LUFC Leeds v Tranmere Vital Preview
Leeds United entertain Tranmere Rovers on Saturday hoping to continue with their 100% start to the season.
The Whites have won all four of their games this season in all competitions. The great news is the fact that three of them have been on the road, which was Leeds downfall last season.
Last time out they came from behind in the last ten minutes to defeat Walsall 2-1.
Rovers new manager John Barnes has had a mixed start this season, they started the season with a 1-0 defeat at Yeovil and followed this up with two big wins at home in the Carling Cup and League One. On Tuesday evening, they went down 1-0 at home against MK Dons.
The two clubs have only ever met eight times in their history, home and away.
At Elland Road, Leeds have won three to Tranmere`s one.
When the two clubs met last season it was one victory apiece, both clubs winning their home games respectively.
Leeds 3-1 victory over Tranmere at Elland Road in April secured them a Play off place.
