Leeds United Preview – Can Leeds take derby spoils and take big step to promotion?

Leeds United secured a third league win on the trot in the Championship on the weekend with a narrow 1-0 win away from home at Swansea City and in turn took another big step back to the Premier League as they now hold a six-point lead over 3rd placed Brentford.

Previous wins against Blackburn Rovers 3-1 away and a 5-0 thrashing of Stoke City at Elland Road have helped maintain Leeds’s position at the top of the Championship and their automatic promotion now seems inevitable after many seasons of near misses and false dawns.

Leeds have also maintained their solid results at Elland Road too as the hosts have won five of their last six matches within an overall home record that stands at 13-5-3 35/14, but they’ve won by 2+ goals in just six of their 21 matches at home and not only will they be involved in a local derby on Thursday, but up against Barnsley who are fighting fro their lives.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Barnsley Preview – Can Barnsley produce upset?

Barnsley may be bottom of the Championship but The Tykes continue to doggedly fight their corner in their quest to avoid the drop back down to League One, and having suffered just one defeat out of their last six matches, the visitors may fancy their chances of causing an upset against this heavily fancied Leeds United outfit.

The loss came in the shape a heavy 4-0 defeat away from home at Stoke City, but wins against QPR and Blackburn Rovers along with picking up useful points in draws with Luton Town and Wigan Athletic, will give Barnsley hope of getting something out of this Yorkshire derby.

Barnsley have also lost just two of their last six matches on their travels and although they’re huge underdogs ahead of this tough encounter, they’ve never been beaten by more than one goal by Leeds United at Elland Road which will also give them hope here too.
