Leeds United continue their pursuit of EFL Championship leaders West Brom as they host Blackburn Rovers at Elland Road. Leeds have the chance to go top and should ease past an inconsistent Rovers.

Leeds Form


Leeds claimed a 2-0 victory at home against Queens Park Rangers in their last Championship fixture. It was yet another solid defensive display as they restricted Rangers to just one shot on target while Tyler Roberts and Jack Harrison got the goals.

It is the third straight home win for Leeds who could go top of the table with another victory on Saturday. Marcelo Bielsa’s men have conceded the fewest goals in the Championship this season and have kept clean sheets in their last three home matches.

Leeds News


Leeds’ solid defensive displays have been driven by Luke Ayling, Ben White and Liam Cooper and all three men are expected to start on Saturday. Eddie Nketiah missed the win over QPR with an abdominal injury and is a doubt for the visit of Blackburn which means Patrick Bamford is likely to continue as the lone man in attack.

Blackburn Form


Blackburn are coming off a 2-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday in their previous Championship fixture. They fought back from a goal down with Tosin Adarabioyo drawing them level on 88 minutes before John Buckley scored the winner in added time.

The victory ended a run of six straight matches without a win for Rovers who have been poor in recent weeks. Tony Mowbray’s men are particularly woeful on the road having lost five of their last six matches across all competitions.

Having won their last three home matches, Leeds United are short priced at 1.45 with a draw set at odds of 4.20 while Blackburn are valued at 8.00 for an upset at Elland Road. 

Leeds good home form means a -1 handicap is worth a punt at 2.25 while a win to nil should also be considered at 2.50 with the Lilywhites keeping clean sheets in their last three home matches. 

Leeds vs Blackburn Match Up


Luke Ayling, Liam Cooper and Ben White have impressed for Leeds United this season and should comfortably shut out the Blackburn attack. Leeds also have the quality at the other end of the pitch with Tyler Roberts who was on target against QPR and Patrick Bamford who is the team's top scorer with four goals.

Blackburn’s attacking problems mean Adam Armstrong has failed to score in his last four Championship matches. With Sam Gallagher boasting just one goal this season, Rovers are expected to struggle against the Leeds defence.
