Based on a supercomputer, Leeds will finish third on 86 points, and will agonisingly miss out on automatic promotion by goal difference only.
Whites fans will take solace in the fact, though, that on Friday night they hammered West Brom in a hugely important game.
But Football Web Pages have calculated the final standings by predicting the likely outcome of every fixture between now and the end of the season.
As it stands, Norwich City and Sheffield United take the automatic promotion spots, while Rotherham, Bolton and Ipswich are doomed to relegation.
And despite Leeds’ emphatic win over West Brom, they’re expected to draw three of the next five games 1-1, before losing two of their next five after that.
The supercomputer also predicts that Marcelo Bielsa’s men draw their last game away at relegation fodder Ipswich 1-1.
Tonight’s performance, however, which saw Pablo Hernandez, Patrick Bamford and Ezgjan Alioski score, will bring promise to the city.
Patrick Bamford, who scored the second and third goals of the game, had his say on the performance.
“I’ve missed a few chances in the past few games but I knew if I kept getting the chances I’d score,” he said.
“We’ve shown that we’re back on track and we needed this. It was important tonight.”
And Leeds fans, who are still brimming with confidence, have had their say on social media.
One said: “I’ll tell you one more time….Leeds are gonna win the league.”
Another agreed: “Leeds are fantastic, will be very good when they get promoted and finally back in the premier league.”
A fellow fan tweeted: “All Leeds need to do is tidy up their defence and their possession in their own half and they are easy a top half premier league side.”
One tweeted about the quality of Leeds’ opposition this season: “Leeds are far too good for this league.”
Another tweet read: “Hope Leeds get promoted, they’re a club that should be in the Premier League, whether you like them or not!!”
