BREAKING NEWS:Leeds United’s promotion hopes get a significant boost as Ipswich falters in the Championship…

Leeds United’s promotion hopes were this evening boosted after Ipswich Town were held to a goalless draw at home to Watford.

This was only the second time this season Kieran McKenna’s side have failed to score at Portman Road, having also been shut out by Queens Park Rangers in December.

Wednesday night’s result means Leeds are only one point behind both Ipswich and Leicester City with four games to play, though the latter do have a game in hand on second and third.

Had Daniel Farke’s team beaten Sunderland on Tuesday, they could have been at the summit of the Championship with 90 points. However, the visitors managed to restrict Leeds to only a few clear chances in the final third, resulting in a draw and denying them the opportunity to claim all three points.
Ipswich made second-half substitutes against Watford on Wednesday night as they searched for a winning goal, though the dramatic finale produced in their recent 3-2 victory over Southampton could not be replicated.

The Tractor Boys will play again on home soil this weekend when Middlesborough make the trip to East Anglia for a 7.45pm kick-off. Leeds will host Blackburn Rovers, who remain embroiled in a battle to avoid relegation after losing heavily at Bristol City on Wednesday, while Leicester are away at another relegation-threatened side in the form of Plymouth Argyle.
