...................ffffffffffffffffffffff...................Leeds Utd v Millwall
..........................Saturday 30th March @3pm
..............................Streaming links to follow


The boys from Bermondsey are the latest visitors to Elland Road on Saturday, and nothing would make them happier than bringing three point back to South London!

Bailey Peacock Farrell returns to the starting line up as first choice keeper Casilla serves a one match ban after being sent off against the Blades.

Having impressed during the two Northern Ireland qualifiers, the 22 year old will be full of confidence. Who knows, a clean sheet may give Bielsa something to think about?

Pontus Jansson has responded well to treatment following the knee injury he picked up against the Blades a fortnight ago, and looks set to retain his place alongside Captain Cooper!

Berardi stands by!

Fit again Barry Douglas will again have to make do with a place on the bench as duracell bunny Alioski is again preferred to the Scot! So much for last season's best left back in the Championship, he must be the disappointment of the season - only because I think we were all expecting a lot more!

Izzy Brown will return to the squad following being rested against Sheffield Utd having played 120 minutes for the u23's two days prior!

Millwall will be boosted by the news that shot stopper Jordan Archer is set to return between the sticks.

The goalkeeper was unwell before the international break, and was not involved in the 2-0 win at St Andrews or the Lions heroic galiant against Brighton in the Cup!

Nothing but a win needed here. Sheffield United won't slip up.

Hope Jansson is fit to play & our star defensive midfielder remains in the position he's made his own this season

Police will return to Elland Road for the visit of Millwall

Improvements in fan behaviour have meant that several of Leeds United's home fixtures this season have gone ahead without a police presence and have been stewarded by the club. However, some matches have been designated as posing a higher risk of violence and will continue to be policed.

West Yorkshire Police have released a statement thanking supporters for their conduct despite the highest attendance enjoyed by the club in over a decade. Superintendent Chris Bowen, who heads operational policing for Leeds District, said: “We recognise that times have changed significantly for the better in terms of the behaviour of fans. We have had a number of police-free matches at Elland Road and introduced the ‘Police Liaison Approach’ this season, which in turn frees up officers to be deployed across Leeds protecting our communities. “We have been able to move away from the restrictions we previously had to put in place around some games, such as early kick-offs and ticket exchange systems, which prove unpopular with fans.

No room for errors now. Just got to keep hoping SU & NC slip up but we have to keep winning it's as simple as that.

Starting to look like either Leeds or Sheffield Utd for 2nd spot. Norwich are too far in the lead...

No brown in the u23s, possible that he plays tomorrow? In for Klich who was away with Poland?

Norwich only need to win their last four matches & they are up, can't see the canaries slipping up now.

Between the Blunts & Leeds for that 2nd spot

Could be wrong, but I’m sure Bielsa mentioned it would be Klich’s role he saw for Brown in the first team if he was to make it

ok...Brown feels a bit attacking for me but if that's he's going to play..Could be a lot of space in our centre midfield if that's the case.

I saw Brown play for the U23's on Monday and he did okay but nothing outstanding.
I'm not sure if it was just the way he runs but he didn't look comfortable.
I doubt we will see much of him in the remaining games unless we get injuries which is a real shame but after such a long time out it's not completely surprising.
Jamie Shackleton on the other hand looked good.

Wont he able to see the game tomorrow due to other commitments, but it will be fun reading through the thread later in the day.

I see both Pontus and Forshaw return from injury... Nice to see so many options open to MB.

Whatever the case, we need nothing short of 3 points. A clean sheet would be nice too.

2-0 to Leeds.

Such a talent when fit, but hasn’t shown Bielsa he’s good enough yet, possibly minding himself and hasn’t got his confidence back, I’m hopeful he plays tomorrow, you wound wonder what his hopes at the club are if he’s not involved in someway after not playing tonight, here’s hoping he’s ready

Every game now as it comes up will be the most important game of the season. Starting today. Agree with CJay if we hope to get auto we have to win these games but Millwall will come at it like it's their game of the season. Fingers crossed Bristol C come to play v Sheff and Middlesborough stop the rot

Unfortunately I'm due to go out. I'll take a tablet with me in hopes of finding a connection and link but may not be able to post much. Fingers crossed the plans fall through

All to play for now but historically (this season, of course), international breaks have heralded a winning run for us so maybe this will prove the trend that gives us glory.
