Match facts
◾Leeds won the last league meeting between these sides (2-1 in March 2016), following a run of five straight defeats against Blackburn.
◾Blackburn have won their last three league games at Elland Road. They've only ever won more consecutive league games away at four different clubs (five against Newcastle and Bury, four against Cardiff and Hull).
◾Leeds, who have gained four points so far, have made their worst start to a league season since 1980-81, when they had three points from their opening six games (in the days of two points for a win).
◾Similarly, bottom-of-the-table Blackburn (two points) have made their worst start to a league season since 1996-97, when they had just one point from their opening six games.
◾Leeds are without a clean sheet in 10 league games at Elland Road since a goalless draw with Middlesbrough in February.
(Cheerful Match Facts from the BBC)

12 hrs at work on Saturday and I reckon I got off light compared to the Fans at Elland Road............So Come On Leeds, it's time to repay the loyalty, I'm going for a 2-0 backlash with Sacko and Ant shaking the net .

Over to You..........................Predictions, Scorers etc.............you can even post sensible team selections and substitutions in the hope that Monk might read this forum

Come Onnnnnnnnnnnn Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeds!!!

Lubo, Sacko bounced the ball off Woods foot, he hardly moved

Reflexes. Hr still scored, didn't he? Poses a thrrat in the box when he ball is put in low to his feet. Need to play more football like that and actually utilise he talents f our players.

Totally agree, but I still think we should avoid giving him high balls

I saw a clip of the goal and honestly believe he didn't move to score

He still directs it man. I was there to see it!

posted on 13/9/16

I can't argue with that

Highlights for those that weren't there (like me )

posted on 13/9/16

You could see that Ayling was having problems with Emnes.

Sacko injuredbhimself in the celebration of the Bartley goal.

Didn't know Sacko was injured, nothing bad I hope

Everyone played well tonight, that's pretty much the best team we can look to put out, although I'd still maybe go with Wood over Antonsson.

Thought it was a good performance bar 5 minutes when they scored. Defence was solid for the other 85+ minutes and we looked a lot more creative going forward, but still a lot of improving to do.

Lubo, just found this

Garry Monk post match interview:

Sacko was struggling physically in the last 20 mins but stuck it out.

Kemar Roofe has a calf injury. Bridcutt picked up an "impact injury". Isn't to serious.

Sacko - we're trying to school him in English football but also trying not to take unpredictability out of him.

Saw the highlights and you can clearly see Wood is surprised when the ball goes in as he didn't seem to expect to reach him. Not impressed with the defending at times and they had the better chances.

Live today, fight tomorrow imo, nothing learned or gained from this one apart from the point obviously. ratings would be much appreciated if anyone has the time
