Scott Wootton has admitted to BBC West Yorkshire Sport that Leeds United will not find it easy against Bournemouth on Tuesday.
Leeds will host the Cherries in the Championship at Elland Road and will actually head into the game as the ‘underdogs’.
Bournemouth are having a truly fantastic season and currently find themselves a point clear at the top of the Championship table.
On the other hand, Neil Redfearn’s side are just three points and two places above the relegation zone in the standings.
Leeds will have home advantage tomorrow, but Wootton is wary of the danger posed by Eddie Howe’s team.
“I could not play in the FA Cup when they played Rotherham and they made nine changes that day, and they were an absolutely different class,” the 23-year-old told BBC West Yorkshire Sport.
“They are at the top of the league, and that’s where they deserve to be. They are probably the best team in the division, so it’s going to be a very tough game.”
It may come as a surprise to many, but a win for Leeds tomorrow will be somewhat of an upset.
The West Yorkshire outfit are having a wretched campaign, and there are real doubts on whether they will be able to stave off relegation from the Championship at the end of the season.
Former Premier League outfit Leeds have not won a single competitive game since the end of November and are in truly bad shape.
Despite having some quality players, it appears that Leeds are simply unable to gel together as a team.
