Leeds United have turned a corner of late, introducing a number of young homegrown players to their side and climbing to the safety of mid-table, but fans might be surprised to learn exactly how well they’ve done.

In 2015 Leeds have taken 23 points, which is more than Championship leaders Bournemouth, second-placed Derby and play-off hopefuls Brentford, Ipswich and Wolves.

Averaging 1.9 points per game in 2015, if this form were applied to a full season Leeds would finish on 88 points. Over the past ten seasons that would be enough to win the title on five occasions, finish second twice and make the play-offs three times.

If Leeds can avoid selling any their most important players during the summer - not a given, admittedly - then there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be challenging for promotion next season.
