Leeds v DERBY

With the festive period upon us, and no doubt everyone will be busy enjoying themselves I thought I'd put this up early.

All together now,

Weeeeeee all hate....

Always think this is a big advantage, especially as we can make a few changes without significantly weakening the team.

What changes do we think Clement will make. A start for Bent?

A tired Leeds we should be able to take advantage of.

I can see Bent, Hendrick and Wiemann getting recalled for this one to give some fresh legs.

Didn't realise Leeds had won there last two games, seems the unpopular Steve Evans is doing a decent job.

Finished 1-1, Leeds like to pass the ball a lot, but aren't clinical in the final third.

Caught a bits of yesterday's game, Leeds were on top mostly, but yes didn't make the most of it. I wonder if we will approach it like the hull game and let them have the ball, put press quickly and counter attack. Or will we try to control the possession.

Leeds have some good players, especially in midfield, but do lack a clinical striker.

As far as changes go, I'd definitely start Bent, he's looked very dangerous recently. Though it's difficult to drop one of Ince or Russell I would give Wiemann a start to add freshness to the team and i would start Hendrick, but again not sure who I would take out.

Wednesday go to Boro today, anything other than a Boro win and we stay top, and that's with the same games played.

I would guess Russell and Butterfield would go out.

History would suggest those would be the changes, but arguably Butterfield is the form midfielder. Though if expected it is a physical game, you want Thorne and Johnson to play.

Middlesbrough 1-0 up already, more importantly though with Hull losing, a chance to get a cushion from them. Brighton also play tomorrow.
