Leeds United will look to get back to winning ways in the league this weekend away at Wigan Athletic.
After a draw with Nottingham Forest last time out in the league, Marcelo Bielsa revealed that he is set to keep his side the same for this clash this weekend.
Here, we spoke to Tom Bradley of I’d Radebe Leeds to discuss that amongst other issues going into this one…
1. Eddie Nketiah is off the mark after the game against Salford, can you see him featuring off of the bench for this one?
I’m not sure, to be honest. If we see him at all, I think it will be in the last 25 or so minutes. His goal against Salford will be a good confidence boost, so hopefully we do get another taste of what he can do.
2. There’s strong hope Kalvin Phillips is going to sign a new contract. A big boost without doubt, but how would you expect him to stay without Premier League football?
The reality of the situation is that he will probably leave if we don’t gain promotion this season. You wouldn’t be able to blame him, as his stock has risen tenfold since the arrival of Marcelo Bielsa.
3. Marcelo Bielsa said in his press conference he wouldn’t reveal his team but did so anyway, are you happy with the line-up from Forest taking on the Latics?
Yeah I am, although I’d like to see more of Costa in the coming weeks. We should have put the Forest game to bed, however, our away form has been decent since Bielsa Ball began so I expect the same side to be able to get the job done.
4. Up next, Wigan, what are you expecting from Paul Cook’s men?
I’m expecting a tough game. Our season more or less ended when they beat us at Elland Road last season, so I’m sure Cook will remind his players of that to get them fired up.
