Leeds United and Reading will face each other in the Championship this weekend.

Leeds Manager Eddie Gray looks dejected during the FA Barclaycard Premiership match between Arsenal and Leeds United at Highbury on April 16, 2004 in London.

Eddie Gray has told LUTV that Leeds United will win against Reading at home this weekend.

The West Yorkshire outfit will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Reading at home in the Championship.

The West Yorkshire outfit will head into the match against the Royals at Elland Road on the back of a 3-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday away from home at the Hillsborough Stadium in the league.

Prior to that loss, Thomas Christiansen’s side had gone down 3-1 to Cardiff City away from home at the Cardiff City Stadium in the league.

Leeds legend Gray has backed the Whites to pick up all three points from the encounter.

“3-1,” Gray told LUTV when asked for his prediction.

“The fans will be expecting us to win,” added Gray. “That’s important, to pick the three points up. I am sure we will.”

Reading's start to the season has been far from impressive, and it is hard to see the Royals win at Elland Road.

Although Leeds’s recent results and performances have not been great, Christiansen’s side should be able to manage a win, especially as the match is at Elland Road.
