Leeds United lost to Hull City at the weekend.

Curtis Davies of Derby County looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Stoke City and Derby County at Bet365 Stadium on November 28, 2018 in Stoke on Trent, England.

Derby County defender Curtis Davies said on the EFL Show on Quest TV that Leeds United’s defeat to Hull City at the weekend was a blip.

Leeds suffered a 2-0 loss at the hands of Hull at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

It was the West Yorkshire outfit’s first loss after seven successive wins, and Derby defender Davies expects Marcelo Bielsa’s side to bounce back.

Davies said on the EFL Show on Quest TV: “Of course, this league, like you say, they have got three days before they can put it right. It’s a blip.

“It, obviously, only becomes a problem if you are not winning again after this, but ultimately Leeds are a very good side and I am sure they will come strong again.”

Bouncing back

Leeds have been arguably the best and most entertaining team in the Championship so far this season, and given the way they have bounced back from previous disappointing results, they will be expected to do the same this time as well.

The Whites will return to action on New Year’s Day when they take on Nottingham Forest away from home at the City Ground in the Championship.

Forest are going through a bad spell at the moment, and Leeds will be confident of picking up all three points against the Reds.

Leeds are at the top of the Championship table at the moment, while Forest are currently 10th in the standings.
