Predicted Leeds United XI to play Brentford: Stick or twist for Redfearn?

Leeds United

Match to be played on Saturday 7th February 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Elland Road, Leeds.

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn will be full of confidence heading into the Championship game against Brentford this weekend.

Leeds have the home advantage and should be looking to use that to help them secure a third win on the bounce in the Championship.

Leeds played well against Bournemouth and showed resilience against Huddersfield, with Billy Sharp coming off of the bench to score a late winner.

The boss has had plenty of time to see how his players recover and one of his biggest dilemmas over the course of this week would have been whether to start Sharp or whether to stick with Steve Morison in attack.

Brentford have players who can help their side dominate possession this weekend so it’s important for Leeds to have options in terms of being able to play the ball long.

Morison can hold up the play while Leeds’s talented midfielders come into the game but it’s important that, as a team, they don’t rely on him to do the bulk of the attacking work.

Here’s the possible side he could go with.

Leeds United: Silvestri, Wootton, Bamba, Cooper, Taylor, Cook, Murphy, Byram, Austin, Mowatt, Morison
