Former Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday midfielder David Prutton has predicted on Skysports.com that Leeds United will fail to win this weekend.

Leeds will take on Brentford away from home at Griffin Park in the Championship on Saturday evening.

The West Yorkshire outfit will head into the match on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Derby County at Elland Road in the league.

The Whites have dropped out of the top six for the time being, and head coach Thomas Christiansen must be feeling the pressure.

Former Leeds midfielder Prutton does not believe that Christiansen’s side will pick up all three points from the encounter, and has predicted the match to end in a draw.

“Don't let the table fool you too much, this is one of the form teams in the division hosting one of the teams that are really struggling,” Prutton wrote on Skysports.com.

“Brentford are making their way through the league now, while Leeds have lost five in six and are in a right bit of bother, as shown by their defeat to Derby from a winning position in midweek.

“That being said, I think this will be a tight game on Saturday evening at what should be a lively Griffin Park, and I find it tough to separate these two. Score draw.”

A footnote added: “Prutton predicts: 1-1 with Ollie Watkins to score first.”

Leeds have struggled to play well and get positive results at Elland Road, and playing away from home could be refreshing for the players.

The Whites need to head into the two-week international break on a high, and the players have to find a way to grind out a result against Brentford on Saturday evening.
