West Bromwich Albion head coach Slaven Bilic has warned Leeds United that they are focussed on winning promotion to the Premier League and won’t be affected by playing behind closed doors, ahead of Championship restart. The campaign starts on Saturday and there are only nine games left to play.

Leeds United are leading the Championship table. West Brom are sitting just a point behind Leeds.

“Nothing is easy,” Bilic told the Daily Mail. “There is big pressure on us and playing in empty stadiums shouldn’t change our attitude. Our goal is not to have somebody clap us. The goal is going to the Premier League. That kind of achievement requires that you cope with pressure.

“We want to finish the season as we were doing. We were up there. Of course, there is a long way to go but we are in a good position and have a strong belief in ourselves.”

The Whites will play against Cardiff City on Sunday. West Bromwich, meanwhile, will host Birmingham City.
