Daniel Farke, the manager of Leeds United, is not one to study statistics in the middle of a fierce competition for the Championship’s second automatic promotion spot, which appears to be headed towards Leicester City.

Not yet, anyhow.
In order to record their sixth straight league victory in 2024 and keep their perfect record in the New Year, Farke’s team easily defeated Rotherham United, their Yorkshire rivals, 3-0 on Saturday. However, they are now one point and place behind Southampton, who do have a game in hand.
Fourth-place Ipswich Town lost a 2-2 home draw against West Brom and now trail Leeds by three points despite having played one fewer game.

Although Southampton has been putting up incredible numbers since the middle of September, Leeds has been playing excellently lately.

The south coast team is unbeaten in 25 games across all competitions after defeating Huddersfield Town 5-3 on Saturday. Nevertheless, before the season ends, they still have trips to Leeds, Leicester, and Ipswich.

Farke said, “At the moment I’m not interested, I might have a look later on the sofa (after Saturday’s game), but it’s not important where you are after 20 or 30 or 31 games,” at the table. His team has the only undefeated home record in the division. You can see what happens at other pitches from game days 40 to 42, but you can’t control what happens there. After 46 games, everything depends on where you are.

“At this point average per game, which is currently a little over two a game, we can finish the season in a top-class position if we can sustain this over 46 games. But we must continue if we want to be able to discuss this in May.

“Your home has to be a fortress and this is what the lads have delivered, I couldn’t have predicted how many points the lads have delivered at home, so all the credit to them. Abysmal The situation for Rotherham at the bottom of the table appears more precarious.

With a far worse goal differential, they trail fourth-from-bottom Huddersfield by 12 points. It appears to be a matter of whether or not relegation is verified.

They have not had an away victory in a lengthy fifteen months.
One encouraging development for the Millers, who play Hull City on Tuesday, is that star defender Cameron Humphreys has returned to duty after missing the entire season due to a catastrophic hamstring injury sustained on September 23.
Humphreys, who entered the game in the 79th minute, stated: “It’s disappointing about the outcome, but it’s great to be back and not a bad place to come back to.”

“I was eager to return.” Even if it wasn’t simple, I’m glad to be back.
“It took me eight weeks on crutches to get the weight back on my legs, but I eventually succeeded.
“There are a lot of games coming up, but right now we are not doing well. Therefore, all we need is a successful run of games to get out of this predicament.”
