 Leeds United v Bristol City - Team News

Bielsa set to name same line-up as Leeds take on Bristol City

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is expected to name the same starting line-up for the home game against Bristol City.

Bielsa has no new injury or suspension problems following the midweek draw at Brentford and confirmed both goalkeeper Kiko Casilla and striker Patrick Bamford will start.

 

Casilla has made a series of mistakes in recent matches, his latest leading directly to Brentford’s opening goal on Tuesday night, while Bamford has scored just twice in his last eight league appearances.

Tyler Roberts (calf) remains sidelined and fellow midfielder Adam Forshaw’s season is over as he is to have surgery in the United States to help resolve a long-term hip problem.

Bristol City have no new injury concerns following their midweek home win against Derby.

Recent signings Nahki Wells, Marcus Henriksen and Filip Benkovic all made their first starts for the club.

All three will be hoping to retain their places, with Wells and Benkovic both scoring and Henriksen producing a man-of-the-match performance.

Goalkeeper Tomas Kalas is closing in on his return following a hamstring injury, but striker but Marley Watkins (calf) is still unavailable.

Leeds v Bristol City

Leeds United host Bristol City on Saturday afternoon, with Marcelo Bielsa’s men just clinging on to second place after a run of poor form, while the visiting Robins are only outside the play-off places by virtue of goal difference.

This is a repeat of the opening weekend’s fixture, in which Leeds outclassed Bristol City with a comprehensive 3-1 victory at Ashton Gate. Bielsa has won all three of his games in charge of Leeds against Lee Johnson’s Robins, having completed a league double last season.

From the opening weekend on, Bielsa’s men looked imperious and well-set for automatic promotion, racing 11 points clear before Christmas, but with just one win from their last seven and four defeats from the last six, that’s now looking precarious, with third-place Fulham only behind on goal difference.

Bristol City, meanwhile, have been up and down, but are currently on a good streak with five wins from the last six games, while a 3-2 victory over in-form Derby County in midweek will have confidence high coming into this fixture. An away win would even see them draw level with Leeds in an extremely tight and congested top six.

Nahki Wells scored 13 goals in the first half of the season, including a controversial winner against Leeds last month, and he’s already underway with his new club, scoring on his first start against Derby. 

Leeds looked much-improved in their 1-1 draw with Brentford on Tuesday, but the same problems still became apparent, with the forwards snatching at chances and striker Patrick Bamford drawing a blank for the eighth time in his last nine appearances, with an error from Kiko Casilla - a common occurrence of late - costing them a goal.

There are very generous odds for the form team to win here, and given Leeds have lost five of their last seven games without scoring, Bristol City to win to nil is a very generous price at 12/1.

     Leeds United 1-0  Bristol City - Match Report

    Luke Ayling punishes Bristol City as Leeds enjoy fine day

    Luke Ayling scored against his former side as Leeds eked out a gritty 1-0 win over Bristol City to go three points clear in the Championship automatic-promotion spots.

    The defender lashed home early on but despite dominating the encounter, the hosts could not add to their tally.

    Leeds would have been buoyed by leaders West Brom dropping points earlier in the day.

    The Baggies were held by Nottingham Forest – and the win for Marcelo Bielsa’s side trimmed the gap between the pair to four points, with Leeds three ahead of third-placed Fulham.

    Leeds made an electric start and skipper Liam Cooper nodded wide from a corner after just two minutes.

    Helder Costa then saw a near-post effort well stopped by Dan Bentley.

    Bristol City were struggling to live with Leeds at times, but their patterns of good build-up play were without any end product – a familiar theme for Leeds this season.

    The opener arrived in the 15th minute and it came after a mad scramble in the box.

    Leeds were repelled on a number of occasions by excellent Bristol City defending but their resistance was finally broken when the ball fell kindly to Ayling.

    Despite being surrounded by a mass of City defenders, Ayling smashed the ball past Bentley.

    Leeds thought they had doubled their lead just a couple of minutes after, when Patrick Bamford tapped in after a shot had bounced kindly for him after striking the crossbar.

    Unfortunately, the flag was raised immediately as Bamford was offside.

    Undeterred, Bamford then flashed a shot at goal after a superb control and spin.

    City started brightly after the restart and were appealing for a penalty after Ayling blocked a shot in the area.

    Referee Tim Robinson was uninterested despite the vocal appeals from City boss Lee Johnson and his coaching staff.

    Jack Harrison was catching the eye in particular and he whipped in a dangerous centre that only just evaded the onrushing Costa.

    Chances were coming thick and fast for the hosts going into the final quarter of the game and when Costa laid it on a plate for Bamford he looked destined to make it 2-0.

    Somehow though, he saw his shot from a few yards kept out by the agile Bentley.

    A minute later Bentley made an even more scarcely-believable save.

    Costa latched onto a long pass and rounded Bentley only for the City keeper to somehow stick out a hand and divert it behind for a corner.

    Leeds were bossing the match and chances continued to come and go for the Whites.

    The impressive Harrison, who was a menace down the left flank all afternoon, thought he was the one to finally seal the second goal but his speculative effort came back off the crossbar.

    Substitute Jean-Kevin Augustin, with almost the last kick of the game, placed a shot just wide but the hosts’ profligacy was unpunished as they held on.
