The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

AS our ri­vals from West York­shire would say, ‘it was our cup fi­nal’. If that was a cup fi­nal then one team got stage fright.

It was pos­si­bly the most one-sided game I have seen at the KC this sea­son and at times City em­bar­rassed a poor Leeds team.

Sone Aluko was a sen­sa­tion up front, drop­ping deep to bring Robert Koren and the wing backs into the game. Leeds fans boo­ing their own team? Good re­sult.

I was op­ti­mistic that we would make the play-offs at the be­gin­ning of the sea­son to build on where we left last year.

Steve Bruce has added some guile and qual­ity by bring­ing in Ab­doulaye Faye and Aluko in and play­ing a 3-5-1-1 for­ma­tion means that all the play­ers are play­ing in the po­si­tion they are best in.

We have come out of the Christ­mas pe­riod un­beaten and sec­ond in the ta­ble.

Can we reach the promised land again? I think so.
