Matt Le Tissier & Jeff Stelling predict score in Leeds v Huddersfield clash
The Leeds United game on Saturday will be described as “winnable” everywhere but so would the Wigan game last season.
Put simply, there can be no complacency between now and the end of the season. Every game is a cup final. Every three points is a step closer to the Premier League.
That said, there are a lot of very knowledgeable pundits who think that Leeds will take all three points against Huddersfield at Elland Road on Saturday.
In fact, there’s a clean sweep from the Sky Sports panel made up of Jeff Stelling, Charlie Nicholas, Phil Thompson and Matt Le Tissier.
Stelling and Nicholas think it’s going to be another nervy game for the Leeds fans with both predicting a 2-1 win.
Thompson and Le Tissier both predict an easier game, although not up there with the 4-0 against Hull. They both think the score will be 3-1.

They can’t all be wrong can they?
Interestingly, all four think that Leeds will concede, which will be the team’s first in five games. Illan Meslier has a 100% clean sheet record in the Championship he’ll be keen to hold onto.
And, aside from the Hull game, the loss of the clean sheet would have seen Leeds drop points in any of the three previous 1-0s.
The defence was key to us having a fast start and for our slump.
All the bookies have Leeds down for a routine home win too, with odds around 1/3.
Huddersfield are as high as 9/1 to spring a shock, while the draw is 4/1.
We’re praying the bookies and the Sky pundits have got this one right.
