Leeds United aiming to stay on track against Brentford Mark October 5, 2018 Leeds United Leeds United welcome Brentford to Elland Road on Saturday aiming to maintain the pressure on their rivals at the top of the Championship. Tyler Roberts’ 51st minute goal secured a 1-0 victory at Hull City during the week to keep the Yorkshire side firmly in the promotion mix. Leeds’ form at the start of this season has seen their odds by betting sites like BetEasy to win the Championship slashed and plenty of punters fancy them for the title. We suggest that you read more about the latest prices before wagering on the outcome. Marcelo Bielsa’s side have bounced back impressively from their first defeat of the season against Birmingham City with four points in two games and they will be eager to keep up the momentum against the Bees. The Leeds boss could be forced into a change at left-back this weekend, with Barry Douglas struggling to be fit after pulling a muscle during the game at Hull. Douglas has been ever-present in the league since his £3 million move from Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer, but Saturday’s game may come too soon for him. Kemar Roofe, Pablo Hernandez, Patrick Bamford and Gaetano Berardi also missed the Hull fixture, meaning Leeds’ resources are stretched pretty thinly at the moment. The home side are unlikely to find things easy against a Brentford team who are expected to be challenging for a play-off spot this season. Leeds have won just two of their last 10 meetings with Brentford, although they did pick up three points when the two sides last met at Elland Road back in February. Liam Cooper headed the hosts into the lead from Ezgjan Alioski’s free-kick after 31 minutes and although Brentford had chances to equalise the home side held on for a 1-0 victory. Dean Smith’s side have a made a solid start to the current campaign, but three draws in their last four games has kept them out of the automatic promotion places. The Bees recorded a 1-1 draw in their most recent match against Birmingham, although Smith was frustrated that his side couldn’t find a winner after playing against 10-men for almost 30 minutes. While Brentford are undoubtedly a difficult team to break down, Leeds are strongly fancied to pick up another three points this weekend. Bielsa’s side had been impressive at home up to the Birmingham game and backing a 2-1 scoreline for the Whites on Saturday could pay dividends.
