    Comment

    With Pearce, Austin, Brown, et al, out, and no money even for loan players, things look bad for Leeds. After a run of dismal performances culminating in an embarrassing 1-6 thrashing at home by Watford, the Whites have to face a rampant Millwall at the Lions’ Den on Sunday. Most pundits are predicting another defeat for Leeds, and the Wallies will certainly be expecting to gloat about an easy victory over their perceived enemy…
    Against the run of form (ever the optimist!), I see Leeds getting a result – if Neil uses the players he has to their best effect.
    Neil will need a strong back four (not three!) with players in their right positions – i.e. Peltier at RB, Dury at LB, and Lees in the middle along-side Kisnorbo (the forgotten defensive stalwart whose form has been good in the Development team) standing in for Pearce.
    Reverting to Neil’s favoured 4-2-3-1 formation; Tonge and Norris are capable of both protecting the back four and switching play into attack.
    With Diouf at the centre of an attacking midfield, flanked by Byram and Hall, Leeds should have enough guile, skill, and pace to supply Becchio and hurt Millwall on the counter.

    Prediction:

    Against the odds, Millwall 1-2 Leeds!
