Leeds are making a habit of winning away.

One of things you learn about football is the importance of winning at home and trying to at least grab a draw on the road. Win points at home, it is said, and try not to lose when you go away. Leeds, however, are turning that advice a bit on its head this year, as the team has won seven matches away from home and has grabbed 21 points away, third most in the division.

The home atmosphere at Elland Road should help propel the team to well-fought victories at home, but grabbing a number of points on the road will be critical if the club is to challenge for the automatic promotion spots this season or stay in the playoff places.

Anyway, on to the links.
