The 72

Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers have enjoyed contrasting starts to their Championship campaigns so far, but if tomorrows game is anything like last seasons encounter at Elland Road, we are in for a treat as a five goal thriller came to a dramatic crescendo in West Yorkshire.

Leeds have their injury concerns, just like most of last season, with Gjianni Alioski, Eddie Nketiah and Jamie Shackleton all missing out on tomorrow’s clash and Luke Ayling struggling with illness, but this could provide an opportunity for others amongst the periphery of the squad.

Leeds United forward Patrick Bamford (9) during Leeds United’s 100th anniversary EFL Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds United and Birmingham City at Elland Road, Leeds, England on 19 October 2019.

Other areas of concern for The Whites continue to be mainly in front of goal, with Patrick Bamford struggling with his killer instinct despite his performance being of a very high standard otherwise.

Elsewhere, the team are performing as expected at the start of this campaign, creating more clear-cut chances as any other team in the Championship and with the return from injury of Pablo Hernandez, the team may see those stats increase even further.

GK- Casilla

LB- Douglas

CB- White
