Check out our at-a-glance guide to Leeds United’s clash with Brentford at Elland Road
Key Battle - Stuart Dallas v Maxime Colin
Dallas is up against his former club tomorrow and the winger has done his best to undermine Brentford’s decision to sell him. He was excellent during United’s win away at Derby County and lively for Northern Ireland during the international break. Brentford’s defence has been porous so far and Dallas’ job will be to get at Colin, the French right-back signed from Anderlecht last month.
Key Man - David Button
Brentford are not the team they were last season. Andre Gray has gone, Alex Pritchard’s loan from Spurs was not renewed and Jota is nursing a long-term injury. In the circumstances, another big season from their goalkeeper, David Button, would help no end. Button is one of the top keepers in the Championship and he kept two clean sheets against Leeds last term.
Last time at Elland Road:
Saturday, February 7, 2015
Leeds United 0 Brentford 1
Goals: Leeds - Pritchard 65
Phil Hay’s Verdict:
Brentford’s start has done nothing to justify the sweeping changes made by the club to their coaching staff and squad over the summer. They look susceptible to teams who are willing to attack them and Uwe Rosler won’t be tempted to hold back, especially in front of an Elland Road crowd. A home win should be on the cards tomorrow, provided United don’t under-perform.
Home win - 6/4
Draw - 27/11
Away win - 33/16
