Will Sol Bamba get his revenge on the Leeds United faithful today?

Last Sunday... not the best. Let’s get some of that January momentum back.

Today though, Neil Warnock, Sol Bamba, and Cardiff City come to Elland Road with their own agenda: a little bit of revenge against Garry Monk’s Leeds United.

I mean, that’s hilarious. Hope our “error prone back four” comments here at TIAT made the wall at Cardiff... love the guy, but is there a single reader who thinks Bamba would make the starting XI over Bartley or Jansson? Yeah. Here’s hoping Wood scores 4 today.

James Mahoney wrote up the full preview of today’s match, so read that before game time. We also had some optimistic looks to get your mind off that Sunday game we won’t mention again, so read up on Pontus Jansson being the future of the club, Luke Ayling being a future legend, and Chris Wood winning our POTM awards for January. All good stuff.

We’ll update this post as information comes in, so come back for lineups and then return after the match for our quick recap. Let’s get all three points today, lads: we need it. MOT.

PREDICTIONS

Johnny Wakefield: 2-0 Leeds. We’re good, and we’ll show it against a Cardiff side that struggles in the big moments. I think losing by a single, late goal to a good Huddersfield side (I know, I hate it too) induced a little too much panic this week, but that tends to happen with our support. Now we just need to see if panic set in with our squad as well. I think they’re too good to be affected and they come out and win easily. Goals for Wood and Pedraza. Sorry Bamba.

James Mahoney: 1-0 Leeds. The form has dipped over the last few weeks and I think that may continue on Saturday against Cardiff. I believe that we will be the better side overall but we will just need to penetrate the Cardiff backline. However, I have faith that Leeds will grab a goal in the 2nd half to take the points. MOT.
