We have 'unfinished business' at Leeds, says Huddersfield boss

The West Yorkshire derby this weekend is heating up to be a good one.

Leeds United showed some serious signs of improvement last night, as they dispatched of Bournemouth at Dean Court. The Cherries took a 1-0 lead in the game thanks to an Andre Surman sixth minute strike but second half strikes from summer buys Souleymane Doukara, Giuseppe Bellusci and Mirco Antenucci saw Leeds leapfrog Bournemouth in the Championship table.

It was an excellent win for the away side and one which takes them up to 13th in the division.

Next up for Neil Redfearn's men is the visit of local rivals Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Leeds go into the game full of confidence after two wins and a draw from their last three games but The Terriers are not having it so good. They are without a win since mid-August and new boss Chris Powell faces a battle to win this Yorkshire derby at the weekend.

They drew with Wigan Athletic in midweek, which has of course given them some confidence - but Huddersfield will not want a repeat of their last trip to Elland Road - which ended in a 5-1 defeat.

And Powell has told reporters after last night's game how the club have 'unfinished business' up the M62.

"I'm looking forward to it, of course. These are the games you want to be involved in. It'll be a test for us on and off the pitch but we've got some unfinished business after what happened there last season."

Luckily for Huddersfield the man who scored a hat-trick that day, Ross McCormack, is no longer at the club so they will not have him to worry about. Unfortunately Leeds look like they might finally be clicking so Groundhog Day remains a possibility.
