Recent respective form guides

Leeds United's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Whites have scored 5, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Burnley's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. The Clarets's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 9.

Leeds United's 35 points from 24 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.

Burnley lie just outside the playoff positions in the npower Championship, picking up 36 from their 24 games so far.
