West Bromwich Albion defensive midfielder Gareth Barry has praised Leeds United to Sky Sports.

Barry is set to feature for West Brom in their Championship game against Leeds away from home at Elland Road on Friday evening.

The 38-year-old former Aston Villa and Everton defensive midfielder has spoken highly of Leeds and has praised the Elland Road faithful.

Barry told Sky Sports: "I'm looking forward to going back because it's a fantastic stadium. I’m sure it will be a sellout.

"I've watched their games regularly this season, they have fantastic fans and even when they went down to League One they were still supporting their club. But as a West Brom player I have to try and keep them as quiet as possible.”

Big game

With both Leeds and West Brom aiming for automatic promotion from the Championship to the Premier League at the end of the season, this evening’s match at Elland Road promises to be hugely interesting and exciting.

Both the Whites and the Baggies play exciting and attacking football, and there should be a few goals at Elland Road this evening.

Leeds are third in the Championship table at the moment with 64 points from 34 matches, four points clear of fourth-placed West Brom.

West Brom lost their last league fixture 1-0, and so did Leeds, and both sides will be determined to bounce back this evening.
