On paper this should be a walkover for Leeds, but it wont be on paper when they meat, Bristol have a good drawing record which worries me...We'll have to get at them from the off and get that early goal...It's vital we dont let them play maybe lookiing for a draw that why we need a early goal...

Remember that easy trio of games in Feb where we were supposed to notch up 9 out of 9 against Walsall, Brighton and Olham and finished up withy a loss, a draw and a win ??? SG ought to pin that up and say "no slip ups" this time. I am abolutely ****t*ng it. I have never been so up tight.
erni
You will have to find all your players have turned blind to lose against Rovers. You will roar your team up and good luck to you.
SFC Forever
A win any which way is all that matters
Tiny T

We really have to go at them from the off, they will have a full house roaring them on. Come on Leeds, I've been following you for over 30 years and would like a few good days to celebrate. One promotion and one league title is all I have so far!
