West Brom fans predict Elland Road clash

It’s a big game for Leeds tonight. Win and they could go back to the top of the table. A defeat to West Brom would mean sitting five points off the top and potentially out of the play-off places for the first time this season. 

Leeds don’t have a good record at Elland Road this campaign. They have only won one game and that was a tight 1-0 victory over Brentford after Eddie Nketiah scored after coming on as a late sub.

One defeat to Swansea and draws against Nottingham Forest and Derby round out a miserable home record and Leeds have still to score more than a single goal in a home game this season.

Given that, you’d think that West Brom fans would be confident, bringing the league’s best attack to Elland Road, but the majority are under no illusion as to the sort of test that awaits them.

One Baggies fan said that even with injuries – Pablo Hernandez is definitely out and Adam Forshaw will probably join him on the sidelines – you can “never count them out” and added, “hate to say it but they are a good team”. He goes for a 2-2 draw, which would keep up West Brom’s unbeaten record in the league.

Another fan predicted a score draw, this time a 1-1, and said it would be tough for West Brom to keep up the form they showed at QPR, when they won 2-0 away on Saturday.

Another West Brom fan quoted-tweeted a Leeds fan who posted clips of the last game against West Brom at Elland Road, when Leeds won 4-0.

He sent out a warning, saying, “Better manager and a better squad. These Leeds fans don’t know what’s coming”.

This was the overriding message – that Baggies fans would love to win but are expecting a tough game and would be happy with a draw.

Leeds need the win more and three points is important to get our title charge back on track.

We think West Brom will attack and that could play into our hands. We’re tipping Leeds to score more than one for the first time and for Patrick Bamford to finally start converting some of his many chances.
