Match Preview : Leeds United v Coventry City

Interesting game at Elland Road. Looking at the table, we should be winning this considering Coventry are 15th and have been rather wasteful more than woeful this season. They have created chances time and again but have failed to convert those into goals. With our recent defence woes, I wouldn't rule them out having a fair amount of chances.

Neil Kilkenny is back after nearly winning the Asia Cup with Australia. Kilkenny's return could see us return to our old formation of 4-2-3-1 which was very successful in our unbeaten run up to the Cardiff game. It'll be harsh on Davide Somma to be dropped again, because he has always performed when given the opportunity this season but needs to be done for the team as we have looked shaky with 4-4-2, especially without a more defensive reliable midfielder like Neil Kilkenny.

Expected Formation :
Match Fact : Coventry have only taken one point away from Elland Road since 1996.

Previous Meeting : Coventry City 2-3 Leeds United.

Head-to-Head : W 42, D 21, L17.

Player To Watch : Jonny Howson, making his 150th appearance for the club.

Prediction : Leeds United 3-1 Coventry City.
