David Prutton issues his prediction ahead of Leeds United’s clash with Blackburn Rovers

Published

on

Leeds United will be hoping they can pull further clear of the promotion-chasing pack in the Championship when they return to action this weekend. 

The Whites were forced to settle for a point in their last match, as they were held to a 1-1 draw with relegation-threatened Luton Town at Elland Road.

It means that Marcelo Bielsa’s men are sat top of the Championship table, but West Brom are now just a point behind the Yorkshire-based side heading into the weekend fixtures.

Leeds travel to Ewood Park to take on play-off chasing Blackburn Rovers, in what could potentially be a tricky test for Leeds against a team that will be eager to pick up three points.

Sky Sports’ EFL pundit David Prutton has predicted a 1-0 win for Leeds in the game, which is a prediction that many of the Elland Road faithful would be content with.

Leeds are six points clear of third-placed Brentford, who have started to build an impressive run of form heading into a crucial stage of this year’s campaign.

Who is this Leeds player?

The Verdict: 

I think he’s spot on with his prediction.

Leeds are going to be eager to get back to winning ways after a disappointing result against Luton Town, and I think this is the perfect game for them.

Blackburn will be keen to pick up three points themselves, so they’ll have to attack Leeds, which will definitely play into Marcelo Bielsa’s side’s hands on the day.

The Leeds boss will be hoping to see a positive response from their poor display against Luton, and I think we’ll see it at Ewood Park.
