Rotherham United manager Paul Warne has admitted his side have “no expectations” when they travel to Elland Road on Saturday to face Leeds United.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have started the campaign in impressive form with back-to-back victories over Stoke City and Derby County in the league, while they also beat Bolton Wanderers in the cup in midweek.

 

The Whites have emerged as early title favourites due to their impressive form, but realise there is a long way to go still.

Meanwhile, Rotherham are expected to be one of the teams fighting relegation in the Championship this season, but a win over Ipswich Town means they have three points from two league games.

Rotherham boss Warne has revealed in his pre-match press conference that he is well aware that his side face a difficult match against Leeds.

"I'm hopeful after back-to-back wins the lads have confidence in themselves, which they should have and we go into the game with no expectations. They can go and enjoy being the underdog. Leeds have been very impressive,” Warne said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Leeds will be keen to keep their early season momentum in full flow and send out a message to the rest of the division that they are promotion contenders.

Bielsa’s attacking style of play has already seen them score seven goals in their opening two league games and they could have a field day against a Rotherham team that conceded five to Brentford in their first fixture.
