Predicted Leeds United and Blackburn line-ups

Here is how we predict Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers will line up this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 4th April 2015 at 14:00. Venue: Elland Road, Leeds

Odds: Leeds 9/5, Draw 9/4, Blackburn 6/4

Leeds United welcome Blackburn Rovers to Elland Road on Saturday as the two sides contest their first match after the latest international break.

Leeds have enjoyed a brilliant start to 2015, but they will want to get back to winning ways after only drawing 1-1 against Blackpool last time out on a pitch more suited to beach volleyball than football.

As for Blackburn, they have lost their last two matches – against Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion – so they will be looking for a change in fortune against Neil Redfearn’s impressive young side.

Blackburn are currently 10th in the Championship while Leeds are 13th, just two points behind Gary Bowyer’s men.

While a late surge for the playoffs appears to be beyond either side, they will still want to build up momentum for the duration of the campaign and see where that leads them.

The bad news for Leeds is that star midfielder Lewis Cook looks set for a spell on the side-lines after he suffered an ankle injury while playing for England’s under-19s.
