Can Leeds United extend their excellent form? David Prutton believes so.

David Prutton has told Sky Sports that he expects Leeds United to maintain their red-hot form and brush aside Millwall at The Den tomorrow.

Leeds travel to the capital on a major high after beating Birmingham City 2-0 in midweek to move top of the Championship.

Thomas Christiansen's side are the only side in the football league still unbeaten in all competitions so far this season, winning seven and drawing two of their nine games.

The Whites' stunning run of form is arguably made even more impressive by the fact that Chris Wood - who scored 30 goals last season - was sold to Burnley last month.

It will be the Lions' first home game since thumping Norwich before the international break, with Neil Harris's side losing one and drawing one since then, but former Leeds man Prutton tells Sky Sports that his old club should have too much for the Londoners.

"Leeds are riding on the crest of a wave. Thomas Christiansen has had a great start, their recruitment looks good and it doesn't look like they're going to miss Chris Wood at all.

"Millwall will be happy to get back home after a couple of tough away trips. They beat Norwich 4-0 last time, but I think Leeds will have too much for them."

Leeds fans have not been this excited for a while, and you can see why.

United, so far, have been exceptional in defence and attack, conceding twice and scoring 14, and if they can prolong their stunning form then they will certainly be in the picture for a Premier League return come May.
