Brighton started the season brightly but has not delivered in its last five games – three losses and two draws. Leeds unbeaten run ended with a defeat to Birmingham in its last League game – a defeat that was inevitable following the club’s poor performances in its last five Championship outings. Although Leeds might feel confident after dumping Premiership club, Southampton out of the Capital One Cup, this game is likely to end with honours even – which will do neither side any good.
Against the odds, I think Leeds could edge a 1-2 win
Providing all the players are fully fit I think we might have a chance here.
Mack-Smith might have a point to prove as he was a pre-season target for Colin, but hopefully he can be contained.
2-1 seems like a good score to me as long as we have the confidence to go for it, and don't let in any early goals.
