After a bright start to the 2017/18 campaign, Leeds United are going through a bad patch at the moment.

The Whites have lost four of their last five games, and find themselves sixth on the Championship table, six points behind league leaders Wolves.

Leeds travel to Ashton Gate Stadium to face the in-form Bristol City side, and Sky Sports pundit David Prutton thinks that Leeds will suffer their fourth defeat on the trot.

The Robins are on a roll here, being undefeated in their last 10 Championship games. They are fourth in the league with just one point above Leeds, so it will be a very tight contest.

Prutton says that the manner in which Leeds started the season looked like they would storm the league and run away with it, but are struggling at the moment.

On the other hand, Bristol are flying high in the league, and they were denied a victory last week by a brilliant defensive display from Burton.

"It's all going wrong for Leeds. For a brief period they were flying high and it looked like they could storm the league and run away with it, but they've lost their last three on the spin and don't really look like scoring," said Prutton to Sky Sports. 

"Bristol City, meanwhile, are flying high and were only denied victory last week by a fantastic defensive display by Burton. I've got to go for a home win here, though."
