Leeds United and Brentford are the two worst teams in the Championship at what?

Leeds United face Brentford this weekend, but don't expect many successful crossing attempts.

Leeds United take on Brentford this weekend in a clash of two sides who have limitations in a key area.

Both clubs rank lowest in the Championship when it comes to successful crossing attempts, with and without corners, with Brentford worse from open play.

Ipswich Town are the side in the division with the best success rate.

Ipswich 33% 30%
Brentford 18% 15%
Leeds 18% 17%

The low accuracy rate in terms of crosses, can perhaps be put down to a deliberate lack of width in terms of formations.

The last game against Huddersfield saw Leeds line up in a narrow looking 4-1-2-1-2 system, meaning that when the side did put crosses in, they were not necessarily from strong positions they had worked into. The lack of success from set pieces is a little less easier to explain, especially with physically imposing figures like Rodolph Austin in the side.

For all the difference in style however, Ipswich have just one more point from eight games than Leeds, and three more than Brentford.

The momentum this weekend is certainly with Leeds, winning two in a row, while Brentford have lost two successive games.
