Leeds United flashed some level of threat against Cardiff on Saturday, but this was disjointed and ultimately saw the Whites slip to a 2-0 loss against the Blues.
That loss snapped a six-game winning streak stretching back to the 2-0 loss against Newcastle back in November. The two Cardiff goals were also the first goals scored at Elland Road since that game.

United show four changes from the side that promised, then eventually folded against a Cardiff side who were resolute more than special but a side who thoroughly deserved their victory.
Coming in to the line-up are Eunan O’Kane, who is obviously in there as the replacement for the suspended Liam Bridcutt. Hadi Sacko and Kemar Roofe also start the game out wide, a twin move that relegates new boy Alfonso Pedraza and Northern Ireland international Stuart Dallas to the bench.
The big news for Leeds United fans though, is the inclusion of a passed-fit Pontus Jansson, who takes up his usual place at the heart of the Leeds United defence and alongside his defensive compadre in Kyle Bartley. The inclusion of Jansson has gotten Leeds fans chattering excitedly over on Twitter, and it also means that Liam Cooper is relegated to the bench.
One thing that United fans seem in agreement about its the attacking intent that this Garry Monk selection points to.

The appreciation is also found in this fan’s tweet.
Yet more appreciation from yet another Leeds fan.
James is another Leeds fan who sees Monk’s selection as an extension of a winning formula.
What? Is it possible? Hopefully both David and Leeds will cook up a treat tonight.
Now begins a night of attending to both of my significant others (Mrs Guile and #lufc) and hoping that they don't find out about each other.
