'Dangerous and unpredictable' - Cardiff City manager Russell Slade expects a tough test against Leeds United

Cardiff City manager Russell Slade believes that Leeds United will be a tough side to play against.

Cardiff City manager Russell Slade says that he is wary of the threat that Leeds United can pose. 

The Bluebirds take on Leeds this weekend and Slade is expecting a tough test when they play.

Cardiff have been much improved under Slade's stewardship so far, but he is not getting carried away and he feels that Leeds' unpredictability makes them a danger.

"I see Leeds as dangerous opposition, highly unpredictable," he said to Wales Online today.

"They have talented players, but it's difficult to know what shape and tactics you are up against."

Leeds' team-selection and formation is made all the harder to second-guess as they have just changed their manager for the fourth time this season.

Neil Redfearn is now embarking on his second stint as boss during the season so far and Slade says that he has watched videos of the Whites during the 49-year-old's latest spell in charge to try and obtain some information about how they may set-up.

"Yes I have looked at it [videos of previous matches], but I still came up with the conclusion they are unpredictable," he said. "I know Neil well."

Leeds were in brilliant form when Redfearn was last in-charge, but their momentum has been halted by the arrival of Darko Milanic.

The Slovenian boss failed to pick up the three points in any of his six games in-charge at Elland Road and the side will be determined to get back to winning ways this weekend.
