Bielsa sets Leeds promotion challenge
Marcelo Bielsa has told his players they need to win their last five matches of the season if they want to go up.
Following the midweek round of matches in the Championship, Leeds - who beat Preston 2-0 on Tuesday - again find themselves with their own destiny in their hands and five wins would ensure they are promoted via the top two.
Bielsa, who says he did not watch Sheffield United's game at Birmingham on Wednesday, that ended 1-1, said: "We have to win the five games left. When you have few points left to win because you're in the last few games of the league, the gap or the space for mistakes reduces. Anything can happen in one football game.
"Any of the results of our opponents could make us play more freely or play with more responsibility but with any result they (Sheffield United) get, we still need to win the games.
"For us, to play the games with an obligation to win is nothing new. I don't remember playing one game without thinking we had to win it."
