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.

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.

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.
