The race for the second automatic promotion spot hots up

Sheffield are getting the jitters certainly judging by last nights performance against bottom side Crewe. Watford managed to squeak a point from their home fixture with Derby drawing 2-2. Meanwhile the mighty Leeds negotiated a tricky fixture away to Crystal Palace coming away with all three points following a 2-1 win.

Sheffield United are still in 2nd place on 75 points but Leeds have closed the gap to 6 points and they still have a game in hand.

Meanwhile Reading march on towards the promised land despatching Burnley 3-0 and with a 14 point lead over 2nd and 20 points over third.

I have to point this out:

There's more than one team in the Steel City - and no-one in South Yorkshire would dream of calling them "Sheffield".

P.S.: haven't you lot been promoted yet? Slowcoaches. :-P

Everytime I mention this I get the same response - sorry. I guess I know who I am talking about - I don't see another Sheffield in 2nd spot. But just for clarification Yes I am talking about Sheffield United
