Leeds head to Birmingham City this weekend as they look to keep their promotion challenge alive and kicking.
We spoke to I’d Radebe Leeds to preview the clash…
1. Kemar Roofe is set to be in the squad – would you start him?
No, I would continue with Bamford, despite his poor performance against Millwall. Having Roofe as an option, should Bamford struggle again, is really reassuring.
2. Barry Douglas is out for the season – how will Bielsa adapt to him missing once again?
Alioski will continue at left-back, and Leif Davis will be called upon as back up, I think. Worst case scenario, Gaetano Berardi can slot in as cover.
3. A lot’s been said about Caleb Ekuban this week – can you see him having a future at the club?
Right now, he will struggle to get into the side. However, Bielsa has been able to transform players that some fans didn’t think were good enough, so you never know.
4. Birmingham up next, what will have been learned from the game at Elland Road earlier this season?
We conceded two sloppy goals against Birmingham earlier on in the season and they executed their game plan superbly to stop us being able to respond. At this stage, we need to play like we want to be champions. If we get our mentality right, Birmingham will struggle to execute any kind of tactic.
