Match Facts
Leeds United are looking to complete their first ever league double over Wigan Athletic, having won 2-1 earlier this season.
Wigan have lost just one of their four league matches against Leeds at Elland Road (W2 D1 L1), a 0-2 defeat in December 2013.
Leeds have never lost a home league match on Good Friday (W3 D4 L0), winning 2-1 against Bolton on Good Friday last year.
Wigan Athletic have won three of their last four league matches on Good Friday (W3 D0 L1), winning 3-0 against Oldham Athletic last year.
Marcelo Bielsa has won 25 league matches this season - a joint-record in a Leeds manager's first Football League campaign in charge along with D****. Ray, who won 25 in 1927-28, when the club won promotion to the top-flight.
Wigan have won just one of the last six Championship matches in which they've gone ahead (W1 D2 L3).


Right here we go then, another tough game with Wigan playing a similar style to Leeds (but not as good ) this will be tough, after taking a point off Norwich last time out they'll fancy their chances of getting summat at ER although their away form this season has been pretty woeful.
I'm backing a 2-0 Win for us with Bamford and Alioski hitting the net (can't believe how crap I am at predicting though ) anyway with the blunts playing earlier we'll know what we have to do

Shef utd will be on a such a high now and we just have to hope Hull can at least get a point on Monday and we will have to win the lot to get promotion on the last game now.

Stoopo - Those stats make it look like we played well. 10 shots on target sounds like their goalie had to make loads of saves. In fact we had very little goal threat, our set pieces were woeful, crossing into the box was awful. We have scraped through in a lot of games recently but today our luck ran out

That's the same Sheff Utd that last week conceded a 95th min equaliser at home to Milwall and lost 3 key players ............... Bravo Leeds

Tslufc, absolutely spot on, we’ve been scraping through, couldn’t last forever.

What games have we scrapped through?

Sheff weds 1-0
Milwall 3-2

Score rarely reflects possession but does reflect us not taking chances or more aptly half chances, I just don’t think half the chances we create are that good.

Just gutted. I want to believe we can still do it, but my gut is telling me today was pivotal and we blew it! Can’t see SU bottling it now!
