Southampton add to Leeds' misery as pair land in Championship playoffs

On this evidence the best thing Daniel Farke could probably do is book his Leeds squad seats on a plane heading somewhere hot and let them lounge by a swimming pool until the first leg of their playoff semi-final at Norwich next Sunday.

Five or six days of vitamin D looks the only hope for a side mentally and physically shattered by a season when they have collected 90 points but still miss out on automatic promotion.

There was the faintest hope of it at kick off but, as soon as Ipswich scored at home to Huddersfield[2], the motorway to the Premier League was effectively closed.

It leaves Leeds third and facing a hazardous diversion taking in East Anglia and, should they make it that far, north-west London.
