Inform United Host The Championship's Surprise Package

Last updated : 06 February 2015 By Elliott Heath

Brentford currently sit 5th in the Sky Bet Championship, two points above Watford in sixth and four above Wolves in seventh and just five points off of automatic promotion.

The Bees out-played Aitor Karanka’s Boro for most of the game last week but couldn’t break the deadlock and conceded a penalty when David Button rushed out and brought down Chelsea loanee Patrick Bamford.

Grant Leadbitter converted for the only goal of the game in what was a disappointing result for the West-London side.

Leeds on the other hand come into the game off of a strong 2-1 away win at Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield, with goals from Sam Byram and a last minute Billy Sharp winner wrapping up the three points. The Whites are unbeaten in four with back-to-back victories.

Neil Redfearn’s men are languishing down in 19th position, just five points clear of safety. From the 13 meetings between the sides at Elland Road, Leeds have come out on top seven times, with only two Brentford wins and four draws.

Leeds have no fresh injury concern so will line-up similar to last week. Mark Warburton’s side come into this game off the back of five wins in seven away games.
