Reverse Fixture: 6 October 2018: Leeds 1-1 Brentford
Leeds United visit Brentford on Easter Monday after somehow losing 1-2 to Wigan Athletic in rather disappointing fashion. The loss means that Leeds do not control their own destiny in terms of the automatic promotion spots, as they going into today level on points with Sheffield United, but with a worse goal difference, meaning that Leeds will need to win out and get some help along the way from one of Hull City, an already relegated Ipswich Town, and Stoke City.
Meanwhile Leeds face Aston Villa at Elland Road, who are in the middle of a nine game winning streak and travel to Portman Road to face off against Ipswich on the final match of the season. Before that, however, Leeds will face off against Brentford in West London, at a ground they haven’t won at since 1952. Although, honestly, the “haven’t won at Brentford since 1952” is a tad overrated as a statistic, as Leeds played Brentford exactly once from 1954 until 2009, and that was a 4-1 win against Brentford in the League Cup in 1961. Leeds haven’t exactly covered themselves in glory since 2009, so while the team hasn’t won away at Brentford in five straight matches, that number has got to change sometime, right?

Marcelo Bielsa has gotten this team motivated and ready to roll after every disappointing loss. The image of him after the Queens Park Rangers game was burned into everyone’s memory, as was the dismantling of West Bromwich Albion that followed that match. Here’s hoping that Leeds can pull out one of those performances and that our “friends” at Hull will do Leeds a solid.
