These are the latest relegation odds from betfred, London 4/11, Huddersfield 5/1, Leeds 6/1, Hull kr 8/1, Salford 10/1, Wigan 100/1

We are now third favourites for relegation, if London keep picking up wins the other clubs near the bottom are going to start to panic.

The Easter weekend is absolutely massive for all clubs at the bottom of the table. All clubs will be looking at the fixtures thinking they are games they can win and be targeting 4 points, anyone picking up 4 points will suddenly be in the top half of the table. Anyone picking up 0 points will be in relegation panic mode. Huddersfield and Wigan have the advantage of a game in hand. These are the crucial fixtures.

Huddersfield v Cas
Wakefield v Wigan
Leeds v Huddersfield
Saints v Wigan
London v Catalan
Hull v Hull kr
Hull kr v Warrington
Huddersfield v London
Wakefield v Leeds
Salford v Wigan

Are these two massive must win games for Leeds?

You've done it now. What is our success ratio for your must win games? About 20%? Hudds could win all 3 and be well out of it soon. London are our target for mine

Unless things change which at the moment seems unlikely, it looks like a dog fight all season between us and London. Huddersfield are no pushover. Just hoping London’s super League enthusiasm will wane. Not certain if they have a good size squad if injuries take toll. I never thought we would be in this situation again.

Salford seem to be in reverse at the moment.

Of our first 10 games, 7 have been away from home. I didn't think we'd win any of the first 4 but we beat Salford. At home we were beaten by a better Wakefield team, should have beaten London and won against Castleford. The away defeats to Catalans and Hull FC wouldn't be a surprise in normal times and the HKR loss, though very disappointing, not really a shock result. The team will get better and results will start to go our way. I'm confident that we will not be anywhere relegation at the end of the season.

The expected turnaround won't "just happen" though. We saw in 2016 and again last year that just sitting around waiting for things to improve doesn't work. 2016 we turned it around but last year the team if anything got worse as the year went on.

Is a home loss to Huddersfield enough for Hetherington to sack Dave? If not - how many games will he give him?

No don't think it is. I think hes got 3 games. Lose them all hes got to go I'm sorry but he has. Club should be thinking about options just in case already.

We certainly can't wait too long or who the coach is will become irrelevant.
