Leeds United came from behind to seal a stunning win over rivals Millwall on Tuesday. Marcelo Bielsa will be hoping things are a little less stressful when his side welcome Paul Cook’s Wigan Athletic to Elland Road in EFL Championship action this Saturday. The home side are 29 points ahead of their guests in the table, which makes Leeds the red-hot favourites in this one. Will United make it back-to-back wins at the weekend?

Leeds United Preview – Can the leaders kick on from Tuesday’s terrific win over Millwall?

Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United found themselves 2-0 down after just 23 minutes on Tuesday. The Whites looked to heading for a fourth successive league and cup defeat, but Bielsa’s words of wisdom worked a treat at half time. Leeds were a different animal in the second half, with Patrick Bamford (2) and Pablo Hernandez scoring to turn the game on its head and give United a much-needed three points.

Like West Bromwich Albion, who Leeds overtook on Tuesday, United have had a real slump in form in recent weeks. The top two look nailed on to be West Brom and Leeds, but third place and the chasing pack have closed the gap considerably. United are just four points ahead of the play-off places ahead of this round of fixtures.

Our betting prediction:
Leeds to score 3+ goals
6/4

Prior to beating Millwall on Tuesday, Leeds had not won at home since seeing off Hull City on December 10th. Still, only Preston North End, Fulham, Cardiff City and Derby County have picked up more home points thus far. United will be gunning for a ninth home league victory of the season this weekend.

Wigan Athletic Preview – Can the Latics repeat last season’s shock result at Elland Road?

Wigan Athletic picked up a memorable win at Elland Road at the end of last season, but Paul Cook’s boys have been dreadful on their travels so far this term. The Latics have taken a meagre seven points from a possible 45 on the road, losing ten of 15.

Wigan are currently in the bottom three of the Championship table, four points adrift of safety. It’s been a testing second season back in the second tier for Athletic, as they have picked up just six league wins all season. Wigan are well and truly embroiled in a fierce relegation scrap.

Despite their precarious position, Wigan did pick up a crucial home win over Garry Monk’s Sheffield Wednesday last time out. Jamal Lowe’s injury-time goal gave the Latics a vital 2-1 victory at the DW Stadium. Will that result stand them in good stead this weekend?
