Friday’s game between Leeds United and Middlesbrough is in doubt after some serious snowfall in the last 24 hours. More is expected to arrive and Boro felt they had to update fans after clearing the pitch today, but due to the forecast it could well be that the game is called off.

The weather isn’t great anywhere at the moment but the North East has been hit particularly hard and the fact that Boro have said they will keep fans posted means there is a very real chance that the game could get called off. Nobody wants this, fans especially but for the travelling fans it certainly isn’t great heading away anywhere in this weather, especially in the dark. There will inevitably be games called off all over the country this weekend but many will brave the conditions, the images of ex-Newcastle United defender shovelling snow from the field in the Peterborough game last night have been all over social media today.

The game itself is crucial with both sides looking to get a run together and make a push for the play-off positions. We have taken five points from three teams above us in recent weeks and that should have been nine, which would have left us on the door step of the top six. A win at Boro on Friday would be huge for confidence ahead of the run-in and a tough game against Wolves during the week next week makes it all the more important we get something at the Riverside. Boro are in decent form and they have a big chance of the play-offs themselves now Tony Pulis has taken over.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
