There’s nothing between the team in terms of the number of goals they have scored this season but the main difference has been that Bolton have scored slightly fewer goals, which has allowed them to secure more points.
Where Neil Redfearn can be happy if he’s reviewing the stats, is where Leeds are showing a better conversion rate than their opponents.
The boss was critical of his side’s finishing in the FA Cup defeat against Sunderland, but they have the edge over Bolton in terms of being more precise.
The stats show that Leeds like to pass the ball around more and are a lot more aggressive over how they go about winning it back.
Redfearn should be confident that if his team can get a foothold in the game, press and win the ball back high up the pitch, they should be able to pile the pressure onto Bolton.
What Leeds can’t allow to happen is for an aerial battle to start developing. Bolton are head and shoulders ahead of Leeds in terms of aerial duels won this season, which hints at how they may look to attack Leeds.
This will be a tight game between a side looking to control possession in Leeds against a team that could try and exploit their weakness in the air.
