Kilkenny: Up for the fight
Leeds United midfielder Neil Kilkenny is relishing the club's end-of-season Championship run-in.
The Whites have performed well this season in England's second tier on the back of promotion and they are currently fifth in the table with eight league games remaining.
Leeds lost 2-0 to Sheffield United in their last Championship outing, although Kilkenny is eager to help the West Yorkshire giants end their campaign on a high.
Kilkenny insists Leeds' priorities have changed since guaranteeing their Championship status and that Simon Grayson's side are now fully focused on trying for back-to-back promotions.
"I'm looking forward to the final eight games," said Kilkenny. "We'll try and keep going and hopefully do well.
"Everyone was talking about staying up but expectations change, now people are talking about automatic promotion and the play-offs.
"We'll keep our feet on the ground and see where we go. We know we have a young, hungry squad and hopefully we can see out the job and get promoted."
