Uwe Rosler explains what makes Leeds dangerous against Middlesbrough

Uwe Rosler believes that Leeds United can get at least a point against Middlesbrough in the Championship next weekend.

Leeds United head coach Uwe Rosler has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that his players can get something from the game against Middlesbrough.

The Whites take on Middlesbrough away from home at the Riverside Stadium in the Championship on Sunday.

“We’re going into the Middlesbrough game with three points,” Rosler told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “That makes us dangerous. It’s interesting now.

“We’ve got nothing to lose going there and that suits our team. I wouldn’t be surprised if we come back from Teesside with something in our back (pocket).”

Leeds will head into the game at the Riverside Stadium on the back of a 2-1 victory over Milton Keynes Dons away from home in the Championship.

The Whites, who are aiming for a top-10 finish this season, are brimming with confidence at the moment, but Boro will be favourites to win next weekend.

Not only do Middlesbrough have a better team, but they are also in better form at the moment.

Aitor Karanka’s side have won their last five competitive matches, and playing at home will give them an added advantage.

Boro are aiming to finish in the top two of the Championship this campaign, and the players will be determined to pick up all three points at home.

However, the Championship is a hugely competitive league - perhaps even more competitive than the Premier League - and a home defeat for Middlesbrough is not entirely impossible.

Leeds, though, will have to play the best they can in order to register a win at the Riverside.
