Leeds had quite a difficult game last time out previous Saturday afternoon when the team visited Millwall. They were maybe slight underdogs that day but proved that the odds were completely wrong.
The players of Leeds had much more of the ball possession and controlled the game overall. However, they stood back in the scoreline in 55th with a goal from Wallace, but completely deservedly leveled up in the 89th minute via Harrison in a match they surely deserved even more.
Now, coming back to home matches they surely want to get a victory after two consecutive draw matches and to keep leading the table as they still stand first with four victories and three draws, having a point more than next three teams below them.
Roberts should lead their attack in a version of a 4-1-4-1 formation. Defender Gaetano Berardi (6/0) is sidelined, as well as midfielder Pablo Hernandez (5/3) and offensive players Patrick Bamford (5/0) and Kemar Roofe (6/4).
Preston, on the other side, were set as quite a favorite in their home match against Reading last Saturday afternoon, but the side suffered 2:3 defeat in the end. They looked decently well during the match, however simply couldn’t turn the match into their favor.
Reading was leading twice, while the home team managed to level up two times via goals from Johnson and Robinson, but failed to make their own chances count – especially in the second halftime. This is now their second game without a victory as they previously drew at home against Bolton 2:2.
They are now second from the bottom without only five points earned out of seven rounds. Still, without a point earned on the road, not even a single goal scored.
Robinson, Nmecha, and Barkhuizen should be their forwards in a 3-4-3 formation. Defensive midfielder Ben Paersons (6/0) and midfielder Ryan Ledson (3/0) are both suspended now for this one. Offensive midfielders Billy Bodin and Sean Maguire are long-term absentees. Midfielder Alan Browne (5/2) is doubtful due calf injury.
These two teams have met in Carabao Cup earlier late in August, however, this match is now of completely different importance. Preston is completely different when playing on the road in Championship and shouldn’t be able to threaten here much. Leeds definitely has what it takes to come up victorious here.
