Pundit: This is what the outcome of Leeds United’s trip to Burton will be

Published

David Prutton is expecting Leeds United to return to winning ways in the Sky Bet Championship this weekend, when they travel to the Pirelli Stadium to face Burton Albion, reports Sky Sports.

The pundit is expecting Garry Monk’s side to beat the Brewers 1-0, with the Championship’s top goalscorer Chris Wood scoring the winner.

Leeds suffered a disappointing Easter period; after picking up a valuable point against title-chasing Newcastle United on Good Friday, Monk’s side suffered defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday, which saw them slip out of the Play-Offs.

Monk’s side are now seventh, but remain level on points with sixth-placed Fulham, who lead the Whites on goal difference.

Nigel Clough’s Burton side are fighting at the other end of the Championship table, and are looking to secure their safety in the remaining three fixtures of the season.

Burton are currently four-points clear of the relegation zone, and victory over Leeds could see Clough’s side confirm survival, if Blackburn Rovers lose to Nottingham Forest.
