Leeds United Boosts Automatic Promotion Race Amid Ipswich Town Pressure

Leeds United's Boxing Day Blitz

In a compelling Boxing Day clash, Leeds United showcased their mettle with a resounding 2-0 triumph over Preston North End. Sky Sports pundit David Prutton, foreseeing an intriguing turn of events, believes Leeds is set to intensify the race for automatic promotion.

Backing Daniel Farke's squad to build on their impressive victory against Ipswich Town, Prutton envisions another triumph at Deepdale. The emphatic win over the second-placed Tractor Boys in West Yorkshire has catapulted Leeds within a seven-point reach of their rivals in the league standings.

Pascal Struijk, Crysencio Summerville, and Joel Piroe, along with an own goal from former Leeds defender Leif Davis, secured the crucial victory, positioning Farke's side prominently in the automatic promotion battle. Ipswich, now facing league leaders Leicester City on Boxing Day, may see the gap between the two teams shrink to a mere four points.

Prutton, a former Leeds midfielder, empathizes with the challenges faced by Preston in recent times. Despite their favorable position in the table, a dip in form has made the journey challenging. Reflecting on Leeds' impressive win over Ipswich, Prutton anticipates a tantalizing scenario where the gap could narrow to four points, adding pressure on Kieran McKenna's Town side.

"It has been a frustrating spell for Preston," Prutton notes in his Sky Sports predictions column. "Leeds will be feeling fantastic after their win over Ipswich. They can close the gap to four points, and with Ipswich set to face Leicester later in the day, things could get very interesting. Anticipate an away win, with pressure mounting on the Tractor Boys."
