Leeds United will return to action on Saturday evening, when they take on West Bromwich Albion away from home at The Hawthorns in the Championship.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side will head into the match against West Brom on the back of a 2-1 victory over Wigan Athletic away from home at the DW Stadium in the league.

The West Yorkshire outfit are in good form at the moment and will fancy their chances of picking up all three points against the Baggies at The Hawthorns.

 

West Brom are one of the favourites to get promoted to the Premier League, but Darren Moore’s side are struggling for points at the moment - the Baggies have not won a Championship match since October 6.

While West Brom are just outside the Championship playoffs in seventh place at the moment, Leeds are currently at the top of the league table.

Former Leeds defender Tony Dorigo has given his thoughts ahead of the match, and has suggested how the two teams will view the game.

Darren Moore head coach

Leeds Live quotes Dorigo as saying: “What I would be thinking if I was Darren Moore, would be ‘You know what, we haven’t done well but this is the time to put it right. Leeds are coming to town, it’s a big game, it’s on telly, we can put a lot of wrongs right here’.

“But if I was Leeds I am thinking ‘You know what, I think we can turn these over and really make a big statement’ and try and put that run together that no-one has really has done this season just yet.”
