Leeds Utd v Reading Matchday Thread

Welcome to the Matchday Thread and hopefully a Good Home Win
Quite a good record against Reading but as we all know there's no place for complacency in the Championship

Venue...Elland Road...Date...Sat 22nd Feb...Kick Off...15:00hrs

Team News
Leeds United
Marcelo Bielsa has no new injury concerns and could select the same side that beat Bristol City 1-0 in their last match.

On-loan striker Jean-Kevin Augustin is pushing to make his full debut, but Tyler Roberts (calf) remains out.
Still no word on Casilla's FA hearing so it seems safe to assume he'll start

Reading
Mark Bowen will check on winger Ayub Masika, who has been struggling with a stomach upset.

Jordan Obita (ankle) and Pele (groin) have overcome minor injuries and are available to play at Elland Road.

Match facts

Leeds United have won their past three Championship matches against Reading without conceding a goal.

Reading have lost three of their previous four away league visits to Leeds, winning the other in October 2017.

Leeds are looking to pick up consecutive league wins for the first time since a run of seven in November/December. Leeds have lost four of their past seven league games, as many as they had in their first 26 this season.

Reading have won just one of their previous eight league games (D4 L3), though it was their last Championship fixture (3-0 vs Sheffield Wednesday).

After a run of eight games without a goal, Reading's George Puscas has scored in consecutive league games. Six of his nine goals for Reading this season have been scored away from home.

A wee hint from Bowen here "Reading manager Mark Bowen has told Berkshire Live that Leeds United do not have anyone in their ranks with the ability of John Swift, even if Marcelo Bielsa’s men run ‘harder and faster’ than the Royals star." Hmmmmmmmmm we'll see

So there we are then, hopefully we can keep up our momentum with a good home win, It's 3-0 for me with Bamford , White and Dallas getting the goals

My concern is that we are relying on other people in our team rather than the striker to score our goals.

Do you think this also concerns Liverpool fans?

No because they are the luckiest team in history with poor opposition in the PL as demonstrated in the CL this week.

It’s a team game and we have basically a front three. Costa and Harrison should be scoring more. Klich and Pablo should be scoring more .....and yes Bamford should be scoring more.

Have a great game JLA.. Are you in Leeds for anything other than the match?

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry for the delayed response.

I arrived in the UK shortly before the Forest game but was unable to go. Went to see Brentford play Boro instead. After seeing Leeds at Brentford I went to South Africa fir 8 days to celebrate my mother’s 93fd birthday. I returned on Friday and went up to Leeds on Saturday. On my way to Liverpool now and will be back in Leeds. After the Boro game, I return to the USA on Thursday.

I’m excited to be at this game in the East Stand. I will be in the Peacock from about 1:00 pm and in Billy’s after the game for a bit. I’m wearing black jeans, a black puffy jacket with hood and a black Leeds Kappa sweatshirt. The giveaway will be the hot blonde by my side wearing a similar jacket but with faux fur around the hood.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

And the hot blonde Jonny? What’s his name?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Kiss me and I might tell you! 😉
