Burton Albion boss Nigel Clough has said that he can see Leeds United achieving big things over the next two seasons after his side handed a blow to the Whites chances of promotion by claiming a 2-1 victory over them during the weekend.
Marvin Sordell and Michael Kightly scored second half goals to seal the win for Albion, which will ease their relegation worries.
With just two matches remaining, the Whites now trail sixth placed Fulham by three points. After being in the playoff positions for much of the season, many fans of Leeds will be disappointed by their recent poor run of form.
Clough however maintained that Leeds can take heart from what they have achieved this season and possibly get better in the near future, he said, “I have not looked at the top half of the table for a long time. But nobody thought Leeds would be anywhere in with a chance of the play-offs this season.
“He said this week he was ahead of schedule and maybe in a year’s time they expect them to be in this sort of position. But he’s taken them from being a bottom half team to challenging for the play-offs and I think there’s a lot more to come from them in the next couple of seasons.”
