Sheffield United vs Leeds United: Match thread

Today's line-up's:

Sheffield United: Simonson, Nosworthy, Montgomery, Doyle, Evans, Bogdanovic, Vokes, Mattock, Lowry, Quinn, Lowton. Subs: Yeates, Aksalu, Cresswell, Kozluk, Bent, Riise, Maguire.

Leeds United: Schmeichel, Lichaj, Bromby, O'Brien, McCartney, Johnson, Bannan, Snodgrass, Howson, Gradel, Becchio. Subs: Bruce, Naylor, Kilkenny, Paynter, Higgs, Watt, Somma.

Luciano Becchio is back in the starting eleven, he replaces Billy Paynter up front. It seems a little harsh on Billy who the fans have taken as a cult hero. The past few games he has put a good shift in, however in front of goal Becchio seems more consistent at the moment. Barry Bannan makes his first start for Leeds, he comes in for Neil Kilkenny in the centre of midfield.

I expect this Leeds team to be back scoring goals today, against a very poor Sheffield United team at the moment. The home side are fighting for survival and will be scrapping for every ball. Both Henderson and Williamson are suspended for today's game, Matthew Lowton has made the starting eleven, after missing training this week.

I expect Leeds to beat Sheffield comfortably today, but you never know in football especially with Leeds United. Like I said yesterday I expect a 0-3 win for the Whites and lets hope I am correct.

Come on Leeds.
