Barnsley v Leeds Utd Match Thread - Shackleton starts for Forshaw

Post by Ellandback1 » Thu Sep 12, 2019 8:16 am



Barnsley v Leeds Utd

Sunday 15th September 2019 12.30 | Oakwell Stadium


Having recorded back to back losses in the League Cup against Stoke on penalties, and injury time misery versus Swansea City, Marcelo Bielsa will be hoping Leeds get back to winning ways on Sunday lunchtime, courtesy of a request from South Yorkshire Police.

Leeds are looking to win six consecutive away matches in all competitions for only the third time in their history. Marcelo Bielsa has no new injury concerns plus Luke Ayling and Tyler Roberts have returned to full training. Roberts in particular impressed during the U23 goalless draw against Crystal Palace recently and is available for the Barnsley game. Bielsa must decide whether to stick to the same starting XI that has propelled the Whites to third in the table or give Nketiah and Costa their first league starts of the season.





Barnsley have Cauley Woodrow, Jacob Brown and ex-Leeds lad Alex Mowatt back in the squad from injury for the Yorkshire derby against third-placed Leeds but they will be without left-back Ben Williams, who is suspended after his sending-off against Wigan. The Tykes are hovering just above the relegation zone in 21st place, and have not won sine the opening game of the season when they beat fellow promotion favourites Fulham. However, this is a local derby and anything is possible. Barnsley are looking to avoid losing back-to-back home league matches against Leeds for the first time, having lost 2-0 at Oakwell in November 2017 in their last meeting there.


Leeds XI vs Barnsley:
Casilla, Alioski, White, Cooper, Dallas, Phillips, Shackleton, Hernandez, Harrison, Klich, Bamford

Seems like yonks since we saw Leeds in action.

I expect the same starting lineup that we saw against Swansea.
I suppose we will find out at the presser tomorrow.

For the first time in a long time I have a feeling Bielsa make a change or two for this game.
I think either Costa or Nketiah will start but not both.
I think Alioski will keep his place.
The bench is likely to be the same unless someone is dropped and he decides to include Roberts on it (way too soon in my opinion though)
There's bound to be a few ex Leeds players with a point to prove so I'm expecting a tough game but I fancy us to come back with 3 points.

1-2 to Leeds Goal scorers Mowatt, Bambi and Costa and a lot of yellow cards

-----------------------Casilla-----------------------
Dallas--------White------Cooper--------Alioski
----------------------Phillips----------------------
Costa----------------Klich-------------Harrison
-------------Nketiah-------Bamford-------------

Subs
Hernandez
Berardi
Meslier
Douglas
Davis
Shackleton

I'm going for attacking pace and balance. It's a 4-1-3-2 which changes to a 5-3-2 when defending.

I'll be absolutely flabbergasted if Bielsa selected that team

Dropping our best attacking player since our premiership days doesn't rest easy with me.

Doubt he'll play two up top Matt
