LUFC - Leeds United v Colchester United preview

Leeds will be hoping to get back to winning ways with a return to Elland Road against Colchester this Saturday.

Form
Leeds have had a bad few weeks losing their last three games all away from home. They lost their last League game last Saturday 2-1 at Tranmere Rovers.

Luckily Leeds home form has been much better this season which is currently keeping them in the promotion race, they have won eight, drawn two and lost two in all competitions.

Recent form (last game first) LLLWWL

Colchester lost their last League game at home against lowly Hereford United 2-1. In fact Colchester are the reverse of Leeds and are doing much better on their travels than at home, so far away from home they have won eight, drawn one and lost five in all competitions.

Recent form (last game first) LWWLLL

Team news

Leeds
The Whites are still without the injured Jermaine Beckford and Andy Robinson. Fabian Delph returns after suspension whilst Malcolm Christie will be pushing for a place after returning from injury.

Colchester
Steve Gillespie has returned to training for the U`s but it`s probably too soon for him to return on Saturday.
On loan striker Jermaine Easter has scored two goals in four appearances and looks likely to lead the attack for the visitors



History
There have only ever been four games in all competitions between the two sides. The most famous encounter was in 1971 when Fourth Division Colchester beat the mighty Don Revie side 3-2 in an FA Cup fifth round clash.
There have been two clashes at Elland Road with Leeds winning both scoring seven goals and yet to concede.

Results (League unless stated)
1970/71 Colchester United 3-2 Leeds United FA Cup
1977/78 Leeds United 4-0 Colchester United League Cup
2006/07 Leeds United 3-0 Colchester United
2006/07 Colchester United 2-1 Leeds United

I am sure there will be a lot of tension at the game on Saturday. Leeds need an early goal to take a bit of the pressure off.

Confidence, home win, I hope.

Yep doubtless Colchester will have done their homework on us, so we will have to be really on the ball.

Lets hope we get a win these games we need to take 3 points from with Mk dons coming up then folowed by leicester i think this game could be a good turning point to get some players heads up just still worry about our defence, i just hope macca makes some changes at the back with all these young players coming through at leeds surley there must be a decent centre back there, he gave white a chance and he has not let us down same with Delph, if i was macca i would throw one in and see these lads play with no fear and would get stuck in...Fingers crossed for you boys its going to be a hard challenge MOT.......
turbo2
