Ian Holloway predicts Leeds United v Brighton

The former manager and current pundit is back predicting Leeds games after the international break.

Ian Holloway is predicting a 1-0 win for Brighton at Leeds United on Saturday afternoon, according to his regular Sky Sports predictions column.

Indeed, according to the former manager and pundit, Brighton's defence will be too solid for the Yorkshire side and he feels Chris Hughton's men could be on for a special season.

Leeds are yet to win at Elland Road this term and the visitors sit top of the Championship table after remaining unbeaten for 10 games.

Holloway told Sky Sports: "I keep getting Brighton wrong and I can now see them rolling on. Their defence is so solid and I can't see Leeds scoring. They are the only unbeaten side in the Football League and I'm starting to get the feeling it could well be their season."

Holloway isn't doing anything bold by predicting a win for the unbeaten Championship leaders against a side that haven't won at home all season. But he's certainly increasing his chances of getting the call right...

It would be very difficult to back against Brighton, of course. Leeds were known for beating the top teams last season but, under Uwe Rosler, United just haven't had that same edge.

Anything is possible and, if the German makes the changes he suggested he would do before the international break, the Whites can start afresh. Needless to say, though, this is a huge test for the home side against Brighton.
