Leeds: Stakes Are High

Leeds United
vs.
Ipswich Town

Elland Road

28th April 2007

1500

This really is it for Leeds United. If results go the wrong way relegation beckons a week early. Time to stand up and be counted.

Vital Quotes:

Leeds boss Dennis Wise sounds the rally call, also noticing that things are a little bit problematic this weekend.

Jim Magilton on the other hand, with Ipswich going nowhere in the league is simply looking forward to the test that is a relegation threatened team:

'We know Leeds desperately need the points. It's a win or bust situation for them and there will be a white hot atmosphere...

...for some of our players, it will be the first time they have really experienced such a big game and I am looking for them to handle the situation and learn from it.'

Leeds United Team News:

Alan Thompson makes the team after having his suspension lifted (it was a daft idea anyway).

Tore Andre Flo may make a shock return to the squad. Micky Gray recovers from illness and Rui Marques will continue in place of the now departed Lubo the Lion.

Player to watch: Everyone Again

Lets face it, they all need to do the business unless they want to leave the club or play in League One next season.

Ipswich Town Team News:

Striker Danny Haynes is likely to play, despite cracking his draw in a reserve team game. There`s no change in goalkeepers expected despite Lewis Price returning to fitness.

Player to watch: Who really cares?

I don't care who they are, how dangerous they are and what they can do.

Man for man Leeds need to be better than them.

Useless Facts

Did you know:

In the 2001 census, Ipswich was the 38th largest urban area in England.

England was once invaded by a load of angry men, the Vikings.

Vikings used to travel around in boats and wear silly hats.

Unlike farmers who wear silly hats and drive tractors....

...Ipswich's nickname, The Tractor Boys.

Ref Watch:

The referee for Saturday is Mr Nigel Miller from Co.Durham. In 37 games Mr Miller has managed 97 yellow and 10 red cards.

Match Prediction:

1-0 Leeds, it's a scraper but it will do!

Next Fixtures:

Derby away on the last day of the season, the 6th May.

With any luck, the game will still matter by then.
