Championship: How to watch Leeds United vs Southampton

Leeds United’s dream for promotion to Premier League heavily depend on this fixture

Leeds United is on the brink of a significant milestone, but their fate hangs in the balance. The team must overcome Southampton to have any hope of securing automatic promotion to the Premier League. This comes after a disappointing 4-0 defeat at Queens Park Rangers last Friday, which has left their destiny out of their control as they approach the final day of the regular Championship season.

Daniel Farke's side needs to secure three points at Elland Road and simultaneously hope for Huddersfield's victory over Ipswich. If these conditions are met, Leeds will edge past Ipswich in the race for second place in Championship table. Failure to do so means settling for a spot in the play-offs.

Southampton, already confirmed participants in the end-of-season lottery, are looking forward to breaking their losing streak that currently stands at three games. Head coach Russell Martin is keen on turning things around and ending this season on a high note.

The Saints had previously secured a 3-1 victory in Leeds United match during their reverse fixture at St Mary’s last September. It wouldn't be surprising if both teams find themselves battling it out again later this month at Wembley for that coveted final promotion spot.
