Match Preview


This is shaping up to be one of the most important games of the Championship season.

After a superb start to the season, Leeds have been dropping points left, right and centre of late, having won only four of their last 11 games and now find themselves outside of the top two for the first time in months.

Bielsa, though refuted the fact that Leeds may be losing momentum in his post-match press conference after their loss to QPR.

"Your question doesn’t have any basis because if you watch the game what you can say is this team has too much energy and you are telling me if the team lost energy," he told reporters.

"What our team has shown in every game is we have an excess of energy. It’s clear you don’t know what you’re talking about because if there’s something this team doesn’t lack, it’s energy. If you look at the figures, if there’s a problem this team doesn’t have it’s a lack of energy, even if we have problems as all of the teams.

"It’s not an opinion because you just have to look at the figures to draw your conclusions."

Meanwhile, West Brom's January signings have not disappointed and they are slowly but surely creeping up on the top two.

A loss last week to Sheffield United did not help their promotion bid, but they remain just four points off an automatic promotion berth.
