LUFC Leeds v Brighton Preview

Leeds United welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to Elland Road on Saturday hoping to rediscover their pre Christmas form.

Form


Leeds
Leeds have taken just six points from their seven league games since the turn of the year.

Last time out at home they suffered their first home defeat for 26 games when they went down 2-1 to Walsall.

The Whites are currently second in League One, four points behind Norwich and three points clear of Colchester in third.

Recent home form: LLWLDW

Brighton
The Seagulls were very unlucky to go down to league leaders Norwich City 2-1 at home in their last outing.

Last time out on their travels they drew 1-1 at Leyton Orient.

Brighton actually have a better away record than home record this season and have won five, drawn six and lost four.

They currently fill the last relegation spot but only on goal difference to Gillingham, Brighton also have a game in hand.

Recent away form: DDLWWW

Nothing less than three points will do, really need to score early or the natives will get very restless!

I said the crowd would be nervous against Walall and you could feel it. I think it will be worse against Brighton unless we make a good positive start. I fear we could be getting towards the booing stage for the team and individuals which will not help at all.

Vital we get off to a good start and get the crowd going from the 1st whistle. Very big game that could turn a section of the fans one way or the over.
