Leeds United Preview vs Wigan Athletic (A)

After a poor attacking performance against Forest, Leeds travel to Wigan to play the newly promoted side.

Leeds managed to score late to prevent their third loss of the season to a below par Forest side.

A game which lacked any real spark was covered in controversy as Roofe scored his 6th goal of the season via his arm.

A vital point which kept the Whites in a automatic promotion place. With a late chance for Hernandez the home side will feel that it was definitely two points dropped rather that one gained.

Stand out performers that the fans will hope turn up on Saturday are Jack Clarke and Adam Foreshaw.

The young winger brings a naivety to the field which means that he isn’t afraid to run at his man, having him in the game is a breath of fresh air.

Having come off the bench against Brentford, Blackburn and Forest, creating a impact and being a stand out performer Bielsa must me contemplating whether to start the youngster.

Wigan have fell of as of late, but are never a team to underestimate, they could beat West Brom one week and then lose to Millwall the next.

These kind of results see them in 14th after a strong start to the season. A key battle will be between Nick Powell and Kalvin Phillips.

The ex-Manchester United man has been their best performer this season, likewise with Phillips who has become one of the first names on the team sheets for Leeds.

The majority of the home sides play comes through Powell, he will aim to run at Phillips and play it through to Windas or out tho the wings.

Leeds will have to find their killer instincts in th next few games so that they don’t slide out of th top six after a poor run of games.
