Kilkenny insists Leeds still top chance for promotion

Three losses in four matches has not dented the confidence of Leeds United midfielder Neil Kilkenny.

The Whites have dropped their form in recent weeks, falling to sixth on the English Championship table, but according to Kilkenny they still have a strong playoffs chance.

The Australian international insists that Leeds have the ability to go on the type of run they need to ensure a promotion opportunity.

"There's going to be pressure on us and we're in the run-in with a few other teams," Kilkenny told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

"It's all about who handles the pressure and hopefully we can.

"If we go on a run now and win five games, everyone will turn around and say 'Leeds have great momentum for the play-offs'.

"We need to take it game by game but also try to do that."

Leeds have fallen five points behind Adam Federici's Reading and six behind fourth-placed Swansea City ahead of Saturday's meeting with 11th-placed Watford.
