Welcome to another game that's got folk bricking it before a ball's been kicked
Seriously...…..a bit nervy about this one, on paper it's 3 points but Bolton fighting for survival and us needing to up our goal difference and get the 3 points to take us back to the top...…..an interesting 90+mins ahead

Venue...Elland Road...Date...23rd Feb...Kick Off 15:00hrs

Match facts
Leeds have won their last six matches against Bolton in all competitions and have beaten the Trotters twice already this season (in the league and League Cup).
Bolton have lost their last four visits to Elland Road against Leeds in all competitions since winning 5-1 under Dougie Freedman in March 2014.
Leeds are looking to win seven consecutive matches against an opponent for the first time since winning eight in a row against Arsenal between 1973 and 1976.
Bolton are looking to win consecutive away league matches for the first time since beating West Brom and Reading in their first two away Championship games this season.
Leeds have already won 18 league matches this season - more than in six of their previous seven Championship seasons, with the exception the 2016-17 campaign (22 wins).
Bolton's last seven league goals have been scored by different players (Beevers, Ameobi, O'Neil, Buckley, Hobbs, Donaldson, Connolly).

So a game of 3 points, Bolton 3 points above relegation zone and us 3 points from the No1 position, the incentive is there for both sides but i'm pretty confident Bielsa will have our Lads ready for the challenge, I'm going for a 3-0 Win with Bamford showing his class and Roberts nicking one

You can't get much more than three points pr game, so what's not to be happy about now?

7 victories gives us 85 pts plus what we pick up from draws. I see victories v

- QPR
- Reading
- Millwall
- Birmingham
- Sheff Wednesday
- Wigan
- Ipswich

and at least a point v

- Preston
- Villa
- one of WBA and Sheff Utd
- Brentford

to give us 89 points.


That should be enough, with a gap of at least 4 points to 3rd

A win and ppl are complaining?

Like everyone i’d Like to win 5-0 every game. But i’ll Take scrappy 2-1’s til the end of the season. Just because Norwich got a bagful against Bolton, everyone thinks we should. Not how it works.

Bolton are fighting for survival, it was never gonna be easy, relieved we got the 3 points but thought Roofey would have buried a couple of Bamfords chances, still hopeful he'll go on a goal fest though

Thanks for joining in Lads

I think Norwich will take some beating. They were by far the better team when they played us. We seem to be going backwards - no-one seems to be able to score. We need 20 plus attempts for every goal we score. The team will have to play far better on Friday if we want to get anything from the West Brom game. I am so nervous every game we play now. There is no room for error.

So, it’s “as you were”. We are still 3rd with a game in hand. Sheffield Utd did what they had to, it is now up to our lads to win the next 2!
