Leeds defeat leaves Kishishev facing two drops for price of one - Pat Symes

Copy from Football Unlimited of 23/04/2007.

Dennis Wise and Radostin Kishishev both have added incentive to ensure Leeds do not drop down to English football's third tier for the first time in their trophy-laden history. While Wise is fighting to avoid having a first relegation on his fledgling managerial CV, Kishishev faces the unwanted achievement of going down with two clubs in the same season.

Kishishev is on loan at Elland Road from Charlton and Bradley Wright-Phillips' late winning goal, coupled with Charlton's 1-1 draw at home to their relegation rivals Sheffield United, means the double demotion is a realistic possibility.

"It is not something I am proud of," Kishishev said. "Of course I want Charlton to survive but I am playing for Leeds and my only concern is to help them escape going down. Such a big club in the third division would be unthinkable."

Wright-Phillips puts Leeds on the brink - Pat Symes

Copy from Football Unlimited of 23/04/2007.

Leeds's torment continues. They have two matches left, at home to Ipswich and away to Derby, to save themselves dropping into the third tier for the first time in their history.

In a bad-tempered match Leeds had midfielder Alan Thompson sent off in the first half and were beaten by a goal six minutes from time from Southampton substitute Bradley Wright-Phillips.

By then Leeds looked a tired side, struggling to cope with an incessant wave of attacks in the second half that led to a soft winner just when it looked as if they might hold out and earn a precious point.
