Leeds United will be nervous about resuming the title race with West Bromwich Albion because of the poor way they have finished recent seasons, according to former boss Kevin Blackwell.

Championship football is due to return on Saturday, June 20 after a three-month suspension due to the coronavirus crisis.

Albion and Leeds are separated by just one point with nine fixtures left to play having jostled for top spot for most of the season.

But Blackwell believes the Whites' record of slipping up in recent years will weigh on the minds of Marcelo Bielsa's players, which could hand the Baggies a crucial advantage.

"I think Leeds and West Brom, definitely, they're in the driving seat," Blackwell told Sky Sports.
