Leeds and Reading both go into today’s game on the back of two consecutive defeats, which could result in a very tight contest, or a free scoring one at Elland Road.
The Whites conceded six goals before the International break and showed no signs of the solid defensive unit that sat at the top of the Championship during September.
However, Leeds will take pride in the fact that they remain undefeated at home this season and have conceded just two league goals.
Reading were victorious over the Whites at the end of last season and managed to secure a spot in the play-off final, but Jaap Stam’s side haven’t managed to replicate last season’s standards during the start of the new campaign.
The Royals currently sit third from bottom with two games in hand and have managed to score just nine goals in their first ten games.
A game which Leeds would be expected to win could prove to be a tricky task, as Reading have conceded no more than two goals per game during this term.
But United’s last five games against Saturday’s visitors have seen them win three, draw one and lose one.
Thomas Christiansen has had a fortnight to address the problems present in the Whites recent defeats, but will he keep faith with his wounded side or will a few changes be made?
