  1. Goodnight!

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Thanks for joining us on the live blog tonight. 

    It's looking like a huge, huge ask for Leeds to make the top six now - thanks to two goals in three minutes from Marvin Sordell and Michael Kightly. Kyle Bartley salvaged a consolation goal for Leeds but the damage had already been done. 

    We'll be back next week, when Leeds welcome Norwich to Elland Road. 

    Until then, enjoy the rest of your weekend. 

  2. Leeds need to make keepers work

    Leeds have to get better at getting forward. Someone other than Chris Wood has to step up and take shots from outside the box. They have to make the keeper work - it's like Leeds spend too much time trying so to score the perfect goal. It might be a scruffy goal but you have to be in there to get it. 

  3. NIGEL CLOUGH: This is a huge win

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    I think this is right up there. The amount of pressure Leeds put us under, in the last 15 minutes, and back-to-back Championship wins for the first time... Conceding made it more stressful than it needed to be in the last 15 minutes but I thought the lads protected Stephen Bywater brilliantly. He had very little to do today. 

    I would back our lads to keep two clean sheets over the next two games. The win against Huddersfield was pivotal. I think the lads are a bit disappointed they're not mathematically safe - we kept getting the scores on the sidelines - but you have to keep doing your own job. 

    Marvin [Sordell] does that in training all the time - once he turns, he can hit the goal with such power and accuracy. The players have pulled it out the bag at certain times this season, and it's about the nature of the opposition today. Leeds United are a massive club and we should have won there in October. We're not going to celebrate just yet - the challenge now is to go win another game. 

  4. Leeds lost momentum

    We talk about foundation laying, and the bigger picture is that Monk has done that. The worry is the form - some of those defeats have been narrow, and Leeds have not been able to retain momentum from beating Preston or the last-minute equaliser against Newcastle. 

  5. Could Leeds have done anything differently?

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    I think Burton were there for the taking a little - but more to the point, Leeds need players to help Chris Wood, look for the knockdowns. If you're going to go direct, you need support. The number ten is meant to be a special player - but Hernandez was deep again at times today. 

    It's not about luck - you need to hit the target from good positions. 

  6. What happens now?

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Adam Pope

    The optimistic part of me is saying every side in the play offs can still mess up. They're not, but Leeds could still go above Reading on goal difference if Reading lose their next two and Leeds get six points. It'd have to be crazy, but it's not out the question.

    Leeds are done if they don't win next week. That's the bottom line. A win against Norwich might give them a chance still. It feels raw now, but Monk has to pick his team up. 

  7. Were Leeds unlucky?

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    Ten shots, two on target. One goal, so Bywater has made one save. To be unlucky, you have to make chances. Leeds were probing, but without any poke. 

    Leeds had a wake-up call through the first goal, and they didn't heed it - they went the other way, and got rattled. 

  8. GARRY MONK: Leeds have transitioned quickly

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Garry Monk

    They've done so much this season - and when you've got the final hurdle, the biggest hurdle, it can feel disappointing. It shows how much it means to them - we've had meaningful games all season, and this club has not had that for a long time. It's hard to see the bigger picture when you're in the here and now, but the bigger picture is that it's hard to be critical of this team. There's a transition to be made - Brighton have done it over three or four years, and we've done it quickly. 

    We've been fighting so hard, for so long, that we're going to keep fighting with everything we've got. Football can be a strange game - hopefully, it will turn in our favour.   

  9. GARRY MONK: We have to keep fighting

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Garry Monk

    Our performance was enough to win the game, simple as. We controlled the rest of the game bar a 15 minute period. We lacked quality at times in certain positions and we feel it's an unfair result. We have a duty to show the determination we've shown all season and to be ready for the last two games. 

    It's never easy. They put their heart into it and there was only really one team trying to win it - we made a mistake against the run of play, but it is what it is. It's very hard to be critical of this group, as they've given the fans so much this season. It's out of our hands but for how far they've come, and for our fans, we have to fight. 

    It's very difficult at this moment, very raw. They came here with a mindset to win the game. We're hugely disappointed with the result, but while there's a small chance, we have to keep fighting to the very end. 

  10. GARRY MONK: My players are devastated

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Garry Monk

    We feel that's an unfair result. The first 15 and the last 15 of the second half, we were by far the better team. You could see the intention was to win the game - and they get the first goal from a mistake, and the second from our shock, really, and our struggle to recover. There was no way we deserved to lose that game, but now we have a duty to each other and to our fans to make sure we push as hard as we can. 

    They are extremely devastated after today, of course. We had enough chances and situations - maybe not enough quality always - but there's no excuses. This group has achieved a lot this season and this final objective was something we wanted to badly. It's out of our hands, but there's a slim chance - and if you have a chance, you have to take it.

  11. Monk must lift his team now

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    Leeds were deflated at full time. You could see how disappointed they looked - because they know how close they were. Leeds have lost the chance to define these play offs - you have to leave the pitch with no regrets, and I'm not sure any players will be today. 

    It's about keeping the pressure on other teams now. It's about Monk to lift them. It isn't over yet - there is still a fighting chance, and Leeds are in a position of relying on others now.  

  12. What about next season?

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    The teams that will come down from the Premier League for next year - that will not be an easy season, either. That's why this hurts so much - this was a really good year for Leeds to go for it. 

    It's not all over and you never know what can happen with football, but I think Leeds needed about seven points from these final three games. 

  13. Wood short of service?

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    There was service to Wood but it was looping up in the air, in the box. Leeds should have picked up those second balls dropping just around their strikers - but there was no one to mop them up, and that let them down. 

    The system has worked when people have been at it, but, sometimes, you have to make it happen yourself. You have to create things, think outside the box and take the game by the scruff of the neck. 

  14. How did the Leeds midfield do?

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    Vieira is brave, strong, wins the ball in key areas. He's so mature for his age and relieves so much pressure for Leeds because he's not afraid to be on the ball. I think Phillips wasn't at the races and the midfield probably need a head in there with a little bit more experience. 

    It's hard for young players to go into pressured games, and maybe O'Kane could have relieved that. Chris Wood was isolated and Leeds needed a number ten willing to run in behind the back four and meet those dropped balls.

  15. Leeds let it go

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Noel Whelan

    Ex-Leeds United striker

    We knew what to expect from Burton - they were organised, hard to break down. Leeds went a little bit more direct and got Wood into the game, but it wasn't enough. 

    Leeds needed a bit more fight and quality in the final third to test Burton a bit more. They didn't have that, and they had loads of possession that they failed to hurt Burton with. I just felt that this was a good game to really start the last three games with, and Leeds let it go. 

  16. The most important three points

    Burton 2-1 Leeds

    Tony Bentley

    BBC Radio Derby's Burton Albion summariser

    This is probably the most important three points Burton have ever got. Former European giants, fighting for a play off place - it was a massive moment in their history. Most people wrote Burton off from the outset - smallest club, smallest ground. But you don't win games with a wage packet. You win it with spirit.
