All-time Record: Leeds v West Brom 34W 18D 33L

Reverse Fixture: 10 November 2018: West Brom 4-1 Leeds

It’s hard to call any games “must-win” in March, but if we’re gonna start tossing those words around, might as well be now.

Leeds had an opportunity to reclaim first place in London against Queens Park Rangers in midweek, but instead lost 1-0 and remain in third place, level on points with second placed Sheffield United. And because things are never easy, Leeds will now take on West Brom who are once place and four points behind Leeds, sitting in fourth place with 60 points.

West Brom have lost once in their last five matches, and that was last Saturday against Sheffield United. Leeds will need to produce a good defensive performance like the Blades did to keep West Brom down, as they have perhaps the deepest and most talented roster in the Championship.

Leeds, on the other hand, are still missing Kemar Roofe through injury, so Patrick Bamford will have to start justifying his transfer fee pretty soon if Leeds are to make it through these next couple weeks.

Leeds dominated possession in the loss at West Brom earlier in the season, but failed to take their chances. If that sounds familiar, it’s because that’s what has plagued this team all season. If Bamford, Roberts, etc, are all able to play up to their ability and convert a few chances at Elland Road, than Leeds have an opportunity to get revenge on a team that gave Leeds their worst defeat of the season. If the team finishes like they did at QPR? Well, then while “crisis” is a strong word, it definitely won’t be good for Leeds.
