Predicted Leeds United line-up to play Birmingham: Rosler to make three changes

Here is how we predict Leeds United and Birmingham City will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 3rd October 2015 at 14:00. Venue: Elland Road, Leeds

Odds: Leeds 13/10, Draw 12/5, Birmingham 2/1

Leeds United welcome Birmingham City to Elland Road on Saturday with Uwe Rosler’s side desperate to get another win under their belts as soon as possible.

Leeds are currently 15th in the Championship table and after their 3-0 defeat away to Middlesbrough last weekend they have to up their game for the visit of Birmingham.

Gary Rowett’s side are currently fifth in the table after collecting 15 points from their first nine matches, but that is only four points more than Leeds have at this stage, showing just how quickly things can change in the second tier.

Birmingham defeated Brentford 2-0 last time out courtesy of goals from Michael Morrison and Clayton Donaldson while Leeds’ defeat came in no small part due to a defensive horror show from Giuseppe Bellusci.

Fellow centre-back Sol Bamba also looked nervous as a result and that is an area of the field Rosler will have to solidify sooner rather than later.
