harte was a Leeds stalwart who played 288 games for the club. Huckerby spent a season at Elland Road, before becoming a Norwich hero, playing 174 times.

The two ex-players clearly have different loyalties, although in Huckerby’s case he will probably want to see both his former teams go up.

The pair were involved in a friendly exchange on Twitter after last night’s events:

 

Huckerby’s message that there is still a long way to go for Leeds is loud and clear. Anything can happen at this stage of the season and more twists and turns are expected.

Norwich should still complete their automatic promotion mission, but Marcelo Bielsa’s men must still put the work in.

Harte claims that no Leeds fans have any nails left and that is accurate. With five games of the campaign left, it is now in the Whites’ hands, however.

Leeds have waited a long time to return to the Premier League and clearly, Harte is desperate to see his former club back in the big time.
