Millwall arrive at Elland Road tomorrow with no wins away from home all season. What a statement for them to beat us on our own patch and you can bet that Neil Harris will be saying exactly that to his players tomorrow, led by Steve Morison who will want to make a point to us. Adam Forshaw won’t make the game after signing yesterday but Laurens De Bock is fit to make his debut.
GK – Felix Wiedwald – Need him to keep the ball moving at the back tomorrow, he can’t be going long with Kemar Roofe up front. Into feet, use the full-backs.
RB – Gaetano Berardi – I think we’re about to see the best of Gaetano Berardi in a Leeds shirt. Has been playing left-back for nearly three seasons now and I finally think he will get a run in the side. Will be much happier getting forward on tis side, looking forward to seeing him back there.
CB – Pontus Jansson – Agent ruled out a move to the Premier League today and for the first time I think we’re happy he’s staying despite the rumours. Won’t let that affect him, will have a tough day up against Gregory and Morison who are the most physical strikeforce in the league.
CB – Liam Cooper – Despite the team playing well Liam Cooper is actually keeping his consistency levels up. Another who will have it tough and will need to battle as well as read the game well. don’t get involved with the rough tactics of Millwall’s front two.
LB – Laurens De Bock – No messing around with this one or easing him in, he’s being playing games all season and he will want to start. We need a left-back who can get into the final third as well, is this man the answer? Tomorrow we will see him for the first time.
CM – Ronaldo Vieira – Finally. We haven’t won a game since he got injured and we’ve missed him more than ever. Needs to be back in the side tomorrow after Christiansen said he’s fit today. The partner to Forshaw going forward this season and hopefully for a few years to come.
CM – Kalvin Phillips – The pressure is now on Kalvin Phillips. He isn’t breaking through anymore he needs to be stepping up and making himself the number one choice in his position if he wants to keep it. He’s due a performance and he won’t keep his place without one, Forshaw will be ready for next week.
RW – Gjanni Alioksi – Quite simply we need more from him. We aren’t blessed with width and on his day he’s the outlet this team crave. He needs to be up for every game and not just the ones where he isn’t up against a tough player. Tomorrow this is the case, he needs to show up.
CAM – Pablo Hernandez – The pressure is on him when Saiz is out and that’s the case for a few games now. Had a good game against Ipswich and we need him to be on it from the start tomorrow. Wouldn’t mind seeing him stay up the park and let Phillips and Vieira do the chasing.
LW – Stuart Dallas – Has to be back in the side for me. I think Cibicki will start but I don’t think he deserves to. Hasn’t looked like he wants to be on the pitch for some of the last games he’s played. Dallas is brave and direct and I’m glad he’s back fit again. Start him, see how long he lasts.
ST – Kemar Roofe – Needs some help scoring the goals and it seems like we are chasing that in the transfer market at the moment. He will benefit from Stuart Dallas being back in the side and hopefully we get him the ball in front of goal tomorrow.
