LEEDS UNITED vs. SWINDON TOWN

Elland Road

03/04/10

1500

NEXT UP: Leeds United

Only one point separates the two promotion chasing sides. Leeds are stuttering but can Danny Wilson's side get something from Elland Road

Vital Quotes:

Talking to BBC Radio Wiltshire Town boss talked about the game at Leeds...

'They will not fear us but we're not going up there afraid of them... We've got nothing to lose. People will see us underdogs and I'm happy with that... Leeds will be in a very determined mood.'

LEEDS UNITED Team News:

Despite being his knocked unconscious with a kick to head last weekend, Luciano Becchio may feature.

On loan Gary McSheffrey could also return but striker Tresor Kandol is suspended after being sent-off after a mighty 20 seconds!

Player to watch: JERMAINE BECKFORD

Some people feel he's the best player at this level. Others believe that he is lazy and over-rated. Whatever the truth maybe he scores goals!

SWINDON TOWN Team News:

The usual suspects of Alan O'Brien and Kurt Hammonds are out - Sean Morrison and Vincent Pericard could feature on the bench.

Both Scott Cuthbert and Billy Paynter will be looking to break into the starting line-up after recovering from injury.

Player to watch: JONATHAN DOUGLAS

A popular figure at Leeds United. Some were more than surprised that he was released. Town's star midfielder will be desperate to prove a point to Simon Grayson.

Match Facts & Stats

Town have the rare honour of holding the bragging rights against Leeds United after stuffing 3-0 at the County Ground earlier in the season.

However, in the 15 league fixtures between the two sides Town have only 2 wins, losing 9 and drawing 4.

Jonathan Douglas and David Lucas joined Swindon Town on free transfers after their release from Leeds last summer and have been crucial to Swindon's improvement this season.

Town also have Alan Sheehan on loan from Leeds.

Others to have played for both sides include -

Chris Kamara, James Milner, David Kerslake, Curtis Weston and Jamie McMaster.

Ref Watch:

M.P. Russell.

Match Prediction:

Leeds' dip has led to an excitement because for the first time Town travel to Elland Road with not much pressure - it's all on the home side. If we lose, it's genuinely not all doom and gloom.

Alas, I believe this to be a 'bridge too far.

Leeds United 3-1 Swindon Town

Next Fixtures:

Town welcome Tranmere Rovers to the County Ground on April 5.
