Leeds United have been backed to beat Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Saturday by all of Sky Sports’ Soccer Saturday pundits.
On the Super 6 website, host Jeff Stelling, Charlie Nicholas and Phil Thompson have all predicted that the Whites will win 2-1 while Matt Le Tissier has tipped Marcelo Bielsa’s men to win 2-0.
Leeds will be wanting to bounce back to winning ways this weekend after a disappointing draw with Luton on Tuesday night saw third-placed Brentford move within six points of them at the top of the Championship table.
It is by no means time for fans to panic but we really do not want to see that six-point advantage whittled away at anymore, especially with the form that Brentford are in.
Blackburn are a decent side but are really a team that Leeds should be beating, even if Stuart Dallas is ruled out through injury.
Leeds have won six of their last seven meetings with the Lancashire club while Tony Mowbray’s side have lost their last two Championship games against Barnsley and Wigan.
Bielsa has done a fantastic job at Elland Road and if he can oversee a win in this fixture then the Whites are going to be just five matches away from the Premier League.
Let’s hope they can get the job done this weekend because, honestly, we cannot take any more drama and want to see promotion won as unLeeds-like as possible.
In other Leeds United news, the Whites are eyeing up this £5.1million-rated international striker.
